Itanagar: AICC general Secretary Rahul Gandhi on Monday advocated that every single person of the country must be involved in governance so that the country moves ahead.

"If we don’t involve people of all walks of life, especially the backward class in the governance, our nation will not move ahead," Gandhi said while addressing a massive gathering on the penultimate day of the five-day Tawang Festival at Tawang.

He informed the people about the national flagship programmes like MGNREGA ans Sarva Shikshya Abhiyan (SSA) which offer enough opportunities to everyone in the country better employment and livelihood.

Asserting that special attention is being by the Government of India to Arunachal Pradesh, he said the PM’s package provided to the state is exceptional and no other state in India had received such a huge package in terms of funds.

"This clearly proves the keen interest of the Centre to see Arunachal at par with other developed states," Gandhi pointed out.

He expressed optimism that with implementation of the PM's package Arunachal will see a new light of development with proper air, railway and road connectivity.

Marvelling at the dance performances by various tribes and sub-tribes of the state, the Gandhi scion commented that "we are different flowers of the same bouquet different in culture yet same in spirit."

Recalling the Nehru-Gandhi contributions in shaping the destiny of Arunachal, Chief Minister Nabam Tuki informed him that the Central government’s developmental package is being properly implemented in construction of a four-lane road to connect the state capital, the Trans-Arunachal Highway, the railway line to Itanagar and greenfield airport.
