CM attends church ‘dedication ceremony’

ITANAGAR, Nov 8: Chief Minister Pema Khandu today attended the ‘dedication ceremony’ of Nirjuli Town Baptist Church along with MoS (Home) Kiren Rijiju, State BJP president Tapir Gao and Yachuli MLA Likha Saaya.

The Chief Minister, in his speech, lauded Saaya for sponsoring the construction of the church by donating land and funds. He said the Church has great contribution in moulding Arunachali society by inducing behavioral changes. People are becoming more sympathetic, peace loving and are developing ability to forego personal egos and enmities, which gives them the ability to solve social problems.

Seeking support of the Church in eliminating corrupt practices during elections, the Chief Minister said such practices cannot be wiped out in one go but will require sustained effort and effective mobilization. He said since people look towards Churches and religious institutions seeking answers to humanity’s deepest needs, they can effectively influence people to do away with the corrupt practices.

The Chief Minister expressed hope that once the corruption is rooted out from election process, it can be further weeded out from other processes as those elected will be of clean background and with good intent. So he called for an all out effort to nip the corruption from its bud i.e. elections.

MoS (Home) Rijiju and MLA Saaya also spoke on the occasion.
