Palin- Home, RD and IPR Minister Bamang Felix today chaired the high level meeting and review the work progress of Joram-Koloriang Trans Arunachal Highway (TAH) at Panchayat conference Hall here.
Chairing the meeting Felix said that that we have been here to work for the welfare of the people and development of state. We have around 4 dry months in winter and have to properly utilise these four month. Because of the road the entire development progress has been badly affected and the total Kurung Kumey district and few parts of Kra Daadi is like under total lockdown.
This is not the time to give blame on others , it is the time to unite together and support the contractors. Felix said.
We should keep clarity on the action plan on package wise as the work has already been awarded and new contractors has also been appointed.
My only question after this meeting will be with NHIDCL and they has to answer to the government. What ever support is required will be provided and exclusively if a Magistrate required will be given.
As of now this road seems to be only for richman and not for poor as the small and normal vehicle has been facing lots of problem in movement. Felix said.
” I assure that we will give you 100 % support but you fail to comply on your given words as the tender has been awarded to new contractor will dealt seriously”, Felix said.
This is not a new road but we should take up the matter for construction with sufficient tools and plants systematically so that we do not exceed the formation cutting, laying of GSB and carpeting. Felix ask the NHIDCL to give progress detal every 15 days.
A meeting is being held in 1st week of Nov with Chief Secretary with both district administration with regards to any left out compensation issue. Felix added
