Conserve nature and natural resources: Felix

DIRANG, Sep 16: RWD Minister Bamang Felix has advocated far-sighted planning in order to live harmoniously with nature.
“Development and expansion should not be at the expense of nature’s fury. Education and awareness is the only way out,” the minister said while attending a conference of the Dirang Employees Welfare Society (DEWS) here in West Kameng district on 16 September.
Lauding the role of the DEWS, Felix said it has done a remarkable job in bridging the gap between the older and the younger generations by acknowledging their roles and achievements and felicitating them.
He expressed optimism that there would be better coordination between the legislators and the government employees to materialize the policies and programmes of the government, and to deliver them to the last man in the queue.
Acknowledging the request of DEWS president Dorjee Phuntso for maintenance of the dilapidated PMGSY roads in the area, Felix assured that “as and when the proposal for grant of maintenance fund is approved, necessary maintenance works of all the PMGSY roads in the state would be taken up, starting from Dirang.”
Earlier, MLA Japu Deru called upon the CBOs and other social organizations to “forgo personal gains and glory and dedicatedly work for the welfare of the society without any discrimination or biasness.”
Local legislator Phurpa Tsering also committed to stand by the yeomen services initiated by the DEWS, and congratulated DIG SSB Sonam Yudron and Everester Anshu Jamsenpa – both natives of Dirang – for their achievements and for being role models for the younger generation, especially girls.
The DEWS felicitated retired members of the DEWS and achievers in various fields from the area. Cultural programmes were held to mark the occasion. (DIPRO)
