KOKRAJHAR, Jan 9 � The Chirang district administration has initiated an ambitious plan to take the benefits of various government schemes on transportation, potable water, education, irrigation, agriculture, health, nutrition, etc., right to the doorsteps of the riot-hit people through various departments.

In this connection, a meeting was held at the conference hall of the Chirang DC�s office at Kajalgaon on Wednesday, in which various programmes being executed by the line departments were assessed and reviewed in order to chalk out schemes with particular reference to giving the highest priority for the rehabilitation of the violence-hit people in the district.

Presiding over the meeting, Chirang DC Rupak Kumar Muzumder said that there are about 19,000 violence-hit people in 11 different relief camps. The DC asked all the district heads of various departments to use funds and available resources for the benefit of these people and prepare suitable proposals to be forwarded to the Government for special consideration. The need of the hour is to rehabilitate the displaced people immediately in order to restore peace in the district, the DC added.

The DRDA PD told the DC that some ongoing schemes can immediately provide employment to the violence-hit people. He further said that the DRDA has prepared a proposal for additional grants under the MREGA so that more employment opportunities can be provided to the people in the district.

The DC asked the Inspector of Schools to prepare a list and submit it to the Government, along with a copy to him, to aid HSLC, HS and TDC examinees who are living in the relief camps. He called for special coaching camps for HSLC candidates and provision of reference books by making appeals to NGOs and other bodies in this regard.

The DC asked the Assistant Director, Food and Civil Supplies, to verify and assess the number of actual FI card holders in the arson-affected areas and inform them about the PDS items being given through their agents. He also asked him to place additional demands for the violence-hit people.

The DC also asked other departments like Agriculture to supply seeds and necessary equipment to the violence-hit people, DICC to arrange loans for them, SIRD to aid SHGs with various schemes, Sericulture Department to initiate plantation in the forest village areas and roadside, Veterinary Department to take steps to set up piggery, poultry, duckery and goatery in the violence-affected areas involving the youths of the relief camps, Social Welfare Department to extend financial help under existing schemes and provide food supplements, Forest Department to take schemes concentrating on the violence-affected forest villages, Fishery to adopt suitable schemes, Irrigation Department to take up schemes under the AIBP, AOP, etc., Handloom and Textiles to assist weavers and supply yarn and machinery, BDOs to provide beneficiary schemes so that the arson-affected areas could be developed and the people living there could be absorbed as workers in the implementation of schemes.

Attending the meeting, the ex-minister and MLA Chandan Brahma expressed his thanks to the district administration for initiating such steps in the interest of the people of the violence-hit areas. He said that the meeting was important to establish the facts regarding the status of schemes being implemented in the district, thereby facilitating in the preparation of future plans. He also asked the district heads to take interest in the implementation of the schemes in the affected areas.

BTC executive member James Basumatary also spoke in the meeting. Chirang SP Ranjan Kumar Bhuyan informed the meeting about the plan to organise free recruitment camps in the violence-hit areas so that the youths can get ready for actual recruitment in any force. He also gave information vacancies of constables and the Army recruitment rally to be held at Bongaigaon for six districts of lower Assam from February 10 to February 19.

The Chirang DC said that if there is any problem in the implementation of the schemes, he may be informed directly. He further said that he himself would monitor the works regularly and requested all the officers present to accelerate the implementation of schemes in the violence-hit area to restore peace and usher in more progress in the district.
