PANGIN, Apr 27:  In an effort to speed up the completion and commissioning work over Subbung Micro Hydel Project which has been sealed by the land donors of Subsing village under Boleng Circle some 49 KM from here, 35 Pangin-Boleng MLA Tapang Taloh and Dy. Commissioner, Siang District, Rahul Singh inspected the hydel site today and interacted with villagers.

While inspecting the intake point areas and channel of the 3 MW Micro Hydel Project over river Subbung, Taloh cautioned the concern engineers led by EE Er. T. Ete not to compromise with the quality. While on the part of concern engineers, they cited the MLA and DC about the land donors’ sealing up of the power sub-station due to non disbursement of their liabilities. However, both EE and AE said that the project is almost complete and they are also working hard to get it commissioned early though their predecessors might have made some mistake in the fund management.

Meanwhile, Subsing villagers led by Anchal Samity Member, Tajing Pabin submitted a 7 point memorandum to Taloh in a formal meeting held with the villagers at Subsing village community hall (Musup) for onward submission to the Chief Minister. In their petition to Chief Minister, the villagers expressed their resentment over negligence on the part of concern hydro power department executing the project in paying off their pending liabilities. “We have already donated our land free of cost to the government for want of development, as we thought coming up of this power project would give us alternative living and livelihood. But despite the project starting some 20 years ago during 1996-97 after we donated our land covering around 100 acres which included irrigation fields and MIC of 2720 mtrs constructed by RWD, the project is yet to see the light of the day. We are not asking money for land donated, but our small time contractual work bills are kept pending or half paid whereas bills of other well-to-do contractors from outside were paid in full. So, unless our villagers’ bill liabilities totaling around 40 lakhs are paid off we won’t open the sealed office of the power sub-station”, said the villagers.

While responding to their grievances, MLA Tapang Taloh and DC Rahul Singh assured to get the liabilities paid at the earliest and urged them to open the sealing so that work continues and the project gets commissioned soon. Taloh also assured the villagers to submit their 7 points memorandum to the Chief Minister.
