Upper Subansiri 

Union Minister Kiren Rijiju in the presence of Arunachal Pradesh Chief minister Pema Khandu on Friday laid the foundation stones of five major projects in Upper Subansiri District.

The upcoming projects are an eco-fishery park under the Chief Minister’s Challenge and Innovation Fund; a double-storied multipurpose convention hall; a material recovery facility of 5 ton capacity under the solid waste management scheme; improvement of the district headquarters road under the Chief Minister’s Comprehensive Road Programme; and reconstruction of a steel truss bridge over the Sigin river at Daporijo.

During the two-day tour of Upper Subansiri, he was joined by CM Pema Khandu, MLAs Phurpa Tsering, Hayang Mangfi, DW Kharma and Tarin Dakpe, local legislators Nakap Nalo (who is also the tourism minister), Rode Bui, Nyato Dukam and Tanya Soki, besides newly appointed advisor to CM Tapen Siga.

The visit was also marked by the inauguration of the district museum, the newly constructed G+2 school building, and the auditorium of the government higher secondary school in Daporijo, besides laying of foundation for a badminton hall in Sippi, and dedication of the rechristened Tadak Dulom District Hospital along with an oxygen plant to the people of Upper Subansiri. 

Lamenting the very slow progress of the Tato-Taliha road, CM Khandu appealed to the people to keep the general good of the area above personal gains. He was hinting at the reported demand for huge compensation for land by the people of the area.

A day earlier, at Kodak, in a public meeting hosted by Taliha MLA Nyato Dukam, Khandu said that “the demand for creation of a new administrative circle of Lable will be positively considered by the government.”

He asked Dukam to visit Paying circle – which reportedly is still unconnected and no elected representative has ever visited it – to study and understand the ground situation and submit a report to the government.

“If Upper Subansiri has to develop at least at par with the rest of the districts, the mindset and approach of the people should change,” Khandu said, and appealed to civil society bodies to “take the lead.”
