In his representation, Rajan has lamented that Sanskriti Sadan building at Dharmashala was constructed in 2005 at a cost of Rs. 60 lakh and it soon immerged as a hub of literary activities. Many a writer from all over the country started making Dharamshala their destination for pursuing their literary writings. But in 2009, unfortunately the building was handed over to Central University for its camp office.
He further said that the State Government had been earning Rs. 30,000 per month on account of the rent being paid by the Central University while on the other hand the Govt. has failed to make alternate arrangement for Writer's Home during the last 3 years. This, he said, reflects the highly insensitive, apathetic attitude of the Govt. towards the writers' community. He told that the State Govt. was also instrumental in closing down all other Sanskriti Sadans in Kullu, Chamba, Shimla and some other places, which is a clear case of indifference towards the writers' community.
According to Rajan, Chief Secretary has also assured him that the building of Sanskriti Sadan at Dharamshala will be restored to the writers' community after the Central University constructs its administrative office.
