Citizens on verge of starvation as Dibang Valley remains cut off for three months
ITANAGAR, June 1: The Dibang Valley district administration has said that if immediate
steps are not taken to restore road communication, soon the people of the district
will starve in absence of essential commodities.
As the entire Dibang Valley District remained cut off from the rest of the world
for more than three months due to land road disruption and washing out of bridge
following heavy landslides and unprecedented flash floods people of the district
continue to face hardships for constraints of movement and chronic shortage of all
essential commodities. The situation is so bad that traders in Anini township have
shut their shops.
The Deputy Commissioner Tayor Jampen said that there will be no solution to the present
situation, until and unless, the Roing-Anini road blockades are cleared and the Bailey
Bridge over Dri river which was washed out is constructed immediately. Though limited
quantity of food grains have been airlifted to the District Headquarter Anini, it
will not solve the food crisis of Etalin, Arzoo, Anelih and Malinye as these circles
are cut off too from all sides.
The Deputy Commissioner said that neither the Border Roads Organization (BRO) has
put extra efforts for restoration of communication nor the agency has been impressed
upon by the appropriate authority.
He further said that BRO and concerned authorities should have been impressed upon
by appropriate authority for immediate action considering the sufferings of the people
who are at the verge of starvation as they solely depend on outside supplies and
also considering the strategic location of the district. Further delay in taking
appropriate action will further aggravate the unpleasant situation and it will go
beyond the control of the district administration as in spite of making all possible
efforts, there have been threats of bandh calls and strikes by the general public
and student community.
For chronic shortage of all basic human needs, the govt. officers and officials,
who had gone out of the District are reluctant to come back to Anini for which works
of public interests in the district is badly hampered.
According to messages reaching this daily, three people are reported to have died
during this one and half month long impasse. Two elderly women, one from Anaya and
another from Arzoo village is reported to have died for lack of proper nutrition.
The third, a middle aged man, died after falling sick as life saving drugs weren’t
Despite the worsening situation, early restoration of road is being hampered due
to lack of heavy equipments like bulldozers and crusher machines. This was informed
by OC, GREF in a meeting held yesterday.
AIMSU secretary Rajiv Mihu and Dibang Valley Zilla Chairperson Empi Meya reportedly
had gathered at OC’s office yesterday to take stock of restoration work by the BRO.
A request for airlifting of these heavy equipments has been made to the Air Force,
“If equipments are airlifted at the earliest, it might take 15 days for Anini-Etalin
road to get restored.”
The assurance however fell flat, when OC, sounding precautious said, “All these work
can resume only if weather clears.”
