Itanagar, Oct 12 (PTI) Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu today said no policy or programme which could hamper the interests and rights of indigenous population would be implemented in the state.

Khandu said this to a delegation of Students Union Movement of All Arunachal (SUMAA) at his office here today, an official release said.

The SUMAA team put forth the concerns on the implementation of Tibetan Rehabilitation Policy and its consequences on indigenous tribal population.

Khandu said the Tibetan Rehabilitation Policy was formulated and adopted by the Centre for all the states having Tibetan settlements but it was yet to be implemented in the state till date.

“Any policy decision taken by the state government will keep the state’s interest paramount,” Khandu said.

The chief minister assured the delegation that the issue would be discussed with all stakeholders and also be taken up in the coming Assembly session.
