Gao inaugurates link road

PASIGAHT, Mar 8: State BJP president Tapir Gao on Thursday inaugurated the much-awaited Sissen to Leying rural link road.
Naturally blessed Sissen village, known for agri-horti products in Siang belt, was in the news headline for boycotting the last general elections in 2014, demanding immediate road communication for the village.
Soon after the inauguration, Gao, while attending a public meeting said that rural economy plays a significant role in overall economy as it has high potential in terms of labour and natural resources, which are the basic inputs in production process.
“The state government is committed to connect every nook and corner of the state with the nearest headquarter by providing road connectivity”, he said.
Gao added that the present state government led by Chief Minister Pema Khandu is committed to provide all basic amenities like safe drinking water, road connectivity, electricity, health and education to the people across the state.
He appealed to the leaders and villagers to be partners in the development process.
Earlier, MLAs Tapang Taloh and Olom Panyang also appreciated the courage and efforts of the villagers.
Responding to a memorandum submitted by Tajir Siram on behalf of Pongging, Sissen, Pangi and Nuggong Banggo, MLA Taloh gave sanction of the “Sissen to Reklak via Pongging” road which would shorten road communication.
Taloh said that provisioning of basic infrastructure facilities would help in tapping the vast resources in the rural areas.
Gao also released a CD, “Dusbin Lo Gelit To” (Throw in dustbin), the lyrics of which have been penned by Tajir Siram and Sung by Neptili Mengu.
