Arunachal Guv urges Centre for infra devpt along India-China border


Itanagar, Jan 23 (PTI) Arunachal Pradesh Governor Brig
(Retd) B D Mishra on Saturday requested the Centre to initiate
measures for the development of infrastructure along the
India-China border in the state.

The governor, speaking at the inaugural day of the
69th plenary of the North East Council (NEC) at Shillong under
the chairmanship of Union Home Minister Amit Shah, pointed out
that better road infrastructure is necessary for the state
with difficult terrain and high mountains.

During the last couple of years, the Centre has
assisted the state in this direction but a lot more is to be
done for the improvement of infrastructure along the India-
China border.

“The state government is paying full attention to law
and order in the three districts of Tirap, Changlang and
Longding and four police stations of Namsai, Roing, Mahadevpur
and Sunpura which are under the Armed Forces Special Power Act
(AFSPA),” he said.

The state has recently got an officer of Major General
rank on deputation as the security advisor to the state, the
governor said.

“For internal security and law and order, the
government is strengthening the police set up but it needs the
assistance of the Centre for putting in place crime and
criminal tracking network and system in each district. Efforts
are underway to boost training, working efficiency and morale
of the state police force,” he said.

The governor highlighted the need for enhancing the
electricity power grid, potable water distribution system and
increasing the number of advanced landing grounds.

Brig (Retd) Mishra highlighted the need for funds to
construct foot suspension bridges at remote places to improve
the mobility of Army jawans and civilians.

He requested Shah, also the NEC chairman, to continue
providing necessary help for the development of Arunachal
Pradesh. PTI UPL
