MP Tapir Gao

Roing: Lok Sabha MP Tapir Gao on Friday called upon all the elected representatives to work as ‘Team Arunachal’ to ensure wider coverage of Centrally Sponsored Schemes (CSS) in the state.

“No individual should be deprived of the benefits due to lack of information dissemination and knowledge about welfare schemes. Everyone has to work in an energetic and responsible manner for our people who have put their trust on the government,” Gao said.

The MP was addressing the district development coordination and monitoring committee (DISHA) meeting for Eastern Arunachal at the district headquarters here.

Gao emphasized on proper implementation of welfare schemes like PM Matru Vandana Yojana, Janani Suraksha Yojana, Dulari Kanya Yojana, etc. which have been put in place to benefit the womenfolk and children and those which provide social assistance and help in poverty alleviation.

He further stressed on timely updation of data in the respective ministry’s web portal so as to reflect the true progress of work done in each district and to ensure the continuation of fund allocation under the schemes.

Gao also asked the elected representatives to take the DISHA meeting as an opportunity to put in a collective effort to correct the mistakes made and streamline the development efforts going on in the districts.

MLAs Laisam Simai, Jummum Ete Deori, Dasanglu Pul, Gabriel D Wangsu, Somlung Mossang, Tangpho Wangnaw and Mutchu Mithi stressed on the need to improve the services provided by the banks, especially the State Bank of India and the need to open additional branches of the bank.

“Most of the CSS are credit linked schemes and the banks are delaying or rejecting the applications which in turn is hampering in the implementation process,” the legislators opined.

The deputy commissioners present highlighted the performance of their respective districts with regards to implementation of schemes like MGNREGA, PMAY, NSAP, JJM, Ayushmann Bharat, Health and Wellness Centre, etc.

Earlier, rural development director Kego Jilen gave a presentation on the implementation of several Central schemes in the state while Dhirendra Kumar, a representative of the Ministry of Rural Development presented the findings of the ministry’s monitoring team during their visit to the districts.
