Governor visits village near China border
ITANAGAR, Jan 12: Governor BD Mishra today met people at the remote village of Taksing in Upper Subansiri district near the Sino-India border, calling for developing the areas near the international boundary.
Mishra’s advocacy for a composite package for infrastructure development along the international border has borne fruit with the government recently announcing that 53 villages – at least one in each of the 45 border blocks in the state – will be developed as model villages under the Border Area Development Program (BADP).
Today, the former army man said that development will come to every corner of the state through the model village programme.
The governor continued to promote the idea of soil-testing in border villages to assess the possibility of growing walnut and pine nut as he has done in the recent past.
He also urged women to participate in the socio-economic development of the area.
Mishra also gave the cash award of Rs 5000 each for best swachhata abhiyan organizer, best house frontage, and best shop frontage.
On his return trip, the governor met the heads of departments, members of the panchayat and gaon burahs and gaon buris at Daporijo.
He said that development plans and programmes must be based on transparency, accountability, continuity, audit, and review for mid-course correction. He also urged the people to review their concept of land compensation.
