Itanagar, July 9: Bogong Banggo Kebang (BBK), the highest decision making body of the Adi community has expressed their resentment over the proposal of establishment of Jawahar Navadoya Vidyalaya and a polytechnic college within the vicinity of the Jawaharlal Nehru College (JNC) at Pasighat in East Siang district.
The BBK in a communiqué on Monday said that the development activities should be people oriented and people friendly.
“The Government should not establish its projects against the sentiments of the people just for fulfillment of wishes of some persons with vested interests. The State government should remember that the land donated by the Bogong Banggo was only for the establishment of a college and its expansion but not for the implementation of other new projects,” it said.
Informing about availability of land within Pasighat, the BBK suggested that the government should properly utilize the land earmarked for expansion of the college in near future and shift the JNV and Polytechnic College to any other place within the township.
It appealed to the government to reconsider its proposal immediately and added that the elected representative of the area should also understand the feelings and sentiment of the people and look into the matter seriously.
Earlier, BBK had submitted several representations to State government and the concerned department over the establishment of JNV and Polytechnic College, especially within the JN College campus.
