BOMDILA, May 25:  A coordination meeting with the 14 & 42 BRTF, Police, Para military forces, administrative officers and HODs was held today late afternoon by the Deputy Commissioner to review the disaster preparedness in the district in view of the onset of the monsoon in the district.
Directing 14 and the 42 BRTF Commanders to place men and machineries in all the vulnerable locations along the BCT and the OKSRT road, Deputy Commissioner Karma Leki asked them to keep open the line of communication on real time basis and also to appoint Nodal Officers each to liaise with the District administration.
Commander 14 BRTF Col. BS Katal and representative of the TTC Infra India, assured that the Balipara-Charduar-Tawang (BCT) road; the main lifeline for the districts of West Kameng, East Kameng and Tawang, which had been closed since May 21 on account of various landslides and washing away of portions of road at multiple places, would be made motorable by the end of the first week of June. 
Commander 42 BRTF A J Singh assured the DC of placing requisite man power and adequate machineries on the OKSRT road as the returnees of West Kameng and Tawang districts are being escorted through that road since May 21 which remains blocked for hours on end due to landslides and shooting stones at certain locations. All the administrative officers and HODs including SP presented the preparedness plan and suggested various measures for strengthening mitigation acts.

Deputy Commissioner Karma Leki directed the administrative officers to activate control rooms and the IRTs and to constantly monitor the rivers and the streams in their respective circles. He further directed them to issue monsoon advisories and constantly review the disaster management plan and resource mapping besides identifying vulnerable areas in their respective circles.
Meanwhile, the district reels under darkness for the fifth day in a row. Incessant rainfall and blocks at multiple points on the BCT road have made it impossible for the power department to restore power supply to the district. DIPRO
