ITANAGAR: Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu called on the Governor Brig (Retd) Dr B D Mishra at Raj Bhavan here, on Tuesday and discussed about developmental issues, education, law and order and ongoing projects in the state.
The Governor emphasised that all the developmental projects must be implemented within the time frame to ensure appropriate utilization of the fund allotted. He also called for optimum utilization of the very limited non-rainy season working period for meeting the various construction finishing dates. Mishra suggested Khandu to identify and promulgated key result areas to boost the developmental progress of the state.
"The traditional knowledge, youth power and potential natural resources in the fields of horticulture, fisheries, animal husbandry and forests have to be harnessed scientifically with a sustainable endeavour. The benefits of government programmes and the natural resources should promote the socio-economic development of the indigenous folds," he said.
The duo also discussed about the progress of the Greenfield Airport at Hollongi, near here, and reaffirmed their mission for completing the project by August 15 this year. The Governor stressed on proper monitoring of the functioning and performance of educational institutions in the state. He said that to set a strong foundation for the youth, the higher education sector at university level has to be prioritised, adequately funded, streamlined and validated. "Private universities must be made accountable to follow the University Grant Commission norms in all aspects," the Governor added.
Earlier, the Chief Minister briefed the governor about various people oriented programmes and projects taken up by the State government, particularly for those living in the far-flung remote villages.
