‘To avoid overwhelming of our screening and quarantine facilities, staggered evactuation plan will be in place to bring back stranded Arunachalis in batches’

Pema Khandu – Chief Minister of Arunachal Pradesh:

  • People of Northeast, particularly from Arunachal will greatly benefit from Atma Nirbhar Bharat Abhiyan launched by PM Narendramodi Ji.
  • It’s an opportunity for state to stand on its own feet. It will also open windows of opportunity for state entrepreneurs and generate employment.
  • As interstate travel has been relaxed, Arunachal has made it mandatory the institutional quarantine for all person entering Arunachal.
  • Upon COVID19 test and if found negative, the person will be sent for home quarantine under strict surveillance.
  • I appeal all respective tribal community, respective villages to monitor interstate returnees of their area, who have been discharged from institutional quarantine upon being tested negative to make them follow mandatory 14 day home quarantine.
  • On concerns over personnels from central armed police forces posted in other state being reported positive for COVID19, Arunachal government is in touch with central forces in our state.
  • We have been assured that SOPs are strictly followed when their personnel enter Arunachal.
  • COVID-19 testing is being aggressively taken up.
  • We have recently installed TrueNat machine in Naharlagun with capacity of 20 samples/day.
  • The RT-PCR lab installed in TRIHMS is also equipped with new technology that would enhance testing to 200 samples/day.
  • No dedicated special trains for Arunachal to bring back the stranded.
  • This is to avoid overwhelming of our screening and quarantine facilities.
  • Staggered evactuation plan will be in place to bring back the stranded in batches.
  • This is for safety of all and the stranded.
  • To evacuate stranded Arunachalis from other parts of the country, other than Delhi, we are tying-up with Assam govt to bring them back through special arrangements by trains. I am thankful to Assam govt for their cooperation.
  • To prevent any racism against Arunachali in other states, our nodal officers assigned for different states are actively in touch with the respective state govts for prompt action in any such events. Many cases of racism has been strictly dealt with such active cooperation.
  • I would wish people from other states stranded in Arunachal to better stay back.
  • Arunachal is safe and your stay here can better guarantee your safety from coronavirus.
  • We are always ready to take good care of the stranded people from other states here in Arunachal.
