Itagar, Oct 20: The Aruchal Pradesh Assembly on Wednesday adopted a government resolution to urge the Centre to take immediate steps for creation of a separate cadre of IAS, IPS and IFS for the State.
Bringing the resolution, Chief Minister Pema Khandu said, “After 30 years of attaining statehood, it’s time we get separate cadres so that development percolates down to all parts of the State in real sense.” He said every State has their own cadres except Aruchal which has cadres under AGMUT (Aruchal, Goa, Mizoram and other Union Territories).
“Because of the absence of separate cadres, the Central schemes cannot be implemented and executed properly as officers from AGMUT come to the State for a short period and are not able to understand the tribal culture and sentiments,” he said. He added that the Joint Cadre Authority of the Union Home Ministry has fixed a prelimiry discussion in New Delhi on November 3 next.
