Itanagar, November 7: Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu said that he wished to visit the church often as the ambience there offered him mental peace today.
He made the statement while attending the dedication ceremony of Nirjuli Town Baptist Church here at Itanagar.
The other dignitaries present were Minister of State, Home Kiren Rijiju, State BJP President Tapir Gao and Yachuli MLA Likha Saaya.
“The Church has a great contribution in moulding Arunachali society by inducing behavioural changes. People are becoming more sympathetic, peace-loving and are developing the ability to forego personal egos and enmities, which gives them the ability to solve social problems,” said Khandu.
Furthermore, he sought the support of the Church in eliminating corrupt practices during elections,
“Such practice cannot be wiped out in one go but will require sustained effort and effective mobilization, he said.
Once the corruption is rooted out from the election process, it can be further weeded out from other processes as those elected will be of clean background and with good intent, he added.
