Arunachal Guv for comprehensive surveillance of border areas
Arunachal Governor K T Parnaik

Itanagar: Arunachal Pradesh Governor Lt Gen K T Parnaik has emphasised on the need for comprehensive surveillance of border areas in the state and coordination among the intelligence agencies, an official said.

During a meeting with Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday, the governor stressed on the security of borders and the need for collaborative efforts between forces and villagers living near international boundaries.

Parnaik is on an official visit to New Delhi.

He apprised the defence minister of the need for providing additional Central Armed Police Forces to guard the border as well as deter smuggling of narcotics in the state, a Raj Bhavan official said on Thursday.

The governor also stressed on reactivation of the advanced landing ground (ALG) at Alinye in Dibang Valley district and the construction of another ALG at Dirang in West Kameng, which, he said, would go a long way in optimising operational efficiency and facilitating tourism in the state.

Parnaik also met Union Minister of State for Civil Aviation General V K Singh and deliberated upon the construction of new airstrips and infrastructure at ALGs to augment flight services in the state.
