GANGTE- “We are lucky to get a Prime Minister like Narendra Modi. His attachment with the North East and particularly Arunachal Pradesh has ushered in unprecedented development in the last eight years, said Chief Minister Pema Khandu speaking at a public meeting at Gangte in Kra-Daadi district today.
He pointed that until a couple of years ago, Gangte circle headquarter was unconnected by road.

“It was only after Balo Raja became the local legislator of the area and with the blessings of the Prime Minister, we could today reach Gangte travelling by road,” he said.
Khandu assured that all unconnected villages will be connected by road under PMGSY and wherever it is not feasible, roads will be constructed under the state government’s Chief Minister’s Comprehensive Road Network program.

Visiting the Gangte view point overlooking Tali circle and the confluence of Kurung and Kumey rivers, the Chief Minster observed that it could be developed into a tourist attraction point. He assured that he will take the matter on priority and urged the local MLA to hire a competent and reputed consultant to design and plan the project. He said, depending only on departmental officials will not suffice.
Referring to the dilapidated and old Pha bridge that connects Gangte circle with Kamle district, Khandu assured funds for construction of a permanent RCC bridge in its place.
