ITANAGAR, Feb 23 - As the multi-ethnic, multi-tribal State abounds in rich cultural heritage, Arunachal Pradesh Governor JP Rajkhowa has suggested for setting up of �cultural cum heritage centres� � at least one in every district of the state, reflecting the unique inheritance of the tribal people in all their true perspectives.
The Governor made this suggestion when a delegation of Indigenous Faith and Cultural Society of Arunachal Pradesh (IFCSAP) led by its president Dr Ligu Tacho met him at Raj Bhavan here today to discuss matters relating to infrastructure development for preservation, promotion and propagation of indigenous faith, culture and traditions in the state.
He said that these centres should be utilised for documentation, training and promotion of cultural heritage. He also emphasised on promotion of goodwill and oneness amongst the people of the state. Exuding hope that the state government will respond positively, the Governor advised the IFCSAP to take up the issue with the government.
Earlier, IFCSAP president Dr Tacho and vice president (Hq) Gichik Taaza briefed the Governor on the aims and objectives of the IFCSAP. Claiming that due to lack of preachers, books and prayer halls, the followers of indigenous faith is diminishing, for which they submitted a memorandum for construction of cultural halls in the state. The IFCSAP delegation expressed gratitude to the Governor for his �exemplary� governance during the President�s Rule.
