DOLLUNGMUKH: Raga MLA Tarin Dakpe accompanied by Deputy Commissioner and Superintendent of Police visited Dollungmukh Circle to review ongoing developmental projects and met with the HoDs and village heads on Monday.
He inspected the halted NEC road project from Dollungmukh to Tamin, Primary Health Centre (PHC), Kerbari, Dolum Kro Bridge which is under construction and interacted with villagers of Paro village and visited the Indian Air Force Firing Range.
Speaking to media persons on the present status of the Dollungmukh to Tamin road, Dakpe said that during reassessment and revised estimation of the work it was found that the construction price is a bit high. The construction for the 107-km stretch started in 2008-09.
“Due to the delay in submission of revised estimation in time, the work is halted as of now but only around 37-km stretch remains to be cleared,” Dakpe said adding that he would appraise Chief Minister Pema Khandu for earliest clearance as the road is the only lifeline of the newborn district. He also informed that the road construction is under a NEC scheme. On the scarcity of drinking water at Paro village and electricity in Kerbari Primary Health Centre (PHC) Dakpe said, “The water tank has already been completed and only connection of pipelines is needed to be done.”
He said that a sub-power station will be constructed in Dollungmukh. Once the station is competed, there won’t be any problem of electricity in the circle. When asked on his approach for the safety of people in and around Indian Air Force Firing Range (IAF-FR), Dakpe said that in the last few years, many cases has been reported on human casualty due to the bombarding. “I will try best to shift the firing range to another place or at least make sure no one gets hurt during the firing practice” he said.
Meanwhile, he also asked the contractor to complete the Dolum Kro bridge at the earliest as it is the only alternate lifeline for means of transportation. He said that the quality of work should not be compromised. Earlier, Dakpe also visited VKV School, Dollungmukh and spoke with the teachers and students. Later he had a brief discussion with the NHPC general manager about the status of the Subansiri Hydro Project.
