KHIRMU, Mar 4: Villagers from Nahmhed, Bomdir, Wodkhyer, Langpo-tse and Khirmu benefitted from the Sarkar Aapke Dwar (SAD) camp organised here on Monday by the Tawang district administration.
The camp was inaugurated by DC (in-charge) Dochora Lama, who informed that Tawang has been ranked sixth among the districts in the country in terms of rural sanitation.
“It is a matter of pride, but at the same time we have to continue with maintaining the surroundings clean and do better in near future,” he said.
He also informed the villagers about Tawang district winning the gold medal from the state government “for its sincere efforts in delivering services to the villagers of far-flung areas.”
Lama later felicitated the toppers of the primary and the upper primary schools (UPS) of Khirmu, and handed over a science kit to the teacher in charge of the UPS. He also gave away three power tillers to the beneficiaries under the CM’s Sashakt Kisan Yojana, besides grafted walnut plants to 20 horticulture farmers.
The walnut plants, brought from Srinagar, are worth Rs 700 per plant, HDO Koncho Gyatso informed. Free vegetable seeds were also handed over to the GBs, to be distributed among the villagers.
Forty-five government departments took part in the camp, which benefitted over 1000 villagers.
