Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma has assured that the government will implement the ring well projects for villages along the Indo-Bangla border.
“It is a one crore project and now we have ensured that it (proposal) has been sent to the finance department (for approval),” Sangma said while replying in the Assembly here on Thursday.
Congress legislator from Mawsynram Himalaya Shangpliang had expressed concern over the delay to approve the project.
“I have been raising this issue since 2018 and today is the sixth time relating to ring well projects along the Indo-Bangla border. I was also given assurance by the CM (but project not approve yet),” he said
Shangpliang also brought to the notice of the House about the travel history of the file which was sent to the planning department. He requested the government to be more sensitive and consider the projects for the benefit of the people as he urged the CM to look into the delay and fix responsibility.
On this, the chief minister said that the delay was when the file had come to the planning department it was found out that the PHE had gone (proposed) beyond the bank of sanction.
He said due to this, it was not possible for the planning department to approve.
“These are official matters and they do take time. There are certain procedures we cannot bypass but it is not that we dont want to do this project. Therefore, let me assure that we will do it,” the CM said.
