Ering takes stock of developmental activities

PASIGHAT, 11 Feb: Pasighat West MLA Ninong Ering, along with East Siang DC Tayi Taggu, Bilat CO TD Bapu, PRI leaders, and GBs on Saturday inspected the under-construction Mirem-Mikong-Jonai road, the Pasighat-Ledum-Tene road, and bridges.

Ering instructed the construction agencies to “strictly maintain the quality as per DPR and complete the project in time and ensure durability.”

Later, addressing a public meeting in Mirem, Ering said that “the governance reforms undertaken in recent times by Chief Minister Pema Khandu have been unprecedented in economic growth and prosperity of the state, and therefore politics should not be used as hindrance to development.”

He expressed hope that the recent amicable resolution of the boundary issues between East Siang and

┬áneighbouring Assam would “usher in a new era of development.”

Informing that priority would be accorded to education, health, drinking water supply, electricity supply, irrigation, and road connectivity, the MLA said that “most of the projects have high degree of readiness and a few are already under implementation.”

He advised the people to “take good care of education of their children and be vigilant against drug abuse among the school-going children.”

The MLA instructed the DC and the local officers to “ensure smooth delivery of all people-oriented services.” He also stressed on hiking the wages/salaries of anganwadi workers and vocational teachers, and assured to “raise the issue at the appropriate level.”

Earlier in the day, the MLA and the DC inaugurated a Seva Aapke Dwar camp in Mirem, where 26 government departments provided doorstep services to the people. (DIPRO)
