Arunachal Chief Minister Pema Khandu, who launched Arunachal Rising Campaign at Mebo in East Siang district on the occasion, claimed that his government has brought in a new trend of development to the frontier state during last two years.
Khandu said his government is decentralizing the planning processes in a phase wise manner while it accepts feedback from various community organisations in preparing the state’s financial budget.
“The DCs are given power to constitute committee to prepare need-based schemes observing the challenges and opportunities of their area,” said Chief Minister Khandu while adding that governing the state with various tribal groups with diversified cultures and religious practices is a very tough task.
