In a state like Arunachal Pradesh which has less population as compared to Andhra Pradesh, there are 26 districts he said and there was a need to form more districts in terms of population as well. Earlier there was one district with a population of 38,15,000 people. Now with the formation of 26 districts, there will be one district that will have a population of around 19 lakh people. The Chief Minister said a district constituting 6 to 8 assembly segments were been formed except in tribal districts. The formation of new districts would offer better transparency and governance, he stated. The Chief Minister clarified that the government has set up these districts and created revenue divisions that will help in governance right from the village level which is the correct approach.
