Inaugurating the Mela amid cheer and applause, Kiren Rijiju, Minister of State for Home Affairs said that the govt of India has embarked upon the biggest health insurance scheme in the world to provide Rs. 5 lacs annually to each patient involving 50 crore people in India.

All out effort is being made to streamline the health delivery system to the doorsteps of poor and needy people free of cost so that they do not reel under pains and agonies for want of medical treatments outside.

The MOS who travelled Itanagar-Ziro-Daporijo-Aalo-Pangin by road expressed his total dismay over the pathetic roads condition within these long stretches and disclosed that govt. in the centre has done its duty to work out comprehensive packages for road developments in this region way back in 2008 when he was elected as MP and reviewed it with state Chief Minister, Ministers, MLAs of the respective districts to quicken up the pace of road works after assuming post of State Minister for Home in 2012.

The time taken to give needful clearances, anomalies in working out the land compensations and wastage of crores of rupees are coming out as stumbling block in the timely completion of road works in many places of the state and assured to take up the matter with the state govt. soon.

Water scarcity in Aalo town is one of the key issue that preys the mind of dwellers and an ambitious proposal sent by the state govt. is being taken due care, he said.
