Itanagar, Jan 20: The month-long Golden Jubilee celebration of Arunachal Pradesh got underway on Thursday at the picturesque Ziro valley in Lower Subansiri district from where the frontier state got the name ‘Arunachal Pradesh’ 50 years back.
The erstwhile NEFA (North East Frontier Agency) was named as Arunachal Pradesh and declared as Union Territory at Ziro, the headquarters of undivided Subansiri on 20th January 1972 by then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
Gracing the Golden Jubilee celebration of the State’s Foundation Day at Ziro, Arunachal Pradesh Governor Brig (Retd) Dr BD Mishra greeted the people on the special occasion and paid tribute to the forebears of the State who contributed to the progress and development of the State. Speaking on the occasion, the Governor called upon the people, particularly the youth to cooperate and partake in the developmental process of the State to take Arunachal Pradesh forward towards prosperity.
He further advised all Arunachalees to work with the spirit of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas, Sabka Prayas’ mantra given by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, maintaining transparency, accountability, probity, promptness, equal dispensation, audit and mid-course correction in all spheres of affairs.
The Governor said that good governance is the key to a Nation’s development and people’s progress. He asked the government officials to be accountable, have probity, act with promptness, make equal dispensation to one and all and constantly review their own course of work for improvement wherever necessary.
Cautioning the people about the rising number of COVID positive cases, the Governor appealed to them to wear facemasks, wash hands frequently, and follow social distancing by practicing ‘Do Gaj Ki Doori’ at public places and during all interactions.
Earlier, the Governor launched the Golden Jubilee media campaign on Arunachal Tourism. He also felicitated former Chief Ministers. Cultural presentation representing the Subansiri Basin was presented on the occasion along with the rendition of ‘Hamara Arunachal’ led by the state’s legendary singer Bengia Hemanta.
Chief Minister Pema Khandu, Union Minister of Law and Justice Kiren Rijiju, Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein, Speaker Pasang Dorjee Sona, members of the State Cabinet and State Legislative Assembly and MPs Tapir Gao (LS) and Nabam Rebia (RS) participated in the programme amongst others.
