Itanagar: Arunachal Pradesh on Monday bid an emotional farewell to the outgoing Governor Gen JJ Singh and his wife Anupama in Itanagar.

Hundreds of people including school children led by Chief Minister Nabam Tuki gathered at Raj Bhavan helipad to see off the Governor and his wife.

In a farewell function on Sunday evening, Gen Singh expressed gratitude to the people and the state government.

"Arunachal mein jiska dil lag jata hai woh wapis jana nahi chahta (One who likes Arunachal never wants go), but every good things come to an end. We are indebted to Arunachal and Arunachalees and will keep coming back to be part of the state’s prosperity waiting in the wings," he had said.

The chief minister had said no other Governor had done so much for the state and for that, Arunachalees had fondly called him the 'People’s Governor'.

Speaker Wangling Lowangdong equally lauded Singh for his extraordinary capability.
