Lauding the role of police in fighting Covid19, the Arunachal Pradesh CM urged the Police Community to play an active role in bringing closer the diverse communities of the state. He also put forth the suggestion to form an association of police wives like the Army Wives Welfare Association that could play an active role in bringing positive change in the society. Assuring full support of the government, the CM said such an organisation could use its network to work for the empowerment of youths and women and also facilitate skill development.
