Itanagar: Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Nabam Tuki has requested Union Minister Nitin Gadkari to reconsider its decision to shift its Regional Office (RO) from
Itanagar to Tezpur in Assam.
In a letter to Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) Nitin Gadkari, Tuki said that this unilateral ndecision of the Ministry to move out the RO to Tezpur was
against the interests of the important ongoing road projects in the state, especially those under the ambitious Trans-Arunachal Highway Package.
"You would appreciate that it is imperative that a project like the Trans Arunachal Highways - notwithstanding its scale and importance - be effectively monitored regularly by a nodal
arm of the MoRTH," an official release quoting the letter stated today.
"The RO at Itanagar was operating with this mandate and taking care of the several issues related to the same in coordination with the implementing agencies of the state
government," the letter stated.
