said in New Delhi on Thursday.

Union Rural Development Minister Jairam Ramesh informed this to state Chief Minister Nabam Tuki during a meeting at the capital on Wednesday.

Ramesh and Tuki also discussed various issues related to Indira Awas Yojana, National Rural Livelihood Mission (NRLM) and Prime Minister Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY).

Expressing his gratitude to Ramesh, Tuki requested him to consider the remaining 55 schemes under PMGSY pending with the ministry, the sources said.

Ramesh assured him that the schemes meant for new connectivity in the districts of Papum Pare, East Siang, Upper Siang, Kurung Kumey, West Siang and Upper Siang would be favourably considered and advised the state government to resubmit the same with all required details.

Ramesh said he would be visiting Vijoynagar on October 5 to lay the foundation stone of the Miao-Vijoynagar road as he had promised to Tuki earlier.
