Itanagar, Jan 31: Sending a veiled message that Arunachal Pradesh is an integral part of India, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh today said the state is "our land of rising sun", for whose development the Centre is committed.

"The sun kisses India first in Arunachal Pradesh. It is our land of rising sun," he said while addressing a public meeting here on the first day of his maiden visit to this border state, parts of which China claims as its territory. Dr Singh, the first Prime Minister to visit the state in 12 years, said, ''Arunachal Pradesh will rise from the east as a new star and become one of the best regions of our country,'' signalling his government's commitment for development of this land-locked state.
