ITANAGAR, July 4: Agriculture minister, Gabriel D Wangsu, currently on a two-day visit to Ziro, inspected India's first Integrated Aqua Park and Aqua Museum at Tarin, spanning 10 hectares in the picturesque Ziro valley of Lower Subansiri district.

The Aquatic Park is slated to be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The minister expressed satisfaction with the project's progress but raised concerns about meeting the August month-end deadline.

In response, the executing agency assured him that 95% of the work is complete, with ample manpower deployed to expedite the remaining tasks urgently.

Fisheries director, Joyshil Taba, suggested enhancing the arena's aesthetic appeal before the formal inauguration, a suggestion supported by the minister, emphasizing that beautification would boost tourism and local economic growth.

During his visit, Wangsu also toured a piggery farm, dairy farm, and bio-fertilizer plant, engaging with staff and heads of departments.

Accompanying him were former minister Tage Taki, fisheries secretary Hage Tadi and Lower Subansiri deputy commissioner Vivek H P.

Later in the day, the minister convened an interaction-cum-review meeting with HoDs from various departments to strategize future actions for overall departmental and state progress.

He urged them to expedite pending projects for timely completion without compromising quality, assuring personal oversight and support.

Wangsu is scheduled to attend the annual Central Dree Festival in Ziro on Friday.
