W/Siang admin works out services delivery
The West Siang district administration has worked out modalities to ensure delivery of essential commodities to the consumers throughout the lockdown period.
During a meeting chaired by ADC Liyi Bagra in Aalo on Thursday, it was decided that four departmental vehicles will be requisitioned to transport essential commodities to the sectors and the colonies on a roster basis.
The DFCSO and the market committees will coordinate with the shopkeepers in supplying the commodities.
The ADC has issued strict instruction to locate students, labourers and traders who have entered the district in the past two weeks, in order for them to be quarantined and kept under observation for a fortnight.
The lockdown in the district is being observed. Several villages are performing rituals to ward off the coronavirus, while fencing has been erected at some villages and sectors to ban the entry of vehicles and people.
The Paktu Ao Youth Welfare Association, which has volunteered to assist the administration, will also be engaged in various duties. (DIPROs)
