Itanagar: Arunachal Pradesh Legislative Assembly Speaker P D Sona has asked the government officers of Shi-Yomi district to work in unison for the development of the newly created district.
Sona said this while chairing a meeting with the heads of various government departments at Mechuka, an official release informed here on Saturday.
“There will be lots of shortcomings and challenges for officials posted in the new district,” Sona said, and urged the officers to overcome the challenges and work in the greater interest of the district.
Stressing on proper planning to develop Shi-Yomi as a model district, Sona said every department should contribute towards the goal. “Structures should be constructed only after finalization of the detailed plans, in order to avoid future complicacies,” he said.
Assuring the officers of all possible help from his end, Sona called for coordinated efforts by every government official to fulfill the aspirations of the district’s people. He also asked government officials, especially HoDs, not to leave their places of posting.
“Absence of government officers not only causes public inconvenience but also hampers developmental activities undertaken by the government,” he said and suggested them to go to schools in their free time and help the needy students in their studies. Emphasizing on development of the agriculture and horticulture sectors in the district, the speaker asked the departments concerned to create awareness among the farmers about cash crops and guide them on how to grow such crops.
Sona also expressed serious concern over the rampant killing of wild animals, especially endangered species, in the district, and told the forest department to check such activities and “create rigorous awareness among the villagers.”
He further asked the departments to ensure quality of work and timely completion of projects.
