Itagar, April 22: Aruchal Pradesh Deputy chief minister Chow Mein has called for creation of visible infrastructure and assets instead of piecemeal allocation of funds to individual schemes. He was emphasizing equal distribution of development funds across all districts and constituencies at a prelimiry meeting of PWD State Annual Development Agenda (SASA), previously called Annual Operating Plan (AOP), with parliamentary secretary for PWD Techi Kaso and chief engineers of the department at his official residence here on Friday, an official report iformed. Mein said that the department will from this year not wait for the State Development Council meeting to execute works but will start work soon after the filization of SADA. However, he said that schemes should be prepared within the budget allocation and cautioned against overlapping or duplication of schemes.
He told officials that the fince department has already directed all other departments to prepare SADA/AOP on or before May 10 and to submit it for vetting. “This working system has been implemented in line with the Central government’s style of working so that the developmental schemes/projects are implemented maintaining a proper time frame. With this system, the hassle of March-end would be reduced and this would also help check corruption to some extent,” the deputy CM said.
Parliamentary secretary Kaso called for keeping funds available for construction of CC pavements in remaining sector roads, bridges and draige system in the capital region. “If good works start from the capital, it will surely spread to the districts too,” he said. Kaso also discouraged sanctioning of individual schemes and to take up schemes for common masses that will benefit all. He further pitched for construction of septic tanks in sectors.
PWD chief engineers K Waghe (Western Zone), Hage Appa (Central Zone A) and assistant engineer (design and planning) Tumken Ete attended the meeting, the report added.
