On Thursday, a man from Arunachal Pradesh became a multimillionaire, landing a windfall of Rs 6.31 crore.

The amount was a compensation for land acquired from his family by the Indian Army around five decades ago.

Prem Dorjee, a resident of Tukpen village in West Kameng district, Phuntso Khawa and Khandu Glow — from Singchung from the same district have also turned millionaires overnight. While Phuntso got Rs 6.21 cr, Khandu became richer by Rs 5.98 cr.

“The compensation has been possible because of love of Prime Minister Narendra Modiji for Arunachal,” chief minister Pema Khandu, tweeted.

Several other residents in both areas also bagged hefty sums, which were handed over by Arunachal Pradesh chief minister at two separate functions on Thursday. Union minister of state for home Kiren Rijiju was also present at both the functions.

“A total of Rs 24.56 cr was handed out to five villagers at the event in Singchung while Rs 13.17 cr was given to seven residents of Tukpen,” Sonal Swaroop, deputy commissioner of West Kameng, informed.
