Itanagar: The unfinished job of laying the foundation stone for the prestigious National Institute of Technology (NIT) at its new and permanent site at Jote near Itanagar in Arunachal Pradesh by former Union HRD Minister Kapil Sibal would be finished by his successor M M Pallam Raju.

Raju, who has been given the Human Resource Development ministry in the last Cabinet reshuffle of UPA-II, accepted the invitation to lay the foundation stone extended by Chief Minister Nabam Tuki, who called on him on Thursday evening at New Delhi.

Due to the ongoing winter Parliamentary session, Raju offered to visit the state during the first part of January.

Tuki, while extending wishes on behalf of the people of Arunachal Pradesh to Raju on his assumption of the HRD portfolio, expressed hope that he would continue giving special attention to the state as his predecessor Kapil Sibal.

Sibal, as the HRD Minister, had visited the state capital Itanagar on October 12.

He attended the 3rd Convocation of the North East Regional Institute of Science & Technology and was scheduled to lay the foundation stone of NIT. (UNI)
