Itanagar: Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu felt that taking politics very seriously in every sphere of life hampers the developmental process.
He, therefore, appealed to the people to indulge in ‘politics’ once only in five years and not all through the five years.
“I have seen that people, especially of the Abotani belt, take politics very seriously and view life and development only from a political angle, which hampers development,” Khandu observed, an official communique from the CMO said.
He asserted that every five years people have the chance to elect whomsoever they want, therefore there is no point playing politics all through the five years.
“If people want they will bring back my government based on our performance but if they don’t want us they will elect someone else. So why keep politics on our mind all the time and instead concentrate on development of the state?” he wondered.
Khandu further stressed that politics should be based on ‘performance’ and not on ‘money culture’. He was speaking at the dedication ceremony of the newly-established Tribal Cultural Centre at Mwya village under Deed circle of Lower Subansiri district on Friday.
Also present on the occasion were state Home Minister Bamang Felix, Education Minister Taba Tedir, MLAs B R Wahge and Zingnu Namchoom, Indigenous Faith and Cultural Society of Arunachal Pradesh (IFCSAP) president Katung Wahge, Arunachal Indigenous Tribes Forum (AITF) president BengiaTolum, government officials and public leaders of the area, the communique added.
