Arunachal Governor Lt Gen K T Parnaik meeting Deputy CM Chowna Mein

Itanagar: Arunachal Pradesh Governor Lt Gen K T Parnaik on Wednesday asserted that flagship programmes of the central and state governments must reach targeted beneficiaries.

During a meeting with Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein at Raj Bhavan here, the governor said that proper digitisation of information, real-time monitoring and office automation should be prioritised at all levels of governance.

Mein, who called on the governor, highlighted the challenges of development in the interior and rural areas and the need to capitalise on the vibrancy of border villages by making them tourist destinations.

Parnaik made various suggestions and methods to achieve the same, an official communiqu said.

The governor, who interacted with government officials and villagers in remote areas during his recent tour of border areas, stressed the need to provide financial and technical assistance to people in those areas for reverse migration to their villages.

Parnaik also said that state government officials must reach out to the rural community.

A hand-holding approach must be adopted to motivate the agrarian communities to go for multiple cropping and horticultural ventures along with traditional farming, he said.
