Khandu while terming the government employees as ‘backbone’ of the State said it is the duty of the government to take care of its employees.
“The State Government is ready to give some more benefit to the government employees in days to come depending upon the State exchequer, but at the same time they should also reciprocate and render their service sincerely,” the Chief Minister said.
Khandu appreciated the good work culture and teamwork being shown by the Tawang district administration by providing services to the interior villages through Sarkar Aapke Dwar camps. The Chief Minister further announced that to meet the accommodation problem of government employees in Tawang, the government is working on a housing complex for its staff.
