Mukut Mithi sworn in as Arunachal CM
The Congress legislature party leader, Mukut Mithi, was today sworn in as chief minister of Arunachal Pradesh for the second consecutive term.
Governor Arvind Dave administered the oath of office and secrecy to Mithi and his council of ministers at a simple but impressive ceremony held at the Darbar Hall of Itanagar Raj Bhawan.
Dave also administered the oath of office and secrecy to 36 ministers, including 25 cabinet ministers and 13 ministers of state.
All but one member of the outgoing cabinet have been re-inducted.
Former chief minister Tomo Riba, Rajya Sabha member, Nabam Rebia, AICC observer Silvious Condpon and AICC secretary, Omem Moyang Deori were present at the swearing-in ceremony.
Speaking to reporters after the ceremony, Mithi said his priority would be the fulfilment of basic minimum needs of the people like water, rural housing and roads.
He said the backward areas of the state like Tirap and Changlang districts would be given more attention.
Mithi said portfolios to his ministers would be distributed within two to three days.
Answering a question, he said the problem of unemployment would receive due attention and private investment would be encouraged in the state.
''A new land policy will also be introduced in the state. In fact a bill for this is ready,'' he said.
