Presently, Aruchal Pradesh comes under the All India Services (AIS) grouping of Aruchal, Goa, Mizoram and other Union Territories (AGMUT). The State Assembly on October 18 last year, adopted a resolution to urge the NDA government to form a separate cadre of IAS, IPS and IFS for the northeastern States, like most other States.
The Chief Minister also urged the Prime Minister to immediately clear the Green Field Airport project at Hollongi, near here which has been pending since last several years. On infrastructure development, Khandu requested the Centre to sanction fund through DoNER and NEC for creating new infrastructure and other official buildings that were constructed several decades back.
Referring to the abundant tural resources in the State, Khandu said: “Due to lack of proper policy of the previous government at the Centre, we are uble to tap the resources. However, with NDA coming to power, the Prime Minister had changed the dymics of New Delhi towards Northeast.”
