Remote Parang gets bus service

SAGALEE, Jan 21: A state transport bus to ply between Parang and the Naharlagun ISBT was flagged off by former chief minister Nabam Tuki on 20 January from Parang, on the occasion of the 27th foundation day of the Sagalee GB Association.
Tuki, who is also the local MLA, lauded the state transport department for providing the bus service to remote Parang. He said patients from Parang circle would now find it easier to access medical treatment in Naharlagun and nearby Assam.
He appealed to the gaon burahs to be proactive while discharging their powers and functions under the provision of the Assam Frontier (Administration of Justice) Regulation, 1945.
“The gaon burahs should be loyal to the government and work round the clock to preserve the age-old customary laws of the land,” he said, and lauded the people of Sagalee subdivision over the “nil crime report for the last three years.”
The gaon burah association also adopted a few resolutions, which included placing the appeal for codification of customary laws before the government; adequate pension after retirement; providing gaon burahs with free electricity, mobile sets and televisions under the CM’s Rural Information Scheme; water supply connectivity and identity cards; and continuation of the CM’s Universal Health Insurance Scheme.
