"The GoAP reached a significant milestone with 27% more GST income collected than the previous year. Thank you for ensuring that the GST was implemented effectively throughout the state, Department of Tax and Excise.

After years of waiting by the residents, Tali, the last disconnected administrative centre and the last disconnected Assembly constituency of Arunachal Pradesh has now been connected by road for the first time since India's independence.
Pema Khandu, the chief minister of Arunachal Pradesh, became the first chief minister to travel by road to Tali in the Kra Daadi district.
Khandu had promised the locals during his last helicopter visit in 2017 that his subsequent visit would be by road; this promise was kept on the auspicious occasion of Nyokum.
“I'm honoured to have been present for this historic and significant event, which saw the Tali ADC headquarters finally connected to the road system. Even though it was founded in 1957, Tali's administrative centre never had a road connection. We worked in mission mode to finish the 51-kilometer Yangte-Tali road as soon as possible," he remarked while taking part in the 45th Nyokum Yullo celebrations in this city.
