He exhorted that the fruits of development must reach to all the sections of the society in equal and appropriate manner.
State Assembly Speaker Tenzing Norbu Thongdok, while congratulating the community for achieving such a platform, said that it is an important milestone towards their development. He urged them to put in concerted effort in establishing permanent �model� Puroik villages.
Representing the Chief Minister, Parliamentary Secretary for Home and Education Pani Taram conveyed the CM�s good wishes to the community and asked them to avail the maximum benefit from the facility.
