Chief Minister Prof. Prem Kumar Dhumal asked the Union Government to sanction all pending bills of the state as they have been unattended to for a long time. He added that these bills have already been cleared by the Vidhan Sabha and only need to get sanction from President of India. Prof. Dhumal also requested the Home Ministry to expedite the sanction of these bills. The government of Himachal is also seeking a full reimbursement of expenditure being incurred on the security of HH the Dalai Lama and Karmapa Lama by the State Government.
