KANUBARI, Nov 7: Addressing the villagers of Banfera under Kanubari circle on Monday, APSCIT & e-Governance Chairman cum MLA Gabriel Denwang Wangsu called upon the villagers to settle down at the foothill areas for sustainable economic development.
Wangsu, who was on a month-long tour to his constituency to take stock of the development activities, also visited the new settlement areas of Wunli, Laho and Pamtingshe under Banfera, the paramount village of Kanubari.
