ITANAGAR, Apr 26: Chief Minister Pema Khandu today congratulated Licha Thosum, who is representing the state in the Femina Miss India 2017 contest, when she called on him at his office here this morning.

While congratulating Thosum for being shortlisted to contest in the beauty pageant representing Arunachal Pradesh, Khandu said that people of the state look up to her to draw attention of the world towards the state, which still remains unknown to many in the global arena, an official communiqué informed.

"Your participation in the national level event and the resulting exposure of Arunachal Pradesh in the global arena needs all out support from everyone in the state including the government," he said.
