ITANAGAR, July 9: Chief Minister Pema Khandu expressed confidence in resolving the Chakma-Hajong issue within the next five years during the BJP’s state executive meeting held here on Tuesday.
The Chief Minister reiterated that the Chakma-Hajong issue remains one of the major challenges facing the state, and the BJP-led government is determined to address it within its current term. He criticized the previous Congress administrations for neglecting Arunachal Pradesh and the Northeastern region as a whole.
Khandu highlighted the immense support that the Northeastern states have received under Prime Minister Narendra Modi's leadership. He noted that development in all sectors, from road connectivity to border area development, has flourished under the BJP government.
The Chief Minister also emphasized the progress made under the BJP government in resolving the longstanding Assam-Arunachal boundary issues. According to Khandu, these efforts have brought the boundary dispute close to resolution.
Khandu further stated that Arunachal Pradesh has significant potential in hydropower. He claimed that if all 13 proposed hydropower projects are commissioned, they could generate at least 13,000 Mega Watts of power, which would significantly boost the state's revenue.
The Chief Minister's address underscored the BJP government's commitment to resolving critical issues and promoting development in Arunachal Pradesh, setting an ambitious agenda for the coming years.
