LAMKA, September 02:
A water supply scheme was inaugurated today at Suangdoh village approximately 50 km from Lamka Town by Singngat MLA GS Haupu. The water supply scheme was constructed under the National Rural Drinking Water Programme by the PHED at a cost of Rs 30 lakh. The inaugural function was also attended by ZRO president Thanglianpau Guite, Th Baite EE (PHED) and chief of the village Dr Chinkholian Guite and others. A grand reception was held later at the Village community hall in celebration of the Water Supply Scheme attended by leaders from various communities and presidents of ZSF, SSPP, ZYA HQ, ZC and chiefs from various villages. Speaking at the function, chairman of the celebration sub-committee Khup Guite expressed his happiness over the water supply scheme turning into a reality. Singhat MLA GS Haupu said he was glad of the concern contractors and EE and AE of the concern department for their support in realising the dream of having a water supply scheme in the village. He said that the absence of a water supply plant has been the main hindrance to improving sanitation and hygiene in the villages. The MLA further said his main plan is to bring a higher secondary school at Singngat town and a high school at Sangaikot and added the ZYA could be the harbinger of unity and peace. Chief host of the function, Suangdoh village chief Dr C Guite said he was grateful of the concerned MLA and the EE Th Baite for making the scheme possible. The EE on his part said the construction was hampered by many hindrances and as such took such a long time to complete construction. He said the scheme was commissioned way back in November 2010. However, the scheme has been made possible due to the keen interest shown by the local MLA and with the help of the villagers as there was shortage of man power, he said. The village now needs a village water sanitation scheme which is a must under government norms, the EE continued. T Guite laid emphasis on the importance of co-operation to make something possible and said the water supply scheme was a culmination of the MLAs promises and hard work of the villagers. Meanwhile, the Zomi Youth Association’s Kapkhovung Block Office was also inaugurated today by the president of Zomi Re-unification Organisation (ZRO) who act as the chief guest in the presence of the the Singngat MLA.
