ITANAGAR Jun 11: Chief Minister Pema Khandu   today called an interactive meeting with  all the Commissioners and Secretaries of the government of the state here at the Civil Secretariat and encouraged them to play active roles in  translating  the  set out  plans and ideas into reality.
While thanking and congratulating the officers led by Chief Secretary Satya Gopal for successful conduct of simultaneous elections, Khandu said that since the present government has emerged with a huge mandate, expectations of the people are also very high. Efficient law & order management, modernisation of police, health & education improvement, transparency in governance by curbing corruption and solving unemployment issues will be the priority areas, Khandu divulged.
He opined for working out ways and means to tap the rich and untapped resources of the state in spheres of minerals, forest produces, tourism, hydropower, agriculture and allied sectors to generate revenue and gainful employment. Khandu further requested the senior officers to work in creating a congenial atmosphere for ensuring flow of investments from outside. Reiterating that the government has decided to do away with SIDF and SADA from this year and discourage individual schemes, CM categorically directed the Head of Departments to finish the budget exercise in war footing so that all schemes which were earlier taken up in SADA/SIDF may be incorporated in the forthcoming budget.
He asked the Administrative Reforms Department to work on re-distribution and streamlining of manpower according to needs with stress on punctuality in office timing and regular DPCs in every six months.

Pointing out the poor performance of a few departments on state flagship programmes, he asked the concerned Commissioners and Secretaries to take measures and ensure cent per cent execution of state as well as central schemes.  

Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein pitched for a concerted effort in having proper coordination, discussion and planning for achieving the desired goals of development. “A sense of social involvement and responsibility is required to overcome the challenges” he said while acknowledging his association with many senior officers during his 25-year political career.  
Chief Secretary Satya Gopal assured that all constraints and challenges would be overcomed by collective efforts by the  Head of the Departments with ‘Team Arunachal’ spirit. He called upon his colleagues to ensure punctuality and 24x7 availability through   phones so that works are not  delayed.  
Many senior officers also participated in the discussion and shared their views and suggestions. CMO Press Release
