State chief minister Neiphiu Rio on Thursday inaugurated ADC’s office complex, customary court and laid the foundation stone for polytechnic institute at Aboi under Mon district.
Encouraging the people gathered at the inaugural programme, Rio urged them to focus on education, as lack of education ultimately leads to backwardness.
Commenting on the literacy rate, he said Mon had the least with 58.47%, and felt education must be given top priority.
On economic backwardness of the region, Rio said people of the region should learn to be self sufficient in every aspect. Citing the example of outsiders taking control of business, starting from carpentry to supplying, he wondered as to where all the unemployed youth had vanished.
According to the chief minister, government jobs are limited and believed the local youth should try to be self employed by undergoing professional training. He also lamented that some government servants were withdrawing salary without performing their duty, and thus setting a bad example to their children.
According to him, the DAN government was following ‘give and take’ policy, so as to open the eyes of the people, and lamented this particular policy had led to the demand for separate statehood by ENPO. However despite this, he said DAN was willing to assist and work for the development of the region, and in return urged the people to participate and reciprocate.
Minister for school education Nyeiwang Konyak enumerated on various developmental programme in his constituency after DAN Government came to power under the able leadership of Neiphiu Rio.
Advisor DUDA E.E. Pangteang said the construction of the ADC’s office complex at Aboi was a major achievement of DUDA.
Admitting DUDA schemes were not implemented properly in some constituencies particularly backward district, he said respective elected members and local contractors were responsibile for not implementing the schemes properly.
The ADC’s Office Complex was constructed by the department of DUDA. With the inauguration of new ADC’s office complex at Aboi sub-division, 7 (seven) other government department, besides administration, would benefit from this new building.
The office of the DIS (Education), SDAO (Agri), SDO (Soil), EE (Power), Asstt. Comdt. (V.G), SDIO (IPR) and department of information technology & communication would be accommodated in the same building.
