He lauded the tourism department and Honda Motorcycles for organizing the motorcycle rally.
“I am thankful to the ministry of tourism, government of India and the department of tourism, government of Arunachal Pradesh for sponsoring the motorbike rally to eastern Arunachal under ‘Dekho apna desh’ as this part of the state is little known to the tourists and needs little more exposure and promotion,” said Mein.
