Arunachal Pradesh Governor BD Mishra on Tuesday said for development, the most important aspects are road and IT communications.
Governor Mishra said while addressing a public meeting at Palin in Kra Daadi on Tuesday.
He is on a four-day tour by road in the two districts of Arunachal Pradesh – Kra Daadi and Kurung Kumey.
In his speech, the Governor also said it the responsibility of every citizen to facilitate construction of roads.
Citing the recent first commercial flight to Pasighat, the Governor said that land compensation should not be a hurdle in the developmental process.
He advised that the people must explore ways to gift the land and if at all required, it should be reasonable. He appealed to the people for their cooperation in the land compensation issue.
The Governor also said that there are a large number of developmental schemes, programmes and projects which are in various stages of implementation.
“These programmes will be beneficial for the people, if these are implemented with transparency, accountability, continuity, review and audit and if required midterm corrections,” he said.
The Governor appealed to the people to be partners in the developmental process by ensuring that the government programmes are implemented honestly and vigorously. “Our efforts must to see that development reaches the last village of the State,” added Mishra.
“The programmes implemented today must be beneficial to the present and future generations,” the Governor underscored.
Emphasizing that the health and education sectors be given top priority, the Governor requested the people representatives in the State Legislative Assembly to contribute in these sectors with MLALAD funds, particularly for providing medical equipment and washrooms for girls in schools.
He also expressed his concern over the tendency of soft posting by teachers and doctors.
Informing about Army recruitment, the Governor said that the people of Arunachal Pradesh are the ‘sentinel of the nation’. He requested the Gaon Burhas, Panchayat leaders, elders and government officials to motivate and prepare the youth to join Indian Army.
Stating that 60 per cent of the State’s population is farmers, the Governor appealed to the agrarian community to be progressive, innovative and experiment new crops, better crops and cash crops. He also emphasized on agricultural entrepreneurship.
The Governor asked the security personnel and agencies to guarantee safety and security of the fairer gender. Every citizen has to shoulder responsibility to ensure that there is no misdemeanor against our daughters, sisters and mothers, he added.
Local MLA Takam Pario, Tali MLA Er. Markio Tado, Kra Daadi Deputy Commissioner Pige Ligu and Rido Meena, Zilla Parishad chairperson, also spoke on the occasion.
They expressed their gratitude to the Governor for the visit, which is the first visit by a Governor after Kra Daadi became district in 2015 and that too by road.
