‘Officers, staffs will be sent to assigned place of posting’

KHIMYANG, Aug 6: Changlang DC RK Sharma said all the officers and staffs who have been assigned to serve in Khimyang circle will be sent here within this month.
The DC said this during a coordination meeting with HoDs and the people of Changlang North assembly constituency here in Changlang district on Monday.
The meeting was held to review the developmental activities being carried out in the constituency, and to learn about the public’s grievances and their proposals for speedy development of the circle.
Sharma said the BDO office in the Khimyang CD block should be shifted to the circle headquarters, which is currently operating from district headquarters Changlang.
Expressing concern over the low success rate of central and state livelihood schemes, the DC urged the implementing agencies to “assist the beneficiaries till the schemes are grounded totally.”
Earlier, Changlang South MLA Phosum Khimhun urged the HoDs to direct their officials and staffs posted to Khimyang to be stationed here, adding that “developmental works are hampered due to non-deliverance of official duties at optimum level.”
Informing that modern facilities like internet, mobile tower, all-weather road, electricity and water supply, government quarters, etc, are available here, he said “there is no point of government servants staying in the district headquarters when they are posted against Khimyang circle.”
Expressing concern over the hardships faced by the villagers of Khimyang and nearby villages in travelling outside the circle, the MLA asked the state transport station superintendent to immediately resume the Changlang-Khimyang bus service.
Khimhun also lamented the poor education of students owing to teachers’ absenteeism in most schools of the constituency, and asked the education department to “take stringent action against irregular teachers jeopardizing the children’s future.”
He also advocated removing “non-performing anganwadi workers and ASHAs” in his constituency, and advised the villagers to get registered under the Chief Minister’s Arogya Arunachal Yojana.
Khimyang EAC Todak Riba enumerated the difficulties that the local administration faces due to the absence of officials and staffs in the circle headquarters. He also asked the APSTS to run regular Tata Sumo taxi service to Khimyang, and called for regular allotment of rice against the fair price shops here.
Earlier, several public leaders of the constituency stressed on permanent stationing of officers and staffs in the circle headquarters, besides repairing or roads, bus service to Khimyang, and such. (DIPRO)
