Arunachal is Indebted to Brave Soldiers Guarding its Borders: CM Khandu

Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu recently visited the Yangtse outpost along the Tibet, China -India border in Tawang district and addressed the jawans posted there.

The Yangtse border post was recently in the news over a reported face-off between the Indian Army and the Chinese PLA. The chief minister, on behalf of the countrymen, expressed deep gratitude to the Indian soldiers who challenged the reported ‘infiltration’ and forced the PLA to withdraw.

“We are safe because you guard our borders with utmost sincerity. People of India, especially of Arunachal Pradesh and particularly of Tawang district, will remain indebted to you all forever,” he said.

Interacting with the Indian Army personnel guarding the remote border outpost, he said that development of border areas is a priority of the state as well as the central government. He said that, despite difficult terrains and harsh climatic conditions, the pace of infrastructural development has accelerated in recent years.

 

The chief minister said that agencies like the BRO, the Indian Army, the ITBP, the state government departments, etc, had earlier independently submitted their requirements for infrastructure development to the central government as per their own needs.

“Since a couple of years, we have started to coordinate and consult with each of these agencies and collectively submit proposals for border area development, taking into consideration requirement of each agency. This way, it has become easier for the central government to decide and approve sanctions,” Khandu said.

Expressing pride over the presence of the Arunachal Scouts in the “China sector,” he said: “They being sons of the soil are well acclimatized to the altitude and weather and accustomed to local customs and way of life.”

The chief minister said that the central government has agreed in principle to raise four more companies of Arunachal Scouts soon.

Earlier, Khandu visited Yangkee-1 border outpost, which hosts the holy Buddhist site of 108 waterfalls, and Chumi Gyatse, and paid tributes at the Chhetri war memorial in Tullung La.
