The celebration remained a low-key affair this year due to the pandemic as only a small number of people were invited to attend the celebration by maintaining all COVID-19 protocols.

I thank the people from the core of my heart for their unprecedented cooperation and standing united in these challenging times, fighting against the COVID-19 pandemic. We are proud of the fact that two Made in India vaccines are now available. We will keep on working hard to ramp up our capacity for covering more and more population for vaccination as per the guidelines of the Centre, Dr Mishra said.

He, however, said that vaccination does not mean that the people lower their guards and appealed to the people to continue to take precautions such as wearing mask, washing hands regularly, avoiding spitting in public places and observing physical distancing.

The governor said the state government had taken up a massive Rs. 400 crore mission for upgrading the infrastructure in the district hospitals, besides establishing ICU facilities at seven locations in the state.

The government had purchased 78 ambulances which will provide service in the remote corners of the state. Around 400 staff nurses, 66 medical officers and 34 specialists’ doctors have been recruited during the last few months, he added.

This year, the prime focus of my government will be to bring educational reforms in tune with the New National Education Policy, Dr Mishra added.

Referring to the agriculture sector, the governor said that the government has successfully formed 25 Farmers Producers Companies (FPC) comprising more than 8,000 farmers and 10 Farmers Producers Organizations (FPO) comprising 1,000farmers.

In our effort to increase farmers’ income, under Arunachal Pradesh Bee and Honey Mission, we have expanded farmer’s activities in 10 potential districts. We have also taken up a plan to certify large areas as organic, he said.

The governor said that under the ‘Chief Minister Skill Advance Certificate Course’ Scheme for harnessing the tourism potential, training on adventure sports like mountaineering, trekking, river rafting, mountain biking, paragliding, is being provided through National Institute of Mountaineering and Allied Sports (NIMAS) at Dirang in West Kameng district.

It aims to spread awareness about critical health issues facing the country. In wake of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the need for WASH (WaterSanitation and Hygiene) is reaffirmed as handwashing is one of the ways to prevent Coronavirus infection and other diseases. The campaign highlights the importance of nutrition and healthcare for women and children to prevent maternal and child mortality, fight malnutrition, stunting, wasting, anaemia and disease prevention through vaccines. Importance of programmes like Public Distribution System (PDS), Mid-day Meal Scheme, POSHAN Abhiyan and the role of Aganwadis and ASHA workers are also covered. Only a Swachh or clean India where toilets are used and open defecation free (ODF) status achieved as part of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2014, can eradicate diseases like diahorrea and become a Swasth or healthy India.
