Responding to questions on the shortage of subject teachers and the need for a regular vice chancellor and teaching staff in the Arunachal University in Pasighat, and on the dilapidated road from Naharlagun to Banderdewa, Khandu said that the matter of shortage of subject teachers, “which is a serious concern in the education sector, is being addressed.”

“Likewise, the need for a regular vice chancellor and teaching staff in the Arunachal University in Pasighat has also been addressed by the state government. Maybe the technical aspects for the recruitment of staff and VC are in process,” he said, adding that the construction of the road from Naharlagun to Banderdewa “is in process, which was delayed due to the recent monsoon rainfall.”

Surya on his part said, “Basically, the rise of the party in the country, its history, and the approach to make further growth in the state was discussed. Also, the development works under the BJP government were imparted to the party workers.” he said.

Natung urged the party workers to “achieve the party’s goals by reaching to the grassroots levels.” He also highlighted various programmes and projects initiated by the Khandu-led government for the welfare and growth of the state’s youths.
