Honchun Ngandam, Minister for Rural Works Department and Prime Minister’s Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY), called on the Governor today, on 21st August 2019 at Raj Bhavan, Itanagar.

The Minister apprised the Governor regarding the much needed construction of the road from Miao to Vijoynagar in Changlang District.

They discussed the national importance of the Road and also the Roads importance for the people located in the far flung areas on the international border of India and Myanmar.

It was appreciated that with the construction of this road there will also be substantial care and improvement of flora and fauna in Namdapha National Park. There will also be effective surveillance and control on poaching activity, if any, in the area.

They also discussed that the safe animal passages and corridors for the free movement of animals within the park should be fully protected. It was also highlighted that like the other National Parks of the country viz. Kaziranga National Park, Assam, Corbett National Park, U.P., Madu Malai National Park in Tamil Nadu, Bandipur National Park in Karnataka  and many other parks in the country careful and controlled movement of vehicles will become complimentary to the upkeep of the wildlife.

It was also highlighted that the road between Miao and Vijoynagar has been in existence for a very long time. It was used for vehicular traffic as early as in 1975 by the then Lt. Governor KAA Raja, but over a period of time, due to non maintenance of the road, it has become unusable and at many places the road has been washed away.

This, in the public interest and in the wider interest of the national security, calls for a well thought out plan for reconstruction in keeping with the existing provisions of various rules, regulations, Acts and Bye laws on the subject.

The emphasis during the discussion was on speedy construction of the Miao-Vijoynagar Road as per the stipulated specifications and its early completion preferably by the end of the current financial year.
