|‘Lower Siang district creation delayed’|
ITANAGAR, Nov 17 – Arunachal Pradesh government today clarified that creation of Lower Siang district was being delayed due to tardy finalization of the jurisdiction of the proposed new district as well as its headquarters.
“Despite several public hearings, consultations and review meetings, a decision with regard to jurisdiction of Lower Siang district and its headquarters has not arrived yet. The State government is committed to give the green signal for formation of the new district once there is a permanent solution to the hurdles,” a statement issued from Chief Minister’s Office said here.
The statement came in response to the dharna staged by Galo Students’ Union here yesterday. – PTI
