DC tours Bana, learns about people’s grievances

SEPPA, Apr 1: East Kameng Deputy Commissioner Gaurav Singh Rajawat toured Bana EAC headquarters on 31 March to learn about the problems and grievances of the people there.
At the PHC in Bana Camp, the DC asked the medical officer in-charge to stay at his place of posting and provide medical facility round the week. He asked the DMO and the MO to keep all the registers and other records, including the medicine stock of the health centre, up-to-date.
Rajawat also visited the anganwadi centres (AWC) in New Sopung and Yangsey villages. He expressed dismay over the functioning of the Integrated Child Development Services under the WCD department, as there has been no supply of ration and other items there for a long time.
It was decided to set up an Aadhaar camp at every AWC to enroll all the children of the centres.
Later, addressing a public meeting at the Bana GHSS ground, Rajawat assured the people that he would take up their grievances with the appropriate authorities.
Some of the major grievances placed by public included early payment of compensation to all the left-out ‘highway-affected’ people; posting of subject teachers at the GHSS, along with a full-fledged principal; posting of a sub-inspector (SI) at the Bana police station; compensation from the NEEPCO (Kameng HEP) for the affected downstream area; appointment of two political interpreters; and posting of a doctor at the Bana PHC.
SP Vikas Kumar, who accompanied the DC, advised the public to submit their requirements in written form. He informed that at present there are only three SIs in the district.
The SP also said that security cameras will be installed at the Bana check gate in April.
The meeting was attended by GBs, HGBs, PRI members, government employees, and the public of Bana.
The DC was accompanied by ZPC Meyuk Cheda, ICDS Deputy Director In-charge Khoda Tapa, DMO Kaya Lapung, and others.
