Arunachal Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein on Monday requested the Centre to help the State develop its border areas to prevent the migration of locals who act as a deterrence against "foreign misadventure".
Mr Mein, while virtually attending the pre-budget meeting of all States and Union Territories with Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, stressed the need to develop the border areas the State shares with China, Myanmar and Bhutan.
