‘Expedite EDI construction work’
ITANAGAR, Jun 25: The All Arunachal Tourism Student’s Union has urged the industries minister to direct the executing agency to expedite the construction of the Entrepreneur Development Institute (EDI) in Jote.
In a representation to the minister, the union on Thursday stated that though the construction work for the EDI began in 2012, the project has been facing delays “due to changes in scope of work and irregular funding.”
