Denlo village under Koronu circle in Lower Dibang Valley district has been adopted as model village under the Chief Minister’s Adarsh Gram Yojana for 43rd the Roing Assembly Constituency.
To implement the first phase of works identified by villagers through Gram Sabha, an interactive meeting with MLA Mutchu Mithi, deputy commissioner Mitali Namchoom and all the concerned HoDs and villagers was held on Monday at Denlo.
It was decided that priority would be given to the education and health sectors and intra-village road with the first installment of funds provided by the government.
MLA Mithi also committed to earmark funds from MLALAD for critical gap funding to make Denlo a true model village. All were appreciative of a villager who came forward to voluntarily donate 2500 square meters of land for the establishment of a new health unit at Denlo, which has already been notified by the state government.
Mithi advised all to work together with a united and concentrated effort for the development of the village as projects were prioritized according to the needs and suggestions provided by the people of the village. He said that the selection of Denlo village as a model village was the fulfillment of a promise he had made to the villagers to solve their problems of access to drinking water, basic healthcare and educational facilities.
DC Namchoom congratulated the villagers on Denlo being chosen as model village and said the model village tag should not be only in paper but that development should truly come and asset creation in sectors like education, health, power supply, water supply, roads should be concentrated upon.
The DC also asked the villagers to concentrate on the education and schooling of their children. She advised them to actively participate in assessing and encouraging the students to perform better so that better result could be expected in the future.
