Governor Brig (Retd) BD Mishra on Tuesday emphasised reinforcing the security apparatus in Arunachal Pradesh to facilitate the developmental progress of the state.
“For development to take place, a sense of security and peace are pre-requisitions,” the governor said while calling for concerted efforts of all organisations concerned and better coordination amongst the security forces.
Mishra was addressing a high-level security meeting at Raj Bhavan here.
The governor stressed bringing back the misguided youth in Tirap, Longding and Changlang (TLC) region to the mainstream and providing a sustainable source of livelihood to them.
He suggested working out a constructive surrender policy for the same.
The governor also strongly advocated for the development of the border villages and remote areas to secure the frontiers.
He said that augmentation and growth of border areas will arrest the population’s migration to urban areas.
Participating in the discussion, the chief minister called for strengthening the goodwill amongst civil administration, local population, and security forces to expedite the development process in the state.
“The armed forces have been very supportive in the border villages, especially with regards to educational and social-economic development,” Khandu said.
Matters related to reinforcing the air defence mechanism in Arunachal Pradesh were also discussed in the meeting.
State legislative assembly speaker P D Sona, 4 Corps general officer commanding Lt General Ravin Khosla and others participated in the meeting.
