ITANAGAR, Mayor –IMC Tame Phassang distributed free rice (5Kg) to various needy people under Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana (PMGKAY) on the occasion of birth 105th birth anniversary of Pandit Deendayal Upadhyaya here at Naharlagun today .
Speaking to the reporters, Phassang informed that, though PMGKAY is the scheme of the central government to confer free rice to the needy people, the main objective of this event is to provide rations to those people who were left out in the last distribution. So taking the opportunity of the birth anniversary of the Pandit Deendayal Upadhyaya, we are distributing the free rations to the needy people. He also informed that a similar programme will also be held in different locations of the capital region.
While responding to the query of reporters, the Mayor informed that a team of IMC will soon visit the national capital to meet the central minister and to attend a meeting called by the Prime Minister with all the urban local bodies and other heads to discuss various developmental issues of the state in October next. We are also very much sure that pending funds under Atal Mission Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT) will be released by the concerned Ministry so that our works on Sewage treatment Plant, Solid waste management plant and others will be completed soon.
The working season has started already, so IMC will start its work as soon as funds will be released by the Ministry, and I assured the public that without any corruption we will complete the projects’ asserted Mayor Tame Phassang.
