MVRJAC talking tough on MV Road
VIJAYNAGAR: Miao Vijaynagar Road Joint Action Committee headed by Chairman Sri C. Lisu, President Khuyodi Yobin and Media Secretary Dayosa Yobin in a press release expressed displeasure at the way the task of constructing MV road is being handled. The release stated that road communication is the backbone for upliftment and development of the people and therefore access to it is the fundamental right of the people and denial of the same is infringement of their rights. The release further said the people of Vijaynagar valley has been demanding justice from the Government of Arunachal Pradesh and the centre since the past four decades but to utter astonishment and perplexity till date the people of Vijaynagar are compelled to cover 157 kms on foot to reach Miao, the nearest town for acquiring essential commodities, education and medical facilities. The release said the UPA government sanctioned whopping funds under PMGSY scheme running to crores for construction of the lifeline and to that effect foundation stone was laid by the then Union Minister Jairam Ramesh on 21 February 2013. The vision 2009-14 for Vijaynagar Circle of local MLA and Minister Kamlung Mossang released during election campaign in 2009 clearly stated that the task of constructing the MV road would be handed over to BRO but to utter dismay the tenders were floated in phases and works allotted to private parties, the release said while re-iterating that the people of Vijaynagar will not succumb to such tactics. We demand that the works be handed over to BRO and not to any private parties to ensure quality construction and judicious use of public money.
