Minister Felix: Depriving Beneficiaries of their Rights Crime Against Humanity


Arunachal Pradesh Home Minister Bamang Felix on Tuesday said that depriving eligible beneficiaries of their rights and benefits is a crime against humanity.

He further directed the HoDs of Kurung Kumey district to reach out to the last of the beneficiaries of various central and state government flagship programmes.

The minister reviewed the implementation of all PM and CM flagship programmes in Nyapin assembly constituency. The review meeting was held at the SDO office in Pokriang and was attended by HoDs, representatives of the NHIDCL and the SBI, and PRI leaders.

Minister Felix expressed his displeasure with the low enrolment of qualified beneficiaries in a few central and state flagship programmes, and urged all officers involved to take rectification steps and make progress before the next review meeting, which will be conducted next month.

The minister emphasised the importance of field visits, saying that authorities should not rely on beneficiaries to show up and instead make it a point to reach out to the qualified beneficiaries wherever required.

He further directed the Kurung Kumey deputy commissioner to conduct HoD review meetings every fortnight and report its progress and achievements for the e-pragati meetings which are held every month by Chief Minister Pema Khandu.

Minister Felix also asked the HoDs to involve the PRI members in every beneficiary-oriented scheme.

“HoDs and PRIs should open a communication line and cooperate with each other in identifying and motivating eligible beneficiaries through field visits and awareness initiatives,” he said.

“Our effort should be towards making Kurung Kumey self-reliant by meeting up with the aspirations and expectations of the people,” said Felix.
