Referring to the state-run Apex Bank, Kaso credited late chief minister Dorjee Khandu for reviving the bank, and urged everyone to cooperate to improve the condition of the bank, warning that the situation would worsen the funds are not properly utilized.
Arunachal Pradesh State Rural Livelihood Mission Director Tabin Siga stressed the need for skill management by the stakeholders, the members of the cooperative societies and the board of directors, “so that they can teach other members by becoming master trainers for their organizations.”
APSCU chairman Sushil Nalo highlighted the problems and challenges faced by the cooperative union and the board of directors in carrying out several central and state flagship programmes and other schemes of the department due to paucity of fund.
