Itanagar: Arunachal Pradesh Governor Brig (Retd) B D Mishra met Union Law minister Kiren Rijiju in the national capital on Saturday during which he advocated establishing a full-fledged High Court in the state.
The Governor said establishing the court in Arunachal Pradesh will be highly beneficial for easy access to justice, particularly for the poor and the marginalized segment people.
A full-fledged High Court within the state will facilitate a less expensive reach to justice for one and all, he said.
The Governor also impressed upon the Union minister to help Arunachal in developing all-weather road communication for speedy progress of the state.
“Along with the Trans Arunachal Highway, there is, in Arunachal Pradesh, a need for a road to cover the border areas and another road to facilitate the industrial growth in the foothill areas,” he said.
Mishra emphasized that the proposed ‘Frontier Highway’ and the ‘Industrial Corridor’ must be taken up for completion in an expeditious timeframe.
“The ‘Frontier Highway’ must run close to the Line of Actual Control, connecting Dirang-Tawang road, Nafra, Lada, Bameng, Chayang Tajo, Sarli, Damin, Parsi Parlo, Tali, Taliha, Siyum, Mechuka, Tato, Payum, Tuting, Singa, Dibang Valley and Anjaw Districts onwards up to Vijaynagar. This highway will provide the much-needed strategic connectivity to the higher reaches of the state and facilitate faster movement of troops during any emergency,” he said.
The governor said it will also give to the local population the very much-needed convenience of movement.
With good roads, the availability of amenities in the border areas will certainly enhance the continuity of the stay of the people in those areas. The migration of the people from border areas to city centers will be checked to a great extent, he said.
The governor further said that there is a visible wave of entrepreneurship in agriculture and allied sectors in Arunachal Pradesh.
The proposed two-lane East-West Industrial and Highway Corridor from Bhairabkunda in West Kameng district, at the tri-junction of Bhutan, Arunachal Pradesh and Assam, to Ruksin in the East Siang district will be a boon for the agriculture sector entrepreneurs and progressive farmers, Mishra said. It will usher-in the much welcome socio-economic progress throughout the state, he added.
The governor underscored that highway projects will bring deserved employment for the youths of the state and will motivate the people towards self-employment and ‘Start Up’.
The Governor also shared with Rijiju his points of discussion that he had with Union finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Friday.
