Rajkhowa disappointed over Aruchal Bhavan's condition
FROM OUT CORRESPONDENT
Itagar, May 7: Governor J P Rajkhowa, during a surprise visit to the Aruchal Pradesh Bhavan here on Thursday expressed extreme disappointment over its pathetic condition.
Continuing his effort in providing proper shape to all the state government infrastructures outside the state for the benefits of the people of the state and students pursuing their studies in that state, the governor toured the bhavan accompanied by first lady Rita Rajkhowa.
Rajhkowa expressed surprise that such valuable property (about 10,000 sq feet as reported by the USR director, on the second floor of the ten storied building) has not been brought to proper use.
After having a thorough look of the area, the governor noted that the condition of the rooms and surrounding area was filthy, unhygienic and not fully completed and also there was a shortage of water while most of the basic electrical appliances were non-operatiol.
He also noted that there was no sign board outside the building and also inside at the entrance to the Aruchal Bhavan portion of the second floor thereby making it difficult for the people coming from the state as well from outside to locate the so called Aruchal Bhavan.
The governor instantly asked the builder to fix a big size board and also a sign board in the entry to the bhavan portion immediately which the latter agreed to do.
Rajkhowa instantly asked the USR director Sarain Zacharia to look into the matter at the earliest and provide at least the basic facilities to the people without any delay.
It was further found that fortutely there is a room reserved for the government officer/ in-charge of the bhavan only with a single bedroom accommodation for the officer. Presently there is neither responsible gazetted officer nor any other official from the state government to look after the progress on the matter stated above nor for to the patients suffering from the cancer and other of several diseases.
The governor further suggested for posting of senior administrative and tourism officials from the state to expedite the process in establishing it into a useful facility to promote state tourism and to provide accommodation to government officials and general public, particularly patients from the state. Rajkhowa also wished that the state government take necessary action immediately in this direction.
