BRO to start probe into Kimin signboard goof

Itanagar, July 19 (UNI): The Border Roads Organisation (BRO) will initiate an inquiry into the signboard goof in Kimin and it will be concluded at the earliest without any delay, Arunachal Pradesh Home Minister Bamang Felix said here on Monday.

The country’s premier road construction agency had apologised “unconditionally” to the people of Arunachal Pradesh late last month after it drew a barrage of condemnation from various quarters for white pasting of signboards outside the ITBP’s RTC Kimin and erroneously portraying Kimin under Papum Pare district of Arunachal as a part of Assam during Defence Minister Rajnath Singh’s visit to the area to e-inaugurate 12 roads built by BRO on June 17.

Addressing a press conference, Felix said a meeting was convened by him on Monday, where Lt Gen Rajeev Chaudhary, Directorate General (DG) of BRO was briefed about the findings and recommendations of state government constituted ‘high-level committee’ and ‘fact finding committee’ of the Arunachal Indigenous Tribes Forum (AITF), a conglomeration of all apex community-based organisations (CBOs), on the Kimin issue.

After detailed deliberations over the matter, besides enquiry, it was also agreed upon that the BRO based on its findings, will take suitable action, he said.

The meeting also decided that in order to ensure fair enquiry concerned BRO officers/officials shall be transferred to other locations, Felix informed.
