In his address, Lowangdong, who is also adviser to CM, said that the WTP will be built at an estimated Rs 450 lakh.
“It is a central-government project, under the RIDF to provide and augment the existing water supply system to circle headquarters, Longo and adjoining villages, and got approval after long persuasion,” he informed.
