Arunachal Pradesh chief minister Pema Khandu has set out on a tour of the remote areas in Changlang district to inspect the development works underway there.

The chief minister had earlier promised to provide a motorable road to Vijaynagar, which is the remotest point in Changlang district along the Indo-Myanmar border.

He also spoke of providing a motorable road to Tali, the headquarters of Kra Daadi district.

For this, he toured the 157km road from Miao-Vijaynagar on Thursday.

At present, the hilly terrain in Vijaynagar can be reached only by air, while there is still no proper motorable road that causes immense problems for residents there.

Vijaynagar has an advanced landing ground where fighter jets and large transport planes land.

The Indian Air Force and Indian Army had upgraded this landing ground in 2019.

“Today begins my journey of 157km Miao-Vijaynagar road (Myanmar border) on foot & car. I have promised people of Arunachal that motorable road will reach Vijaynagar by March 2022. Inspected the construction of RCC bridge over Mpen river. Ensuring work is being expedited on ground,” Pema Khandu tweeted.
