Press Trust of India  |  Aizawl 

Union Minister of State for Development of North East Region (DoNER) Jitendra Singh today said his ministry will organise a mini secretariat camp for a period of four to five days in the states of the region by rotation every month.

Addressing a press conference here tonight, Singh said such mini DoNER secretariat camps would be held in Mizoram in May where the Ministry's Secretary and other officials would visit the state and interact with state government officials, legislators and civil societies.

"It is difficult for the state government officials to come to Delhi, so Delhi will be coming here to hear the grievances," he said, adding, the Centre was giving high priority to the region and Jammu and Kashmir.

Singh said he would discuss about direct flight connections between Aizawl and Delhi with the Ministry of Civil Aviation, DGCA and private airlines operating in the region.

On the racial attacks against the people from the North East in Delhi and other metros, he said the situation had improved and he had asked the people from the region to take a pro-active role in this regard.
