Further he wrote “if the railway-line is extended from Pasighat to Rum (Assam) via Tezu and Namsai, it will be easier for movement of armed /defense forces as I consider safety and security of our Country is first”.
At the end of his latter Ering requested Union minister of Railways to take up the construction and railway infrastructure development in Arunachal Pradesh especially in the plain areas of Pasighat on priority so that we can compete in development with our neighbourhood. It will ensure safety and security of the citizens of Arunachal Pradesh.
