Itanagar

Arunachal Pradesh Chief minister Pema Khandu urged that the livelihood issues of the people should be taken into account when acquiring land so that a balance is achieved – keeping country’s security interest high while the interests of the community are secured.

The Chief Minister made the remark during a discussion with Manish Thakur, Joint Secretary (Works & Land), Ministry of Defence on land use for defence purposes, which was also attended by Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein and Chief Secretary Shakuntala Gamlin.

Chief Minister Pema Khandu has urged the Ministry of Defence to ensure that they grant fair compensation as required by the law to the local community while acquiring the land for defence purposes.

Further the Chief Minister appealed the defence ministry for dual use of the eight Advance Landing Grounds (ALG) at Ziro, Aalo, Mechukha, Pasighat, Walong, Vijaynagar and Tezu to be used both for civilian and defence purposes to enable effective connectivity, which would give a boost to tourism and economic development and could prove crucial during emergency medical cases and natural calamities.
