Vibrant democracy possible through good governance: Rijiju
Union Minister Kiren Rijiju on Friday said a vibrant democracy is possible through good governance.
"A vibrant democracy is possible through good governance and good governance becomes a reality when there is accountability," Rijiju said while speaking in the pre-session meeting on the occasion of commencement of first sitting of special session in the new assembly building here.
"A tall magnificent building will be of no use if the very essence and importance of the institution is not taken into account," the Union Minister of State for Home Affairs said.
Rijiju asked every member of the House to make meaningful use of the institution and take optimum benefit from the privilege given to them for the good of the state and its people.
He urged upon the members to maintain the traditional democratic ideals to value the parliamentary form of governance. Chief Minister Pema Khandu called upon the members of the assembly to uphold the sanctity of the highest law making institution of the state and work towards making Arunachal Pradesh Legislature the best in the country.
While throwing light on the evolution of Arunachal Pradesh Assembly, Khandu said, "Our state assembly has traversed a glorious journey since its inception in 1975.
Keeping in-stride the 'ups and downs' we have progressed and emerged as an identity distinct and determined. All through these years the legislative assembly has played a pivotal role as the highest platform of decision making and shaping the future of Arunachal Pradesh. It has been aptly declared as one of the best functioning legislative assemblies of the country, a recognition well deserved."
