ITANAGAR, July 9 - Arunachal Pradesh Governor Brig (Dr) BD Mishra (Retd) has called upon Centre for taking a concrete action to bring peace and development in the insurgency-affected eastern part of the State.

Expressing concern over the insurgency activities in eastern Arunachal districts of Tirap, Changlang and Longding (TCL), Mishra called for a concrete action to bring peace and development in the region.

The Governor made the plea while taking part in the opening day of two-day 67th plenary session of North Eastern Council (NEC) at Shillong on Monday.

Highlighting the potentials and challenges of the frontier State of Arunachal Pradesh, the Governor also requested Ministry of Home Affairs, DoNER and NEC to strengthen the infrastructure at border check posts to promote border trade with Myanmar, Bhutan and China.

The Governor said that the Border Area Development Programme in the State is a national necessity for security and to check thinning out of population.

He also put forward the State�s connectivity issues including implementation of 1,500-km Trans-Arunachal Highway, Arunachal Frontier Highway and East-West Corridor. He emphasised that Civil Aviation Ministry and DoNER must fund the much-awaited Itanagar Greenfield airport project at the earliest.

The Governor further requested the NEC and DoNER Ministry for their assistance and participation in tourism, skill development, healthcare and education sectors.

Stating that Arunachal Pradesh has a great potential in sports and music and there is a need for avenues to channelise the youth energies in order to wean them from going the drug and gun way, the Governor requested the NEC to provide fund for establishing five state-of-the-art football institutes and five music institutes in the State.

The Governor further urged the NEC to take up major projects under North Eastern Region Community Resources Management Project (NERCORMP), while stating that there is a need to accelerate the pace of socio-economic development of TCL districts for which the State Govt has submitted a plan of Rs 1,524 crore to the MHA.
