On the occasion of the 17th foundation day or Uttarakhand Diwas, Pacific Mall in Dehradun was awarded as the best contributor towards the development of the city. The honour was conferred by the Chief Minister of Uttarakhand, Shri Trivendra Singh Rawat in a ceremony ‘Uttarakhand Uday’ which also witnessed the presence of eminent personalities like renowned Bollywood singer Kailash Kher and BJP State President, Shri Ajay Bhatt amongst others. The event, which was an evening affair, also saw officials from the police department being awarded for their commendable job in civil administration and recognition for the hard work they put in.
Post this, the crowd that had gathered at the Parade Ground for the award ceremony were treated to various melodies from Kailash Kher. This was followed by folk songs and dances which brought out the flavour of Uttarakhand from everyone present there. The folk artists not only mesmerised everyone with their performance but also left a lasting memory of the history of Uttarakhand in the eyes of the audiences.
Feeling elated about the award, Abhishek Bansal, Executive Director, Pacific Group said, “It is a great honour to be recognised on such a platform and being awarded for the best contributor towards the development of a city is a big feat in itself. We at Pacific Mall feel equally connected to the city of Dehradun as much as the city and its residents feel connected to us. This is the reason why we have always tried to maintain the touch of this beautiful city in the ambience inside the mall and the same reflects in the various activities we have conducted across the city in the past. This recognition will keep us motivated towards giving back more to the city for the warmth with which it has accepted us in the past years.”
