Pasighat, Balijan and Tezu are being considered for AIIMS

Cm-tuki-RGUITANAGAR, Jan 30: Chief Minister Nabam Tuki today informed the state assembly that Pasighat, Balijan and Tezu is being considered as proposed site for establishing the All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS) in the state. Responding to the question raised by BJP MLA Tumke Bagra, whether Basar or Aalo will get AIIMS, Tuki stated these three locations were selected keeping in mind the air connectivity these places will have in the future.

“ALGs of Pasighat and Tezu are upgraded and green field airport is coming up at Hollongi near Balijan. High quality institutes like AIIMS needed air connectivity as experts keep visiting for various research related work,” said Tuki.


However he added that Basar will definitely be considered in future for setting up central institute as it is a centrally located town and is one of the most beautiful parts of state.

Tuki also told the house that from next year onwards catchment area admission system will be stopped and colleges of Arunachal will take admission purely on merit basis. “This will not only help in integration of young Arunachalees but also respect their hard work and talent,” Tuki added.'
