Itanagar: Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu, while underscoring the need of digital connectivity in far-flung border areas, on Thursday stressed on the urgency to digitally connect all unconnected areas as soon as possible.
Reviewing the installation of 4G towers in rural areas during the 19th monthly e-Pragati meeting, the Chief Minister urged the deputy commissioners of all districts to concentrate on the process and coordinate with concerned officials.
He expressed satisfaction on overall progress across the state particularly in implementation of e-Office and called upon the deputy commissioners to lead their offices to go from paper files to e-files.
He also urged the DCs to create awareness and ensure people in their districts come forward for Aadhaar seeding with Voter IDs. This, he said, is required to check voter enrollment at more than one place by a single individual.
“This is an urgent requirement for Arunachal Pradesh where we have been witnessing people having more than one voter ID. This hampers a free and fair electoral process and must be checked,” Khandu observed.
During today’s meeting, several projects and programmes were reviewed such as 2000 MW Subansiri Lower Hydro-Electric Project, Kurung, Nafra and New Melling HE Projects, Daporijo-Taliha Road, Roing-Anini Road, Joram-Koloriang Road, and 132 KV Roing (Lower Dibang Valley) to Chapakhowa (Assam) transmission line.
The meeting was also attended by Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein, Chief Secretary Dharmendra and other senior state government officers, an official release said.
