AALO, Dec 7: Power (Elect), Tourism and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Jarbom Gamlin said that top priority of the present government would be on infrastructure development of the education sector. He was addressing people at Yomcha and Darak in his home constituency Liromoba in West Siang district yesterday. Taking initiatives in this regard, Gamlin informed that school buildings, hostels and teachers’ quarters for Liromoba were being taken up this financial year under the Special Plan Assistance (SPA). The infrastructure development in Liromoba would be followed by similar development in Yomcha, Darak and Kamba in a phased manner, he said.
Citing lack of surface communication as one of the main problems in the constituency, Gamlin informed that the now problem was being tackled by the government. He said that with the circle headquarters connected with major roads sanctioned under PMGSY and works in full swing, surface communication is almost complete in the area. Only the inter-village roads are to be sanctioned and constructed, which would be done soon, he said.
In one of the public meetings, Gamlin appealed to the people not to propose individual-based schemes for sanction under the MLAD Fund but for creating public utility assets. He cautioned that all schemes taken up under the fund would be monitored before, during and after completion of the works by concerned departments to assure quality.
Meanwhile, he informed that the Darak Health Sub-Centre notified as Primary Health Centre would start functioning from April 2010 and urged all government employees to stay at their places of posting. THE SENTINEL
