Villagers of Tousem sub-division under Tamenglong District voiced disappointment over state government’s failure to fulfill their long-standing demand for a dam project over Chakungtoo stream.
Speaking to the media persons, TR Ringthengning, president of Tousem area village chairman committee said that the state government has failed to take up a project for water supply which could be conveniently accessed by more than ten villages of Tousem sub-division under Tamenglong district. TR Ringthengning also said that since the development of Taningjang village forests, the running water of Chakungtoo stream has been available the whole year.
More than 10 villages will have access to this water resource if a dam could be made on the very stream, Ringthengning said, adding that so far the state government has failed to comply with the villagers’ wishes despite the submission of memorandum for a project to construct dam on the stream.
Villagers of the Tousem sub-division are working as one to make the water resources available in their villages as the government did not show any interest, he added.
