The Prime Minister also hailed Arunachal Pradesh as one of the most peaceful States of the country and commended the simplicity of its people.

During the discussion, Khandu informed the PM that the present State Government has inherited huge liabilities of previous years. He said the situation has been further aggravated by the fact that several schemes of the Government of India now stand delinked, the burden of whose implementation has fallen upon the present State Government.

Citing that the Centre has accepted the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission, which now needs to be implemented in the State, Khandu said this would add an additional annual burden to the State.

�I can assure you that we are committed to providing transparent and clean governance which would ensure that public money is judiciously spent,� Khandu told the PM.

Discussing various issues confronting the State, the Chief Minister submitted a detailed memorandum to the Prime Minister inviting attention to various developmental aspects of the State and the coordinated support required from the Central Government.
