WHAT SIANG PUBLICS SHOULD ASK IN RETURN OF DAMS ?
The Peoples of the Siang should reiterate its demand for airport in Kombo / Doji area Aalo in return for the sacrifices made for the construction of the numerous proposed dams above theYomgo and Siang river . It will be not only a standing ovation by the Govt for the sacrifice made by the Siang publics , but it will help the Publics of the Aalo , Mechuka and pasighat in immediate evacuation in emergency situation like accidental dam burst as the earlier proposed airport in high altitude area of kombo / Doji area should be beyond the reach of the flood water if it cross danger level .
It is pertinent to mention that the Hon’ble P.M Sri Manmohan Singhji on his maiden visit seems to have sanctioned fund for two airport with immediate effect that was about 2 years back . But the twin project one near capital e,i- |Green Field Airport and another for which the preliminary survey started in Kombo / Doji Village is yet to see the light of the day . Meanwhile the rumor that the presently proposed airport at Tawang is supposed to be the one which was meant for Aalo is a bone of contention for the Publics of Siang . As there is no guarantee that in future another airport will be built in this strategic location .
The Congress Govt. have completely failed in having this vision and specially local leaders in Aalo , pasighat and Mechuka keeping silence is really heartening for the common Publics of this areas . But still time is their according to the reliable sources the ministry of the surface transport is even said to be objecting new location on the ground of the threat from nearby china as the areal distance from the Tawang proposed airport site to Chinese boundary is said to be only 60 km which is said to be less than international aviation norms . Why the twin project one originally meant for West Siang and another Green Field Airport which have been heard to be even sanctioned by the P.M is kept in suspended animation for so long as green airport also seems to be pending due to the Tawang fiasco.
Time to rise for our local leaders and demand for this airport which rightfully belong to the Aalo for the security of the Publics of whole Siang Dist. The Govt. will continue to do kushi kushi even PRC may be given to outsiders if we keep mum and obsessed with taking everything to Tawang for its tourism growth the Govt. may put the life of the Siang Publics one day in peril . It is heard that even 300 crore rope way transportation facility also installed in Tawang ; there should be equality for development why the C.M’s constituency will have lions share always ?
Even if the proposed airport is shifted to Balukpung area from Tawang proposed site it can be made in 2nd phase as Central Govt. seems to be interested to make tree more airport later on . As regarding Balukpung area near Bomdilla and Tawang it is pertinent to mention that there is already airport in Tejpur in nearby Assam to cater to need of this sides . By keeping mum in this regards the leaders of the Siang may have to face popular criticism from Publics as already there is criticism from certain corner that local MLA’s after taking money from the aspiring C.M always keep mum regarding their constituencies development . The sum total performance of our leaders will be counted their for it is a good opportunity for our leaders to out perform their previous bad records by giving this most important airport for the Publics of the Siang who have lately seen only bitterness and in -fighting seems specially politically motivated ones .
It is surprised to heard that while for other three airport project which is supposed to be fund in future the DPR is submitted by the respective PWD Chief Engineer of that zone . In our case was it even preferred by by our Chief Engineer PWD Incharge of this zone ? Did our Honorable leaders checked it or just playing Pokers game and merry making like always ? By excluding the Aalo in phase one as rumor is ripe the leaders in helms of power will ones again show their inefficiency in this sensitive issue . What best they can think is threatening an Individual but this is an issue where majority may be angry therefore our leaders better correct their mistakes before time as already no step taken regarding last times PDS demonstration by the GSU and WSSU members . The Public may have to categorically warn them to take concrete steps regarding this or to forget the future elections .
