Mechukha: Arunachal Pradesh legislative assembly speaker P D Sona on Tuesday called upon the people of Shi-Yomi to stay away from causing obstructions when it comes to implementing government sponsored schemes and developmental programmes in the district.
“Causing unnecessary hindrances when the government tries to implement developmental schemes and programmes not only prevent our area from being developed but also deprive our own people from their rights,” Sona said.
The speaker said this while interacting with the people of 33-Mechukha Assembly Constituency, of which he was on a 3-day tour recently.
The tour was a part of the Booth Sashaktikaran Abhiyan (booth strengthening campaign), an initiative of the BJP to strengthen the party at the booth-level where its performance has been weak in elections since 2012.
Sona during his tour also briefed the people on the Booth Sashaktikaran Abhiyan, its objective and way forward.
He informed that despite the various developmental and welfare initiatives taken by the government, there are many polling stations in the constituency where the BJP received very few votes in the past elections.
He appealed to the voters to not replicate the same and extend their support to the BJP government.
“The BJP government in the Centre under Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the state government under chief minister Pema Khandu are very strong and Arunachal has been witnessing transformational initiatives in all sectors under their leadership,” Sona said.
The Shi-Yomi BJP district president also echoed a similar concern and appealed to the people of the district to support the party for all round development.
He informed that a total of 10 villages from Shi-Yomi were shortlisted by the BJP government for less votes which is a cause of concern.
Sona during his tour also distributed water filters to the cattle herders of the district.
The water filters were distributed as a part of the Centrally Sponsored Scheme of ‘Integrated Development of Wildlife Habitats’, for better protection of wildlife and improvement of habitat.
Meeting with Gaon Buras: Sona on Tuesday participated in a meeting of the Shi-Yomi Gaon Bura Association here.
The speaker, in his address, called upon the Gaon Buras and Buris to work with district administration for the larger interest of the district and its people.
“The roles of GBs are very important as they are the eyes and ears of the government,” the Sona said while suggesting them to extend their help to the administration in solving various local issues of the district.
He also asked the village heads to not be biased and work transparently for the betterment of everyone.
Further expressing serious concern over the growing forest fire cases, garbage and unchecked roaming of stray animals in the township area, the speaker urged the GBs to help the administration in curbing the menace.
Sona also raised concerns over rampant hunting and illegal fishing and asked the administration, forest department and GBs to work together to create awareness among the people and initiate appropriate measures to check the same.
Among others, Shi-Yomi deputy commissioner Mito Dirchi, Mechukha ADC Biaro Sorum and circle officer Honjon Perme spoke and shared their views and ideas.
