The remote Vijaynagar circle in Changlang district has huge tourism potential, Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu has said. Khandu reached Vijaynagar, which is surrounded on three sides by Myanmar and the other side by a vast swathe of a thick forest of Namdapha National Park on Friday as part of the 'Arunachal Rising Campaign'. Addressing a public function on Friday, he said Vijayanagar has huge tourism potential owing to its scenic beauty and also scope for horticulture and agriculture activities.

"The potentials have been hampered by lack of proper surface and air communication ..." the chief minister said. He said the 156-km Miao-Vijaynagar road would be taken up on priority in the coming days, a CMO release said. The chief minister said a 70 m steel suspension bridge would be constructed beside the existing Empen bridge on The 32-km motorable road from Miao, which gets cut off during monsoon.

For air connectivity to Vijaynagar, Khandu said he would ask the Centre to expedite work on advanced landing ground (ALG) and said that it would soon be connected with other six ALGs in the state under CM connectivity scheme. The chief minister said that the state government has approved scheduled tribe status to the Yobin community and has been issuing ST certificates. He gave away ST certificates to two Yobin community members on the occasion.
