Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu on Monday said the state government would provide a new designated land here for holding protests, in place of the current one that has been allotted to the ruling BJP for construction of its permanent office.
The Tennis Court inside the Indira Gandhi Park in the state capital is has been the designated area for staging protests and holding dharnas by organisations.
The new protest area would have facilities of toilet, water and electricity which the current land lacked, Khandu said.
Attending the foundation stone laying ceremony and bhumi pujan for the BJP office, Khandu said the government is not opposed to protests and the concerns raised by the organisations were genuine.
The party office would be built using funds through contributions from well wishers and the party's own sources and he contributed Rs 20 lakh from his personal means for it.
