NEW DELHI OCT. 13. The President, A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, will visit Arunachal Pradesh on October 14 and 15.

Earlier this month, he had visited Tripura and Manipur.

A Rashtrapati Bhavan release said Dr. Kalam had visited the States on several occasions in his capacity as scientific adviser to the Government of India and shared technological innovations for solving certain problems.

Dr. Kalam's programme includes the laying of the foundation of the proposed ropeway at Tawang Gonpa and visits to the Tawang Monastery, the War Memorial site and the Yid-Gha Choszen (Abode of Dharma). He would interact with monks, nuns, school children, teachers and representatives of various organisations.

A presentation would be made at Tawang on the prospects and problems of development in the State.

At Itanagar, the State capital, Dr. Kalam, would visit the Jawaharlal Nehru State Museum and interact with school children, teachers, NGOs, Ministers and officials. The President would also visit the Tezpur University.

The President believes that by giving a suitable impetus to the development process and by a partnership between the "hard-working people of the States", the region could, within a short time, attain its economic potential and development, the press release said.
