Handing over the new district flag to the new deputy commissioner in the presence of local legislator and Education Minister Taba Tedir, the Chief Minister extended his heartiest congratulations to the people of the newly created district including Yachuli constituency.

“Let’s embark on a new journey together to make this district a shining example of development for others,” he appealed.

In his address, Khandu stressed the need to combat corruption for a prosperous future. “A strong commitment is key, and I believe that people’s support will be instrumental. Together, we can build a corruption-free ecosystem,” he said.

“I share in the joy of the people and assure them that all infrastructure needs will be met. Yachuli’s potential in agriculture and horticulture is immense. With a robust road network, we can accelerate production and exports,” Khandu wrote on X after launching the new district.
