On his visit to Walong in Anjaw district of the northeastern state, the governor while interacting with
the personnel of the Indian Army, Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP), Border Roads Organization
(BRO) and state police, said on Saturday that the international border of the state is sensitive and
strategically important for the security of the nation.
Parnaik shared fine points of border management with the security forces and encouraged them to
maintain physical fitness and sound mental alertness, a Raj Bhavan communique said here.
He also shared modern-day security design and steps with the personnel to keep the border safe
and secure.
The governor advised the security forces to be vigilant and instil a sense of security amongst the
people while emphasising on reinforcing the goodwill amongst the local population for the troops
and personnel.
During his daylong tour to Anjaw district, the Governor also laid a wreath at the Walong War
memorial.
Earlier at Kibithoo, the 2 Div General Officer Commanding Major General V S Deshpande and 82
Mountain Brigade Commander Brig R Bhandari, briefed him on the operational preparedness and
security measures in place for maintaining the sanctity of the Line of Actual Control.
They also informed him about the bonhomie existing among the security forces and local population
and cordial relations with the district administration.
Director General of Police Anand Mohan, Anjaw Deputy Commissioner Talo Jerang, Superintendent
of Police Rike Kamsi, officers and troops of Bihar, Assam and Punjab regiments and personnel from

Village programme at Kibithoo.
Interacting with the villagers, he said that the Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra aimed at ensuring the
people who could not avail benefits for welfare schemes and programmes of the Centre must be
provided before January 26, next year.

The yatra has a special focus on tribal welfare and the wellbeing of the tribal community, he pointed
out and appealed to the people who are yet to avail benefits from central government schemes and
programmes, to come forward and avail it.
Parnaik advised the government officials to work in a mission mode and ensure that all the eligible
persons are registered as beneficiaries and cent per cent saturation is achieved. He also advised the
administration and elected representatives to reach out to the distant villages in a continuous cycle
every day.
The governor said that the National Education Policy 2020 is all about learning and skilling and
