ITANAGAR, June 11 - Arunachal Pradesh Governor JP Rajkhowa on Friday suggested for a �Heritage Village� in the State on the lines of Mawphlang village of Meghalaya, where Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently visited.
Interacting with a delegation of Galo Welfare Society (GWS) led by its president Mitum Boje at Raj Bhawan here, Rajkhowa said the village would not only preserve and promote cultural richness of the State, but also attract tourists in large numbers, an official release said.
The GWS delegation submitted a 12-point memorandum to the Governor on several issues including inter-district road connectivity, creation of new districts and a Tribal Heritage Complex.
The Governor said the elected representatives also must take up the connectivity issue at all levels.
While commending the proposal for ITI in the foothills of West and East Siang districts, the Governor reiterated that there must be an ITI in every district, either government funded or in PPP model, for skill development in order to augment avenues for employment generation, the release added. � PTI
