During a meeting with Moily at New Delhi, Tuki pointed out that the thrust on development projects covering major sectors like hydropower and roads has increased the fuel demands even in remote areas of the state and this has necessitated the increased allocation, official sources informed.
The Union Petroleum minister assured the Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister that he would look into the matter and push for some allocations at the earliest.
Moily also consented to attend the Vikas Rally to be organized at Itanagar on November 16 to highlight and introspect on the development achievements of the Congress government in the state.
The rally would also mark the commemoration of two years of Nabam Tuki in office. He had assumed office of the chief minister on November 1, 2011, sources said.
Moily would also lay the foundation of a Nursing College at Itanagar. The college would be established as part of the CSR activities of the PSUs under the Union petroleum ministry, sources added.
