Union minister of state for youth affairs and sports Kiren Rijiju on Saturday said that the BJP led central government has ensured better connectivity in far-flung areas of Arunachal Pradesh.

Roads are currently being constructed to connect the border areas of Galemo, Bidak, Maja and Taksing in the state.

Taking a jibe at Lok Sabha MP Rahul Gandhi, Rijiju said that the earlier Congress government’s policy was never to construct roads in border areas of the state.

“Instead of spreading lies Rahul Gandhi should know that earlier govt policy was not to make roads in border areas! After 70 years, @narendramodi govt has changed that policy. Now, roads & facilities are reaching to places like Galemo, Bidak, Maja, Taksing in Arunachal Pradesh,” Kiren Rijiju tweeted.
