Arunachal blames Centre for its apathy to LE policy
Itanagar: Arunachal Pradesh on Thursday raised
concern over Centre`s alleged apathy in implementing the `Look
East` policy which, if in force, would boost development in
the north eastern region.
"The North-East is lagging behind other regions of the
country because of the failure of the Centre to implement the
Look East Policy in real terms," Public Health Engineering
Department (PHED) Minister, Chowna Mein told the 13th annual
conference of the North East Region Commonwealth Parliamentary
Association (NERCPA) here.
It was urgent to reopen border trade with neighbouring
countries which would entirely change the economy of the
region, he said.
Insincere effort to develop the poor connectivity
between north eastern region and south eastern Asia underlined
the short sightedness of the policy makers since it hindered
the development of the region, he said.
Advocating reopening the Stilwell Road connecting
North-East with SE Asian countries, Mein said that the vital
road should be a priority for India for implementation of the
Look East policy undertaken in 1991.
