First time in 73 years of India's independence, a govt bus has reached #Anini #DibangValley near Indo-Tibet (China) border. A Roing-Anini(233km) bus service was flagged off today as 2-lane highway reaches remote border district."
Dibang Valley is located on the bank of river Dibang and due to the close proximity of the valley with the Indo-China border there is a strong Chinese influence.
