Srishti Goswami, a 19-year old Agriculture Science student was given the charge of CM of Uttarakhand for one day on 24th Jan. The initiative was taken by The State Commission for Protection of Child Rights to mark National Girl Child Day. The chairperson of this commission, Ms. Usha Negi forwarded the idea to Trivendra Singh Rawat (CM of Uttarakhand) and he approved of this idea citing that it’ll send out an encouraging message to all girls, showing capabilities of women to make strong leaders. The idea was inspired by popular bollywood movie ‘Nayak’ starring Anil Kapoor.

She so checked that no drug or illegal substance is sold within 500 m radius of schools.

On becoming CM for one day and stating strong leadership abilities, Goswami expressed thankfulness to CM Trivendra Singh Rawat and the State Commission. The idea of making a 19 year old as CM for one day was inspired by “Nayak” where the hero, played Anil Kapoor took charge of the state for one day.
