Delay in fund release deter development of Dima Hasao


Delay in fund release to the Dima Hasao Autonomous Council is the prime hindrance of development in the district of Dima Hasao opined conscious citizen of the district.


It is learnt that the fund for the DHAC was to be released in two installments, once in April/May and other in September/October but the DHAC never gets the fund in time resulting to immense difficulties. The 2nd installment of 2009-2010 was not received by the DHAC, while the 1st Installment of 10-11 is also yet to receive till now. In fact, the development works like road construction, plantation etc are seasonal and these are to be done in time other wise these become useless and the fund meant for these works either lapsed or misused.


In this regard, Sri Hamjanan Langthasa, Executive Member, met the HAD Minister Khorsing Engti and the Chief Secretary, Govt of Assam and requested to do the needful.


Talking to this correspondent Sri Langthasa disclosed that the Chief Secretary gave a patient hearing to him and his response was positive. He assured that now on he will try to streamline the fund flow to the DHAC.


Meanwhile Sri Depolal Hojai, Chairman, Dima Hasao Autonomous Council also met HAD Minister regarding the fund release who also assured to release the fund after following the formalities.


The people of Dima Hasao in particular are of the opinion that the Dispur can play a pivotal role for the development of this district since the normalcy has returned to a great extent which had passed through a decade long uncertainty and despair. Therefore it has become need of hour for the Dispur to help out the district of Dima Hasao to regain and retain its lost glory.
