Itanagar, Feb 4 (PTI) Arunachal Pradesh Parliamentary secretary for science and technology Phurpa Tsering has advocated for giving more emphasis on the tourism sector of the state for creating employment avenues in the state. “Emphasis on tourism industry will generate self-employment and income to the educated unemployed youths and mitigate their financial dependence on their leaders”, he said during a public meeting at Dirang in West Kameng district yesterday.
