Arunachal Pradesh chief minister Pema Khandu on August 29 claimed that the state is one of the best performing states in the Northeast in implementation of many flagship schemes of the central government.

Speaking at the BJP legislature party meet in Itanagar, the chief minister said that the state government achieved the distinction in implementation of several schemes like Saubhagya, Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Rural and Urban), wellness centre, soil health card and Ayushman Bharat.

“The state’s performance are not only judged based on state government’s report but also through centre’s own independent reports,” Khandu said highlighting the outcome of the recently-held chief minister’s conference of all BJP-ruled states in New Delhi.

Khandu said that in many other important sectors as well, Arunachal’s performance is far ahead than many states in mainland India.

“Arunachal today has good reputation and respect in the eyes of centre,” said Khandu and stressed on the importance of such interactive meetings, which helps in providing motivation and guiding principles to perform better.

He said BJP being a party with difference, Arunachal should follow party-based politics instead of leader-based politics. “I would be more happy if legislators and party workers rely more and draw motivation from party ideology and principles rather on my leadership.”

To better connect with the people, Khandu urged the legislators to take active part during Jan Sunwai Sammelan, a platform where all the govt departments and administration holds regular meetings with people for redress of grievances and to provide services. He said the outcomes of Jan Sunwai Sammelan organized in different districts over the last one month has been positive.

He also informed that the issue of Greenfield airport for state capital and smart village movement has been receiving positive support from prime minister himself.
