Staff REPORTER

ITANAGAR, Nov 24: The Food Corporation of India (FCI), Arunachal Pradesh Region joined the other departments of the central government to celebrate 75 years of India’s Independence as the Iconic Week of ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’ (AKAM) at the FCI’s Regional Office here on Wednesday. On the occasion, the achievements of FCI, Arunachal Pradesh Region and its services being provided to the people of the State were also highlighted.

Attending the programme as chief guest, Itanagar Capital Complex Deputy Commissioner Talo Potom highlighted as to why the Azadi Ka Amrut Mahotsav is being celebrated by the government, various government departments and district administration after its launch by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in March last. He also paid tribute to the freedom fighters, who sacrificed their life for freedom of India.

Appreciating FCI, Arunachal Pradesh Region for celebrating Azadi Ka Amrut Mahotsav and also for highlighting their services in the State, DC Potom requested them keep their services to the needy people of the state because many interior parts in the state still depend on FCI or PDS rice because sometimes their agriculture products are not sufficient.

He also advised the students that they are the future of the state, so they should start thinking of welfare of state and become good human being and do good works with helpful nature.  

On the occasion, atleast 18 beneficiaries were felicitated.
