Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh today attended the final day of International Lavi Fair in Rampur, around 135 km from here. The four-day traditional fair was inaugurated by Governor Acharya Dev Vrat on November 11. The chief minister said the fair had a long distinguished history and even before independence of the country, it was a famous trade fair as Rampur was the old silk route of trade between India and Tibet. Such fairs being celebrated all over the state are playing an important role in promoting brotherhood and showcasing the rich traditional culture of Himachal, he said. "Itis our responsibility to make the future generations aware of the age old traditions and customs of the state," he said.
