Panchayat extends support to steering road committee

CHAYANG TAJO, Mar 14: The Panchayat body of Chayang Tajo in East Kameng district extended its support to the demands placed by the Seppa, Chayang Tajo Road Steering Committee (SCTRSC).
Ina representation submitted to Governor Dr B D Mishra on March 12 last, the SCTRSC has sought strict action against Gammon India Pvt Ltd within seven days for failing to construct the 81 km long Seppa to Chayang Tajo road.
“We strongly support the demands raised by the SCTRSC. The state government should immediately set up a high-level enquiry committee to unearth the truth behind non-completion of the 81 km long Seppa to Chayang Tajo road even after 10 long years of duration,” said Chayang Tajo Zilla Parishad Member Lama Bagang.
The ZPM also highly criticised the sluggish and poor quality road construction work being executed by the Gammon India Pvt Ltd under the supervision of the state’s PWD.
He further alleged that as a result of shoddy work, blacktopping done in most of the stretches are substandard and need immediate improvement.
The construction and improvement of 81 km long Seppa to Chayang Tajo road under the North East Council (NEC) was handed over to the PWD, Chayang Tajo subdivision as per the government order No. SPWD-162/2006, dated: Itanagar 13thAugust, 2009.
