Itagar, Nov 27: Legislative Assembly Speaker T N Thongdok as per the directives of the State government has declared Chingi village, under Kalaktang administrative unit of West Kameng district, as a “model village”. Reportedly, of all the villages under Kalaktang administrative unit, Chingi happens to be the least developed in terms of communication and other essential services. This was one of the prime reasons for being selected as a model village, a report from the DIPRO started here on Monday. With its selection as a model village, the people of Chingi are optimistic regarding the various developments that will take place in the hamlet. Farmers are mainly oriented towards tomato cultivation. Along with farmers, the rest of the Chingians now believe that with the improvement in road connectivity, water supply and electrification, the economy of the area would witness a boom in the coming days. In order to facilitate tomato cultivation on a larger scale in the area, the Speaker has also assured of providing a new road of over four kilometre in length and requisite funding, but with a ceiling of 20 lakh for a kilometer each, the report added.
