Recognize selfless service of Nabam Runghi: Arunachal Pradesh Tour Operators Association (APTOA)
ITANAGAR: The Arunachal Pradesh Tour Operators Association (APTOA) has appealed the State government to recognize the selfless service of Nabam Runghi, one of the first generation leaders, social reformer and a architect of Itanagar, who died at his private residence on Sunday last.
The APTOA has requested the State government to name a few governmental institutions or establishments after him in recognition to his selfless service to the people of the state. “He was the first NEFA Councilor and during his tenure, he played pivotal role in ‘shaping’ Arunachal Pradesh. He was the man behind establishing Itanagar as capital of Arunachal. But sad part is that he doesn’t possess a single piece of land in Itanagar,” the association said. The APTOA prayed for eternal peace of the departed soul and to give courage to the bereaved family to overcome the trauma. Runghi was laid to rest with full state honour on Tuesday. The cremation ceremony was attended by Chief Minister Pema Khandu, Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein, UD Minister Nabam Rebia, and former CM Nabam Tuki among others.
