Itanagar: Arunachal Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein on Monday said the state government was giving special attention to the development of infrastructure in the border areas of the state.

“The construction of a Trans-Arunachal Highway is going on in full swing while the government would also develop three model villages in border areas, one each in eastern, central and western zones. Micro-hydel projects would also be developed at places where electricity supply does not reach through the power grid due to difficult terrain,” Mein said.

The deputy chief minister was addressing a gathering after inaugurating the office of the superintendent of police at Hawai in Anjaw district.

Appealing to the people to cooperate with government agencies in smooth construction of roads in the border areas, Mein said “all other developments will follow once a place is connected through proper roads”.

He further asked the Anjaw deputy commissioner to expedite the process of land compensation to start the road construction work at the earliest. 

Taking cognizance of the poor mobile network at Hawai, Mein assured installation of smart monopoles (street poles with multi telecommunication functions) in the district headquarters to boost telecommunication connectivity of the area.

The Deputy CM later also inaugurated a fire station.

Arunachal Home Minister Bamang Felix, in his address, sought the cooperation of the people in maintaining peace in the district.

“The police alone cannot control the law and order situation unless there is support from the public and society,” he said.

Local MLA Dasanglu Pul submitted a memorandum to the Deputy CM requesting funds for construction of a multi-purpose hall-cum-badminton stadium at Khupa, quarters for the SP, deputy and Hawai police station officer-in-charge, police outpost at Walong, installation mobile towers at Hawai and Walong, among others.

Director General of Police R P Upadhyaya, Anjaw deputy commissioner Talo Jerang and SP Neha Yadav also spoke on the occasion.
