MLA urges villagers not to migrate

PENI, Nov 22: Yachuli MLA Likha Saaya on Thursday urged villagers not to migrate from their villages to the capital city.
He said this after inaugurating a cement concrete (CC) road in Peni village in Lower Subansiri district.
“When other people are looking for peace in villages, why are our people more inclined towards city life?” he wondered. “If the villagers and today’s youths don’t prefer to settle in villages, how can there be any development works?”
Saaya added that the state government is more inclined towards developing infrastructure in the rural areas.
Sharing his vision to provide better education, medical facilities and living standard to the villagers, the MLA assured to have a model school established in Peni soon.
“Education is more relevant than indulging in organizational or union activities,” Saaya said, and advised the youths of his constituency to be dedicated to their studies.
He said once better education, healthcare and communication are established, “our constituency and its people will have the best life ever.”
The MLA assured to look into the memorandum submitted by the All Peni Welfare Association, seeking extension of the CC road by about five kilometres, and construction of a multipurpose hall in the village.
The programme was attended also by advocate Likha Tabo, state BJYM general secretary Joram Tat, former ZPM Joram Yania, former ACP Nabam Piju, and others.
