ITANAGAR, Dec 5: Tali MLA Markio Tado stated that he was very much concerned about
the development of newly created Kra Daadi district and his constituency.
Replying to the concern raised by All Kra Daadi District Students Union (AKKDSU)

Tado in a press statement claimed that all the ongoing developmental projects including
road connectivity works were under construction at this point of time by the implementing
“Being the people’s representative, I am in constant touch with the implementing
agencies and the people of my constituency for the issues of area,” he said.
Admitting that the district requires many more infrastructures, which are yet to
be created, the MLA said that fund is needed for taking up new developmental projects
and schemes. But, for the last two years, there has been no new scheme taken up by
the Tuki government. The present leadership is gripped by financial mismanagement
and crisis due to which it is unable to take smooth developmental activities from
time to time, the MLA said.
“And this is for very reason I am camping at New Delhi for change in leadership,
so that our state will not suffer financial crisis and lack of developmental activities
for the greater interest of people of the state,” the MLA said.
Tado alleged that there has been massive financial mismanagement by the present state
government that has led to deprivation of developmental activities not only in his
constituency, but whole of the state.
“What we have witnessed as a minister, parliamentary secretaries, MLAs and as chairman
in the Tuki led government since last four years is that the state is running through
financial crisis after Tuki took over as chief minister and finance minister.
The financial position of the state is deteriorating, declining and has plunged downward
during the reign of Tuki. During his reign as finance and planning minister, the
state severely faced overdraft successively for the last two financial years.
As a result, the state govt is running two years of financial backlog and deficit.
The central sponsored schemes (CSS) of 2013-14 and 2014-15, and other flagship programme
projects of government of India are still pending for payment and execution of the
projects—despite release of funds from the centre,” he alleged.
