ITANAGAR, Nov 19 - Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu called on Governor Brig (Dr) BD Mishra (retd) at the Raj Bhavan here today to review the ongoing development projects and programmes of the State.
A release from the Raj Bhavan said the Governor called for greater efficiency and effectiveness in conducting the secretariat works. He also stressed the need of filling up vacancies in the State services. The Governor said that the Arunachal Pradesh Public Service Commission must work tirelessly to conduct examinations for all State-level grades and vacancies flawlessly.
The Governor, while calling for expediting the road projects, also emphasised the need of protecting the Namdapha Tiger Reserve.
Mishra, who is going to attend the forthcoming conference of Governors at the invitation of the President, also discussed issues that can be taken up in the meet and also in the Governor’s meetings with Union ministers.
He reiterated his call for timely allocation of funds for development works to the departments concerned to avoid the rush for release of funds at the close of the financial year.
Suggesting a strong mechanism to prevent leakage or misutilisation of allocated public money, the Governor said the Public Accounts Committee must have regular meetings with the departments and bring in marked improvement in the situation.
