“Our youths are born patriot and physically fit for tough terrains like Arunachal Pradesh. They can be used for defence services in the border areas and I can assure you that they will be second to none when it comes to defend the nation’s territorial integrity and freedom,” the chief minister said.

“We are expecting a huge participation of local tribal youths who have passed Class VIII and above in the rally,” Col Gupta said. He told Tuki that the recruitment process which starts on September 2 at Aalo would include medical examination, physical test and a common entrance examination.

The Colonel briefed the CM of the recruitment rallies that are being organized in the state on a regular basis, the source said.

Separate dates have been allotted to districts to ensure smooth conduct of the recruitment rally. September 2 has been allotted to candidates from Lohit, Anjaw, Lower Dibang Valley, Upper Siang, West Siang and East Siang, while September 3 to Upper Subansiri, Lower Subansiri, Papumpare, Tawang, East Kameng, and Kurung Kumey.
