Former ZP chairperson Tsering Lhamu flagged off the APSTS’ Lumla-Itanagar Mahindra Xylo taxi service on Sunday. The service has been given to the people of Lumla Assembly constituency as a gift. The Lumla ADC RD Thungon, EAC Tashi Dhondup, HoDs, and others were present at the function.
Lhamu, speaking on the occasion said that the direct SUV service from Lumla to the state capital will act as a boon for the locals as it will save time, labour and money of the passengers. “Earlier, one had to travel all the way to Tawang, then lodge and dine in a hotel after booking a ticket, causing financial and physical strain on the commuters, especially the patients referred for treatment”, she explained.
“Now they can confirm their tickets through a simple phone call and get travelling from their doorsteps, for which I am highly grateful to Tourism Minister Nakap Nalo and APSTS General Manager PN Thungon for looking after the grievances of this landlocked region,” she added.
