ITANAGAR, Aug 22: The Union Law and Justice Minister Kiren Rijiju has assured that he will soon speak to Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking establishment of a high court in the state.

Everyone should live peacefully together,” said the Union Law and Justice Minister.
Further he termed road infrastructure as a core issue for the development of the state.
“Road connectivity is a big problem. Many areas of the state do not have proper road infrastructures. Now we are taking it up on a large scale. The process has started for frontier highway and east west industrial corridor road projects,” said Rijiju. The Chakm-Hajong refugee issue will be resolved amicably while interstate boundary issue is also taken care of for a peaceful resolution , he added.
