Govt Committed to Provide Road Connectivity to All: CM Pema Khandu

Arunachal Pradesh CM Pema Khandu said that the government is committed to provide road connectivity, while on a visit to Upper Subansiri district on Friday. He further acknowledged the hardship faced by the people of the district due to the delay in the construction of the Trans-Arunachal Highway connecting Upper Subansiri with Likabali and Ziro.

He said  that all hurdles that are causing delay in the construction of the highway will be resolved soon. “All hurdles will be resolved, and if any corruption is proved, no one will be spared,” Khandu said during a public meeting.

He said that the Potin-Pangin stretch of the highway was mired in several issues, including corruption in payment of land compensation. “The central government divided the stretch into nine packages, which have been tendered and work has already started,” he said.

Stating that “Package 5 is facing some hurdles,” the chief minister assured to take up the matter with the department concerned at the earliest.

He also assured to provide funds for giving Daporijo township a facelift, with a caution that “anybody found misusing funds will be dealt with strictly.”

Responding to a memorandum submitted by local MLA Tanya Soki, Khandu expressed appreciation for the proposal for a proper drainage system and widening of all township roads and streets. He said that the proposal, “when executed efficiently,” would help in beautification of the picturesque town on the banks of the Subansiri river.

The CM appealed to the people to keep the town clean. “We all miss the old Daporijo that we knew and loved. With a properly covered drainage system, the narrow streets would widen, but you need to keep your town clean and free of garbage to restore its glory,” he said.

He assured to provide funds for augmentation of the township’s water supply plant, when he was informed that the existing plant is unable to meet the entire town’s needs.
