The mortal remains of Nabam Runghi was laid to rest at Yupia, with full state honour on Tuesday.
The Arunachal Pradesh Tour Operators Association (APTOA) extend deep anguish in the sudden demise of Late Nabam Runghi, one of the first generation leaders, social reformer and pious Christian leader. He was the first Agency Councillor of NEFA days and during his tenure played pivotal role in shaping Arunachal Pradesh. He was the main leader in establishing the Itanagar capital of Arunachal. But sad part is that he doesn’t posses a single piece of land in Itanagar.
The APTOA appeal the state government to recognise his selfless service by naming some government institution or establishment under his name to honour and give respect to the great man. APTOA also pray to the Almighty God to give comfort to the bereaved family members and may the great departed soul of Lt Nabam Runghi Rest in Eternal Peace.
