Raise Against Militancy And Encroachment, Says Arunachal Pradesh Governor

Arunachal Pradesh Governor Brig (Retd) Dr B D Mishra has urged the people of Tirap, Changlang and Longding districts to "rise against militancy" and act as a social pressure group against the "scourge" of extortion unleashed by the UG groups in the TCL region.The Governor, who is on a three-day tour to the District, called upon the Gaon Burah and the people in general to contribute to the development process of the State, with a sense. He said that there must be concerted effort in ensuring proper implementation of developmental programmes, projects and schemes. It can only happen if the people ensure that there is transparency, accountability, probity, promptness, equal dispensation, audit and mid course correction in the developmental process.Further expressing his concern over rampant encroachment of Govt land, the Governor said, “Encroachment of forest, schools and government land has become a menace throughout the State. It benefits a few individuals but is a curse for the rest of the people. It adversely affects the flora and fauna and the schools and colleges where encroachment by the land grabbers is very common,” he said and called for social opposition against all kinds of encroachments.
