“It was the result of his vision and forceful advocacy that Himachal finally attained statehood in 1971,” said Virbhadra. The issue raised by Dr Parmar pertaining to statehood was taken lightly by some but his dreams had been accomplished. He further said the people would remain indebted to him for his tireless efforts for getting separate political identity for Himachal.Speaker, BBL Butail said Dr Parmar had a lot of knowledge. He was a great litterateur and always evinced keen interest in reading and writing.
