Org welcomes govt initiatives, seeks subject teachers

SEPPA, Oct 11: The East Kameng Social Welfare & Cultural Organisation (EKSWCO) lauded the state government for its initiative to open an agriculture college and an RK Mission School (RKMS) in the district.
Chief Minister Pema Khandu on Tuesday laid the foundation stone for the third RKMS of the state in Lumdung village near here. He also announced that the second agriculture college of the state would be established in East Kameng.
Welcoming the announcement, the EKSWCO said “it is a pragmatic step towards inclusion of East Kameng in the state government’s ‘Arunachal Rising’ agenda.”
Pointing out the organisation’s own initiative to create a better education scenario in the district by adopting many schools, it urged the state government to post more subject teachers in the district in order to improve the performance of the students.
The EKSWCO also urged the government to retain the services of doctors who have been served transfer orders without relievers, as the district is facing acute shortage of doctors.
Expressing concern over the “transferring of multiple doctors at a time,” EKSWCO chairman Khya Safar Pao said, “It is an unprecedented move taken by the state government, which could create unimaginable hardship to the people.”
