Arunachal at the top in implementing schemes in the NE: Pema

ITANAGAR, Aug 29: Chief Minister Pema Khandu claimed that Arunachal Pradesh is the number one performing state in the North East in implementing important central government flagship schemes.
Speaking at the BJP legislature party meet here, the chief minister said the state government achieved the distinction in implementation of Saubhagya, Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Rural and Urban), wellness centre, soil health card and Ayushman Bharat.
“State performances are not only judged based on state government’s report, but also through centre’s own independent reports,” Pema said highlighting the outcome of the recently held chief minister’s conference of all BJP-ruled states in New Delhi, which was chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
He also claimed that Arunachal’s performance in many other important sectors is far ahead than many states in mainland India as well.
“Arunachal today has good reputation and respect in the eyes of centre,” said Pema and stressed on the importance of such interactive meetings, which helps in providing motivation and guiding principles to perform better.
To better connect with the people, the chief minister urged the legislators to take active part during Jan Sunwai Sammelan, a platform where all the government departments and administration hold regular meetings with people for redress of grievances and to provide services.
He said the outcomes of Jan Sunwai Sammelan organized in different districts over the last one month have been positive, with 15,000 beneficiaries added.
Further the CM informed that the issue of greenfield airport for state capital and smart village movement has been receiving positive support from the prime minister himself. (CMO)
