Itanagar, June 15: The DoNER Minister Jitendra Singh said that the Government of India is strongly on the path of peace and development in the North East region.

The minister, who is also the in-charge of Prime Minister's Office, was addressing media persons at Naharlagun Helipad during his hurried visit to the state Capital which lasted not more than two hours.
"In order to accomplish the optimum benefits of the development agenda of GoI, we must seek to sustain peace in the region. And also try to bring ground those who are not able to see the virtues of peace and development," he urged.

The minister should at least tour all the flood affected areas and the areas where recent torrential rain has caused havoc, news agency The Arunachal Times reported. 

Addressing bureaucrats and ministers only, that too in closed cabin, will not give him real picture of the state. The Union Minister must confer some more time for NGOs and other civil society members to discuss the grievances of the people and  to the know the ground reality, it said in a release.

Singh evaded question on the Centre's plan to deal with NSCN (K) and if the Centre is planning to sign a pact with it by saying that 'it's for the home ministry and other agencies to take a call on'.

Regarding allegations of fund mismanagement by the state government, DoNER Minister accepted that a complaint on it has been received and the follow up will be made known.

Meanwhile, Arunachal Civil Society (ACS) has expressed disappointment over the DoNER minister's short visit to the state Capital.
