    Arunachal: Government procures 60,000 Tri-color masks for students

    The Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) have supplied the ‘high-quality khadi cotton face masks’ of Arunachal Pradesh government

    Guwahtai: To instil a sense of nationalism among the students of the frontier state Arunachal Pradesh, the government of the state has purchased 60,000 Tri-color khadi masks for schools children ahead of re-opening of schools from November 16.

    The state government has decided to re-open classes for students from Class X to XII and placed an order for the masks on November 3.

    The Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) have supplied the ‘high-quality khadi cotton face masks’ of Arunachal Pradesh government, as per the official press release.

    The KVIC supplied the mask to the state government in just six days in view of the urgency. The KVIC delivered the consignment by air to ensure timely delivery. 

    Officials in Arunachal Pradesh said that the decision was taken by the BJP-led government in the state as part of its steps to allow students express their nationalism in view of China’s frequent claims that the state was part of its South Tibet region.

    The government has repeatedly stressed that people in Arunachal Pradesh are as patriotic as those in rest of the country and China’s claim would make no difference to the frontier state’s residents.
