Gov calls for timely fund allocation

ITANAGAR, Nov 17: Governor BD Mishra has emphasized on timely allocation of fund to the departments concerned for carrying out developmental works, “in order to avoid last-minute rush of release of funds at the close of the financial year.”
He said this during a meeting with Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein and Civil Supplies Minister Kamlung Mossang when the two called on him at the Raj Bhavan here on Sunday. They reviewed developmental projects, law and order issues, and civil supplies, including for Vijoynagar, in the state.
Mishra also emphasized the need for a strong mechanism to prevent leakage of the allocated public money. He has already communicated to the State Public Accounts Committee Chairman, MLA Ninong Ering, regarding the matter.
Reiterating the need for proper monitoring and implementation of projects, the governor suggested conducting regular review meetings to ensure speedy progress of projects, “particularly the road projects.”
Discussing the recent law and order problems in the eastern part of the state, the governor advised the DCM to “further strengthen the age-old amity and goodwill among the people from different communities in the state.”
He also advised the civil supplies minister to streamline the public distribution system, “so that every citizen of the state, particularly those in remote areas like Taksing, Monigong, Chaglagam and Vijoynagar, get regular supplies of essential commodities.”
Mein briefed the governor on various projects which have already been implemented, and on the different stages of some of the vital ongoing state- and centrally-sponsored projects. (Raj Bhavan)
