Itanagar: A youth from the trouble-torn Tirap district of Arunachal Pradesh, Ranphoa Ngowa, is the only Arunachalee to clear the civil services examination 2014, conducted by UPSC.
Ngowa secured an all-India rank of 1,191.
Ngowa had earlier cracked IFoS with 82nd rank and CAPF (AC) 2013 with 331 rank and was absorbed in ITBP.
State Governor Jyoti Prashad Rajkhowa said that Ngowa had made all Arunachalees proud by his achievement. He expressed his hope that his success will motivate and inspire many more youths of the state.
