Over 70% of rural habitations in the state are still without proper sanitation facilities and nearly 65% without adequate drinking water provision. Without access to safe potable drinking water and proper sanitation to the people sustainable development may thus not be possible, the Governor said.

Linking sanitation is to economic up-liftment, he said, the State cannot achieve real development, if its people, particularly in rural areas, continue to live in an unhealthy and unclean surroundings lacking in access to safe potable drinking water and proper sanitation facilities, which may thus cause serious impact on the health of the population.

He requested the officers, especially the DHOs to prepare schemes with right perspective and submit the projects to the government for consideration. However, he cautioned that the schemes should be implemented with a “People First” motto, as envisaged by present government.

The fund allocation to the department from the State Plan is very meagre considering the importance of horticulture sector, he observed and assured that he would pursue the matter with the Chief Minister for more fund allocations so that the Horticulture can be made a vibrant sector for rural economic uplift.

Poor infrastructure, fund crunch hit oldest APST services in Tirap

Bishnu Rana

ROING, Nov 24: The Arunachal Pradesh State Transport(APST) station at Khonsa has not been coming up to the expectation of the people due to lack of fund for maintenance.

Established in 1975 under the then Tirap Frontier Track, the APST Khonsa supposed to expand and improve its services in interior district. But unfortunately it failed to give its best due to various reasons. The bus station with its workshop just at the NH-52 road side gives an ugly look to the township.

However, the department  acquired a well-developed space at the heart of the township. What the department needs is funds to make a full- flagged parking place for the buses and build up a booking counter for the larger benefit of the passengers. Despite the APST buses ferry the passengers through  the various route such as Lazu, Pongchow, Kanubari, Longding, Konu-Konsa, Wakka-Khannu, Soha, Deomali, Itanagar, Dibrugarh and Tinsukia, fund crunch becomes a problem to repair the old buses to provide effective service, according to department sources.  

“Actually we have total fleet strength of 25 buses in this station but at present only 10 is running and remaining 15 are off the road following serious technical snag. Most of them are old buses and thus required huge maintenance cost which is beyond our capacity,”  revealed N Wangsa SS.

The higher authorities should take measures to minimise the fund crisis and help the station to  achieve the annual revenue target by providing fund to repair the old buses and improve the bus service, said the sources.

Heavenly prices and roads of Capital of Arunachal

Tongam Rina

The typical arm chair journalist that she is, yours truly dreads going out. Two reasons add to it.  One is the rising price of essential commodities and other is the congested roads. Added to the congested road is the garbage, which makes Capital Region looks like an extended trash can.

Departments have inundated the citizens with notices after notices on these issues, forgetting the fact that Arunachalees have a not so credible record of ever translating those in papers into reality. They just make good reading.

Now when the department cannot deliver on its own, it is for the citizens to ensure that it happens.

However, we love our reputation of being nonchalant and would rather not do anything to bring any blemish.

Let us take an instance of the garbage management in the Capital Region. The Department of Urban Development trucks dutifully pick up the dirt from designated garbage areas. However, by the time, it finishes its rounds, dirt again pile up. This time, we have no one to blame but us!

Anyways, as long as our rooms are clean how does it matter, whether other parts of the house stinks! We can live with it.

We will continue to hurl the waste from our windows while ensuring that it misses the target!  Poor trashcans!

For no reason, Jairam Ramesh, Minister with Foot in Mouth said India could win a Nobel Prize for Filth. Capital town of Arunachal could send in its nomination.

Even the road, which Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu takes everyday is not spared. One would have wanted that at least he be spared from that dreadful sight and smell.

 These days, when you are late, you can always blame it to the traffic jamming. After the elections, the numbers of vehicles have risen, though this claim is not substantiated with official record. Lives are lost and some live with the scar of a lifetime. We continue to live with it until someone close is a victim.

Dependent that we are, we need someone to remind us that it unsafe to drive rash and that we need helmets. Dependency syndrome hardly ever changes.

Going to vegetable market is another nightmare. This time, it is not the dirt that is scary. Prices! Wonder whether a daily wage earner had a taste of tomato or onion and potatoes, off late. Tomato is Rs 60 a KG while onion is cool Rs 40. That is as much a daily wage labourer earns in a day.

Why is district administration tight lipped? Maybe the Vegetable lobby in Capital is too strong!!

The prices, once it enter Arunachal multiples itself because there are no mechanism to check it.  To top it all the prices are not uniform.  Maybe it does not pinch the right people but it does to ordinary citizens.

But was not the proceedings in parliament stalled over the issue of price rise! Maybe our esteemed 60 could take some lessons from them.

Maybe yours truly would ask a salary hike from the management to run the kitchen to ensure that plain tomato salad is part of her regular diet.
