Arunachal Pradesh Governor Brig (Retd) B D Mishra on Thursday said that strict action must be taken against all unlawful occupants of government land.
“Encroachment, particularly that of government land must be stopped immediately and encroachers must be made accountable for their illegal action,” the governor said during his meeting with Urban Development minister Kamlung Mosang at Raj Bhawan here.
Mishra said corrective actions must be made boldly visible on the ground and a strong message must go out that “encroachment will not be tolerated”.
He further suggested a thorough investigation in all reported and noticed cases of encroachment.
The governor also shared his concern regarding the solid and liquid waste management plant, which is lying unused and defunct at Chimpu near here.
He advised that corrective action in this regard must be taken immediately.
Matters related to the strategic 157-km long Miao-Vijaynagar Road were also discussed during the meeting.
Mishra suggested Mossang, who is also the local legislator of the area, that the supply orders for 11 bridges required on the road must be placed soon for their manufacturing.
He further emphasized that the abutments and embankments for the launching of these bridges must be prepared soon so that there is no loss of time.
The governor said the acid test of the road will be when a civil bus will be able to operate from Miao to Vijaynagar nonstop, in all weather conditions throughout the year.
He also informed about the assistance offered by the Indian Army in the completion of the vital road, which must be studied seriously and availed of as needed by the state.
