Arunachal Pradesh governor BD Mishra on Saturday said Arunachal Pradesh should have its own cadre of central services like the IAS and IPS.

The governor said this during the 50th Conference of the State Governors which was held at Rashtrapati  Bhavan in New Delhi.

The conference was conducted by the Union home minister Amit Shah and presided over by President Ram Nath Kovind.

Mishra during the presentation explained the disadvantages of not having its own cadres of central services.

He said that in the absence of a separate cadre for the state the posting of central services officers to the State is done by the Arunachal Pradesh-Goa-Mizoram and Union Territory (AGMUT) cadre with controlling authority at Delhi.

“As the AGMUT cadres are controlled from Delhi, our State has no role in that. It, therefore, mostly happens that the central services officers do not have continuity and cannot build up long-term perspectives to enable them to give off their best in the service of the people of Arunachal Pradesh,” he said.

The Governor has also requested for an early formulation of Arunachal Pradesh Central Service Cadre.
