During the meeting, the CS touched upon two very important issues which are of primary concern of the State Government. He expressed his concern over the growing flow of illicit money with regard to narcotics in India and which has made a way to the frontier state also in particular.
“The problem of narcotics money coming to Arunachal Pradesh has become very acute now. It will have a long term negative impact on the youth of the North Eastern region, including Arunachal Pradesh,” he said.
Kumar asked the regulatory mechanism to help the state Government in identifying such “bad money” and its circulation to save the society at large.
Secondly, the CS informed the forum that the Centre is very keen that various social welfare related services reach directly to the beneficiaries.
He sought the help of the RBI and its other regulatory agencies to reach the last mile beneficiary through their financial and non-financial sector.
