APCC urges govt to reduce fuel prices

ITANAGAR, Sep 28: The Arunachal Pradesh Congress committee (APCC) has urged the state government to immediately work out modalities for reducing the fuel prices in the greater interest of the state’s people.
Addressing an ‘interaction and felicitation programme’ of Congress workers and party leaders of Kra Daadi district and the Tali assembly constituency here on Friday, APCC president Takam Sanjoy said some states of the country have adopted measures to contain the prices of fuel by reducing taxes.
“The Arunachal government should also explore possibilities as rising fuel prices are severely affecting the citizens of the state,” he said.
Sanjoy also said the Congress was “becoming stronger than before after two MLAs from the PPA merged into the Congress.”
The Congress’ vision is to develop the state and the country with a secular agenda, he said.
Tali MLA Markio Tado said rejoining the Congress was a homecoming for him as he had won the seat in 2014 on an INC ticket.
Among others, APYC president Geli Ete, Tali BCC president Songio Taba, Kra Daadi DCC vice-president Tamuk Tadi, BMCC president Regio Yaging, and former ZPM Tatung Talin addressed the gathering.
