    No compromise on Arunachal's territorial integrity: Khandu

    NAMSAI, Nov 17:  The National Press Day(NPD)  was celebrated at Namsai with tributes to Late Taro Chatung and V Ravindran Nair. 
    The event was organised by Arunachal Press Club in collaboration with Directorate of Information and Public Relation supported by the Namsai district administration.
    Chief Minister Pema Khandu on Saturday urged the state’s media community to organise an event to discuss if panchayat polls in the state could be fought on non-party basis, saying that would enhance the possibility of election of "genuine leaders."
    Addressing journalists on the occasion of the National Press Day here, he also called upon them to play the role of a watchdog to root out corruption.
    "If elections are held on party line, many genuine candidates may not get tickets as parties have their own dynamics. But if it is fought not on party basis, people could elect a genuine leader who can lead society," Khandu said.
    The chief minister said an event could be organised by media houses where all stakeholders would discuss the issue.
