During the interaction, Pema Khandu complimented the Assam Rifles jawans for their commitment and professionalism.

He lauded them for serving the nation and its people in such challenging conditions, especially in remote areas where the hilly terrain and unpredictable weather conditions makes life hard.

“Feels good to meet our Jawans on visit to border areas. Visited an #AssamRifles camp at #Vijaynagar and spent few memorable moments with them,” Pema Khandu tweeted.

The Assam Rifles jawans have been offering their services to people in Vijaynagar on numerous occasions.

Vijaynagar being the remotest point in Changlang district has an advanced landing ground that serves as the only point of communication for the residents.

Large transport planes and fighter jets use this landing ground.

Khandu while inaugurating a helipad in Gandhigram recently assured the people of providing motorable rods to Vijaynagar soon.
