LUBRANG, Jul 12:In an attempt to give a much needed fillip to the educational scenario at remote Lubrang village, home to the Brokpas – the Yak herders, Deputy Commissioner Dr. Sonal Swaroop sanctioned furniture, black boards, computers, construction of toilets and a playground for the Government Primary School Lubrang under the CM’s Samast Shiksha Yojana.

The DC urged the people not to migrate to towns and cities but instead strive to make the picturesque village a tourist destination. The village located at a height of 9000 ft has been endowed with all the natural beauty and can be a tourism hub if the necessary infrastructures are created, she opined.

In a bid to engage and empower the Brokpa womenfolk in income generation who normally idle away time as the men folk are away for months together with their herds in the high reaches of the Himalayas, the DC distributed free fly shuttle frame looms with accessories under the Untied fund to 30 women beneficiaries. Others were given looms under the CM’s Indigenous Textile Promotion Scheme facilitated by the department of Textiles & Handicrafts, Bomdila.

Dirang ADC Dagbom Riba spoke on tourism promotion and urged the state government to look into the tax being paid by the Brokpas to the land owners which over burdens them financially.

DDTH D Phuntso advocated venturing into textile and handicraft business for sustainable development as the village has little or no agricultural scope.

Also on the occasion, the DC distributed prayer books and booklets containing the indigenous names of places of the district published by DoKAA.
