Nabam Tuki, President APCC in his speech said that on this day in 1991, we lost our great leader Rajiv Gandhi. He was a visionary leader of the masses who fought against terrorism and violence as he felt that terrorism is the root cause of corruption and communal harmony.
He was committed to the cause of people, the nation, the region and the world at large. His concern for the up-liftment of the common man is well reflected in the measures he initiated to ensure equitable distribution of the fruits of development.
He pursued the agenda of democratic decentralization by introducing Panchayati Raj, Lok Adalats and lowering the voting age. It was under his leadership that India ushered into the age of computer and telecom revolution with a modern and scientific outlook.
He has special love and affection for the people of Arunachal Pradesh and the status of statehood was the gift of Rajiv ji.
