Arunachal Guv BD Mishra bats for developing border villages, roads


Governor Brigadier (Retd) BD Mishra on Tuesday called for strengthening the security apparatus in Arunachal Pradesh to facilitate the state’s development progress.


Stressing on the joint efforts of all concerned agencies and better coordination between the security forces, the governor said that “a sense of security and peace is a prerequisite for development”.


Mishra was addressing a high-level security meeting at Raj Bhavan here.

The governor called for bringing the lost youth of the Tirap, Longding and Changlang (TLC) region back into the national mainstream and providing them with a sustainable source of livelihood.


He suggested a constructive surrender policy.

The governor also strongly advocated for the development of border villages and remote areas to secure the borders.


He said that increase and development in border areas would prevent population migration to urban areas.


Taking part in the discussion, the Chief Minister called for strengthening the goodwill between the civil administration, local population and security forces to accelerate the development process in the state.


“The armed forces have been very supportive of educational and socio-economic development, especially in the border villages,” Khandu said.


The meeting also discussed issues related to strengthening the air defense mechanism in Arunachal Pradesh.


The meeting was attended by State Legislative Assembly Speaker PD Sona, 4 Corps General Officer Commanding Lieutenant General Raveen Khosla and others.
