Arunachal: Pema Khandu felicitates Outstanding Alumni of Dera Natung Government College

Appreciating the presence of more than two hundred alumni of DNGC on the occasion, he urged them to contribute in development of the state as responsible members of ‘Team Arunachal’.

ITANAGAR-  Chief Minister Pema Khandu today asserted that his tenure as political head of the state has witnessed several ‘positives’ barring few ‘ugly instances’ citing the state public service commission paper leakage scam.

Speaking at the ‘Outstanding Alumni Meet cum Felicitation Programme & Workshop’ organized at Dera Natung Government College here this morning, Khandu said similar instances (paper leakage) might have happened in the past but it was during his tenure as chief minister that it came to light jolting the very foundation of the state’s highest recruitment body and the administration.

“It is but natural to blame the government and the chief minister for it. I accept it but at the same time it should be understood that this government is not taking the incident lying low. We have initiated severe and sincere action against all involved and investigations are in full swing. We are putting in place a system to avoid any recurrence of such misdemeanours,” he said.

He admitted that it is not easy to sit on the chief minister’s chair and facing criticism is part of the job. He, however, felt that criticism and blames are fair only if the government doesn’t react sincerely.

“From day one I have been stressing on the concept of ‘Team Arunachal’. The government or the chief minister alone cannot bring in any positive change if every member of the society do not take up the responsibility to be the change,” Khandu said.

Appreciating the presence of more than two hundred alumni of DNGC on the occasion, he urged them to contribute in development of the state as responsible members of ‘Team Arunachal’.

“I see all known faces amongst the alumni who are serving in various capacities. You all are intellectuals. You have to take the responsibility to make the change, be the change and become the change,” he appealed.

Lauding DNGC Principal Dr M Q Khan for conceptualizing and organizing the alumni meet of the college for the first time, Khandu said it was time for the former students, particularly those who are doing well in life today, to give back to their alma mater.

He suggested the event be made an yearly event to inspire the present lot of students.

While assuring all possible assistance to the college in terms of infrastructure and manpower, Khand urged the alumni to become the bridge between the college and the government and play the role of a catalyst in overall development of the college.

He informed that the government has already sanctioned infrastructural projects for the college including a new administrative block building, Anthropology department building, a hundred-bedded girls’ hostel, a children’s park with open gym, a sports’ complex equipped with four badminton courts and two Judo Karate Courts, two Cricket Practising Pitches, one rostrum and one more gallery, which are under construction.

Khandu said that, being the second oldest college of the state (after Jawaharlal Nehru College, Pasighat), DNGC deserves all the attention from the government and assured that it will get what it deserves.
