Itanagar, April 16: Borduria-Bogapani MLA Wanglin Lowangdong has appealed to the State government to bring Tirap and Longding districts under a tourist circuit for the growth of the rural economy and the benefit of the people of the two districts. After inaugurating a 15-room eco-tourist lodge here on Sunday, Lowangdong said, “Though the Central government is giving more importance to the tourism sector, Tirap and Longding districts are being deprived of the tourism facilities due to the non-inclusion of both districts under a tourist circuit.”
The MLA expressed hope that the eco-tourist lodge would help reduce unemployment among the educated youth and encourage them to involve in the tourism sector.
Tirap Deputy Commissioner PN Thungon said, “The eco-tourist guest house is one of the biggest assets for the people of Tirap district.” He appealed to the district legislator to initiate steps for the inclusion of Tirap under a tourist circuit.
Khonsa West MLA Tirong Aboh said creating a Tirap-Longding tourist circuit would help the local traders, businessmen and educated unemployed youth.
Khonsa East MLA Wanglam Sawin assured of taking steps to bring Tirap and Longding districts under a tourist circuit, an official release stated on Monday.
