Itanagar: Arunachal Pradesh government on Saturday clarified that creation of Lower Siang district was being delayed due to tardy finalization of the jurisdiction of the proposed new district as well as its headquarters.

“Despite several public hearings, consultations and review meetings, a decision with regard to jurisdiction of Lower Siang district and its headquarters has not arrived yet.

“The state government is committed to give the green signal for formation of the new district once there is a permanent solution to the hurdles,” a statement issued from chief minister’s office said here.

The statement came in response to the dharna staged by Galo Students Union here yesterday in protest against non-fulfillment of its various demands.

In regards to another demand for upgrading the district hospital at Aalo in West Siang district, the statement said that there were proposals for upgradation of district hospitals at Aalo, Bomdila and Namsai to general hospitals.

The directorate of health services had initiated a proposal and a company had completed the survey work last year.

The state government under the RTE Act 2009 has approved 30 schemes for development of school infrastructure in West Siang district during 2010-11 under Special Plan Assistance (SPA) as one time grant and also proposed to construct one RTE office in the district under SPA, it said.

“The state government is trying its best to revive the now defunct Nigmoi Fruit Processing Unit by taking it back from the private party and hand it over to local community based civil societies,” it said. (PIT)
