Dakpe speaking to the press informs that we will stick to the Tarun Chatarjee commission report, though the case is sub-judice in supreme court of India but the initiative of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah is appreciated that the issue needs to be resolved outside court through dialogue. It is a good step toward peace and tranquility of the region but we tribal people are known for peace loving and we do not go for disputes and want peace. He said.
We Arunachalee treat Assam as our elder brother and they should also reciprocate us accordingly. We are settled much before India independence and there is no local dispute among the neighbors but the Assam forest officers with officials in pretax of various forest regulation act the innocent people are harassed and disputes arises but today we have discussed on the issue at district level in length and accordingly the district administration will submit its report to state government for further perusal. We also like to see that the issue is resolved between Assam-Arunachal Pradesh once for all. Dakpe said.

Terming the road connectivity as mother of all development, Dakpe said I have a commitment that the Raga needs to be connected properly through various angles and hope the formation cutting in all three packages of Trans Arunachal Highway (Potin-Bopi road) would be completed by March 2022. With regards to Dollungmukh-Raga road the tender process is in progress for 30 KM whereas the FC work for 69 KM is already done, I am trying to pursue with central government for two lane road which is one of the most viable road which will connect the north Lakhimpur with Kamle district and Kra Daadi district with the present Potin-Bopi road in Kamle district and Tali one of the remotest circle having international border in Kra Daadi district and important connectivity for people of Kamle district as whole. he said.
