The team also met DC East Siang district Dr. Kinny Singh on Friday and appealed to her to sanction villagers for immediate flood control work from DC’s untied funds.

Pabin also urged Mebo MLA Lombo Tayeng to do emergency flood control work under his capacity to stop large scale soil erosion by Siang river. 

The state BJP Disaster Management cell also paid a visit to flood affected Namsai and Tezu in Eastern Arunachal. 

“I will submit my report to the state Chief Minister for funding to start emergency flood control at Borguli, Sigar and Seram villages including other areas of flood affected eastern Arunachal Pradesh “, said Pabin.

Meanwhile, SEEANG group led by Group Captain (retired), Mohonto Pangging Pao along with Namsing villagers constructed bamboo porcupines for protection of Mebo-Dhola road at Seram village under Mebo subdivision in order to protect the erosion of Mebo-Dhola road which is closed to be washed away by flooding Siang river. 

“Siang levels have been highest this season and lower Monggu Banggo people are worried of yet another wash out of major portion of road from Seram village side after two portions of same Mebo-Dhola road was washed away last year from New Borguli and Namsing side as few more weeks of rain are still left of monsoon”, said Mohonto Pangging Pao, Secretary General, SEEANG.

Viewing the overall damages from monsoon triggered floods this year, the state and central government need to sanction adequate funds to prevent more damages  and for restoration works.
