The Arunachal Pradesh Cabinet, on Wednesday, announced the appointment of two Everesters from the state as Adventure Promotion Instructors in the Department of Youth Affairs.
The Cabinet, headed by Chief Minister Pema Khandu, acknowledged the contributions of Tapi Mra and Tine Mena, the first male and female Everester from the state and the Northeast. The two posts were approved in recognition of their pioneering effort and success in the given field, an official communiqué said.
The Cabinet viewed that the mountaineering expertise and experience of the duo would benefit several aspiring youths interested in this field.
In another important decision, the Cabinet formally approved the Arunachal Pradesh Bal Seva Scheme (scheme for support to children orphaned during the COVID-19 pandemic), which was announced by Pema Khandu on May 29.
The Cabinet also approved the renaming of government institutions in the name of prominent personalities of the state who worked relentlessly for the people.
As such, District Hospital Raga has been renamed NidoTechi Hospital Raga, while CHC Bhalukpong has been named after Sinam Dususow. Government Middle School, Ompuli, will now be known as Nabam Takey Residential School, Ompuli.
The Cabinet later reviewed the status of the COVID-19 pandemic and vaccination drive in the state. It also enquired about the status of implementation of e-Office and other important IT initiatives.
While appreciating the IT department for executing the e-Office project on a priority basis, the Cabinet further advised the department to rope in all the left out departments on e-Office at the earliest.
