Itanagar, Feb 20 (PTI): Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu today asked the Centre to provide a special financial package to the State for the development of rural areas bordering with China, Myanmar and Bhutan in the backdrop of Chinese claim over the State's territory.

Khandu said as the State has an almost 1,200-km mountainous border with China, and over 540-km porous border with Myanmar and nearly 160-km border with Bhutan, the special package is an imperative.

Speaking during the Statehood Celebration Day here, the Chief Minister stressed the need for a two-pronged strategy for effective border management which includes infrastructure upgradation in the border areas and strengthening of the security apparatus along the actual boundary. "China has been consistently objecting to India's attempts at securing Asian Development Bank or World Bank loans for specific projects in the State," he said.
