ITANAGAR, Sep 15: The Civil Secretariat Complex on Tuesday was dotted with colourful ethnic and traditional dresses donned by the HoDs, officials and staffers which sent the message of “unity in diversity”. Earlier in a circular, Chief Secretary Naresh Kumar asked the employees to come to office wearing traditional attire on the 15th of every month to promote the "vocal for local" campaign.
Talking to this reporter, Director, Treasury and Accounts Techi Tedi who was also seen wearing a beautifully woven traditional coat welcomed the recommendations of the CS to wear traditional clothes at workplaces once in a month and said the move will not only help in preserving the state’s culture and traditions, but also promote creative ideas and help the local artisans and weavers financially. 
The same was echoed by another employee, K Doji, who opined that the step will help in retaining the tribal culture and individuality.
“Arunachal is a centre of diverse cultural practices and allowing employees to proudly wear their traditional attires in workplaces would go a long way in the promotion of our rich cultural heritage,” another employee from the Horticulture department added.
