CALSOM urges govt to establish ADC Hq at Wakro

TEZU, May 16: The Cultural & Literary Society of Mishmi (CALSOM) has submitted a memorandum to the chief minister placing several demands, including establishment of ADC headquarters (independent charge) and police station at Wakro.
The CALSOM appealed for upgrading the Wakro EAC headquarters to ADC headquarters for administrative convenience considering the large geographical area and dense demography of the hilly town.
It appealed to the chief minister to establish a full-fledged police station at Wakro to maintain law and order and prevent criminal activities.
The memorandum stated that Wakro/Medo area has witnessed a sharp rise in criminal activities in the recent past. Besides criminal activities like extortion, several instances of crime against females have come to the fore owing to porous border with neighbouring Changlang and Namsai districts, the memorandum said and expressed grave concern over unrestricted movement of various antisocial and criminal elements in the area.
On educational front, the CALSOM appealed for posting vice principal and six subject teachers against the vacant posts at government higher secondary school, Hayuliang, to upgrade the Metengliang government middle school to a secondary school and government secondary school, Tezu to higher secondary level, besides establishment of a Jawahar Novodaya Vidyalaya at Tezu.
It also urged for upgrading the 10KW medium wave transmitter at the All India Radio in Tezu to a 10 KW FM transmitter.
