Have a ‘Pan Arunachal’ views on development front.
Governor Brig (Retd) Dr B D Mishra on Thursday urged upon the State Govt officers to have a ‘pan Arunachal’ view of things while carrying out the developmental works in the State.
He further emphasized that initiatives by the officers must be ‘suo moto’ to any problem or challenge confronting the common citizens of the State.
The Governor, while discussing about developmental programmes and projects in a meeting he had with the senior State Govt officers at Raj Bhavan here, reiterated that “every paisa spent from the public fund on any programme or project must bring matching result for the development of the people of the State”.
The meeting also discussed the issues to be raised in the ensuing plenary meeting of the North Eastern Council (NEC) at Shillong on July 9 and 10 next.
The Governor also shared his concerns with the senior bureaucrats about alleged corrupt practices and absence of government officials from their offices, which is hampering the smooth functioning of the government offices.
Inviting suggestions from the officers to be taken up in the 67th Plenary of NEC, the Governor said that the State must make best use of the NE Forum to put forward the challenges of the people for its resolution by joint effort.
He also advised the officers to explore institutional mechanism to expedite the implementation of NEC sponsored projects. Issues related to roads and air connectivity, law and order, security, infrastructure, health and textbooks distribution also came up for discussion. Earlier, the State Chief Secretary Satya Gopal briefed the Governor on the matters pertaining to the NEC. Commissioners and Secretaries also attended the meeting.
