ITANAGAR, June 9 - Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu has stressed the need to preserve the indigenous culture and identity that makes Arunachal �a unique and attractive place in the world�.

While pointing out that developed nations, especially western countries, are on the brink of losing their culture due to excessive pursuit of materialistic happiness, Khandu said they are now looking towards eastern civilisations that have still preserved their ancient ways of life, for peace and solace.

Arunachal Pradesh is blessed to have its indigenous culture intact, stated Khandu while addressing a gathering at the Donyi Polo Gangging (a prayer centre of believers of the Donyi-Polo sect) here today. The Chief Minister called upon the people to preserve their culture as �no outside people would shoulder such a responsibility�.

For preservation of the indigenous culture, the Chief Minister assured that the State Government would always support such efforts and provide funds for building a multi-storeyed cultural centre on the premises of the Gangging.

Earlier on his arrival, the Chief Minister performed the �taku tabat� ritual, which was followed by lighting of candles and offering of prayers to Donyi-Polo (Sun-Moon) for peace and prosperity of mankind.

Khandu also attended the prayer service at the Gangging along with State BJP president Tapir Gao, Health Minister Alo Libang, Power Minister Tamiyo Taga, Parliamentary Secretaries Gum Tayeng, Tatung Jamoh and Kaling Moyong, and MLAs Lombo Tayeng and Olom Panyang. After the participation in the opening prayer, �Kumdung Donyi Nom�, the Chief Minister performed the ritual of tying the sacred thread.

Meanwhile, in a separate development, the Chief Minister visited the Ramakrishna Mission Hospital here and met the Swamis looking after the hospital management. He also made enquiries about the facilities available and the present condition of the hospital.

Khandu assured support for construction of a new three-storeyed OPD building for the hospital with all facilities for essential and emergency services.

During the visit, the Chief Minister also met indoor patients and enquired about their health conditions.
