Itanagar: Arunachal Pradesh Governor Gen

Sibi won two gold medals while Tagru won a bronze in

"You have made every Arunachalee proud," the Governor

said Sibi and Tagru have risen to the expectations of the
people, displaying the true potential of the Arunachalee

potential, but we just need direction and of course exposure,"
