ITANAGAR, 2 Jan: Chief Minister Pema Khandu called on Governor BD Mishra at the Raj Bhavan here on Saturday and the two discussed developmental projects, state and central government flagship programmes and vital projects of the state.

The governor shared his concern over the time-bound construction of the Miao-Vijaynagar road, which is not progressing satisfactorily. They also discussed speeding up projects which are being slowed down due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Commending the CM for his “public commitment for implementation of the NH 415 road project of Itanagar,” the governor called for “stringent measures in maintaining cleanliness in the capital city.”

Mishra suggested to the CM to prepare a concrete plan for smooth conduct of the Covid-19 vaccination programme. As per the standard operating procedure, every frontline worker must be given first preference.
