Officials urged to work as team

SEPPA, Jul 1: East Kameng Deputy Commissioner Gaurav Singh Rajawat on Friday urged the government officials of the district to work as a team and confront issues head-on.
Addressing a meeting of the District Development Coordination and Monitoring Committee here, the DC exhorted all the departments to confront issues “by devising solutions first, rather than finding excuses,” and urged them to shoulder their responsibilities.
He also exhorted the officials not to shy away from endorsing hard action “if it is done for the progress of all.”
Rajawat directed the departments concerned, particularly the rural development department, to dovetail and incorporate water conservation works in their action plans, especially for the monsoon seasons.
Enquiring about the PMKSY, he suggested convening a “convergence meeting” of all the line departments to draw and compile the status of the total cultivable and irrigated areas of the district.
Informing about the proposal to set up mobile phone towers in almost all the administrative circles of the district, the DC directed the Pakke-Kessang EAC to identify a skilled person “for opening up a banking correspondence,” and directed the DIO to assess and repair all the VSAT facilities in the district.
Rajawat directed the DDSE to furnish the list of defunct schools and the status of their infrastructures, and suggested that such schools be used for other official purposes, such as panchayat offices and health facilities.
He directed the DDSE to fill up all the vacant posts of teachers and other supporting staffs. He also directed the DDSE to engage BRCCs, CRCCs and subject teachers for regular teaching purposes.
DRDA Project Director Dahey Sangno highlighted the physical and financial achievements with regard to the implementation of centrally-sponsored schemes like MGNREGA, PMAY (G), IWMP/PMKSY, and others, while heads and officials of various departments made presentations on the progress made by their departments.
EKSW&CO chairman Safar Pao, WWO president Mone Singhi Taba, and ST Morcha representative Loku Sono also took part in the discussions and called for improving the law and order situation in the district. (DIPRO)
