Namsai: Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein in the presence of Lekang MLA Jummum Ete Deori and Venerable Aggadhamma Bhikkhu of the Pariyatti Sasana Buddha Vihara on Wednesday inaugurated the new office of the Seva Bharati here.
Speaking on the occasion, Mein lauded the efforts of Seva Bharati in providing yeomen services to the weaker and underprivileged people.
Mein said the organization has been working tirelessly and relentlessly towards making a strong and empowered society.
“I believe the welfare and social service programmes of the organization will largely benefit the people of Namsai and its adjoining districts,” he said.
Seva Bharati is an NGO working among the economically weaker sections of Indian society, including tribal and indigenous communities.
It also works among urban slum dwellers and resettlement colonies by introducing welfare and social service programs, such as free medical assistance, free education, and vocational training. The organization has been honored with many international and national awards.
Mein said Arunachal Pradesh is a living example of unity in diversity as the state is home to 26 major tribes and numerous sub-tribes which all have varied culture, tradition and belief.
“Since time immemorial efforts are being made by all to preserve, protect and promote the rich cultural heritage of the state. The state government too has taken significant measures to preserve and promote the age-old identity of various tribes,” he said, while urging the youths to shoulder responsibilities to preserve the rich cultural heritage and traditions of Arunachal.
Further while terming drugs as the biggest hurdle for a progressive society, the deputy chief minister called upon all to join hands to fight and eradicate the menace.
