The meeting highlighted two main issues:
• The authorised deadline for compensation to the land owners being delayed on several occasions.
• Increase in tariff for goods and services due to road connectivity issues.
SDM Chungthang placed forth the urgency of connectivity as well as the compensation while explaining to the public that all official work has been completed efficiently.
Commander Col (BRO), stressing on the importance of restoring road connectivity before monsoon, urged the land owners to trust that the compensation for their aid and support would be made in due time but restoring the nation first should take precedence in any decision that will be made, moving forward. He also assured that the connectivity beyond Mangan would be restored within two weeks.
A unanimous decision to allow the ongoing work to continue till July 15, 2023 was agreed upon by the panchayat members and land owners. They requested that an official agreement for the compensation be signed by the concerned officials and representatives, pleading that there be no further delay.
