ITANAGAR, Jan 28: “Actions are louder than ornamental words,” said UD, Housing, Town Planning, Municipal Affairs secretary Dr Sonal Swarup while interacting with department engineers and officers at Dorjee Khandu state convention centre here on Tuesday.
“I talk less but believe in action for which you all should keep your mobiles on 24×7 to receive instructions from me for the works not to get hampered,” she told UD engineers including director-cum-CE Taring Darang, SSW Marcony Potom, EE Gyamar Tachung & directors Sukhbinder Singh (town planning) and Techi Gobin (housing), without mincing any words. She assured full co-operation as and when required and urged all work hard to carve a niche in state building, an officer who attended the meeting told this daily.
Though she resumed duty on Monday on being transferred from Bomdila where she worked as West Kameng DC, but she was on her toes since 9 am on Tuesday reflecting her work culture toeing Indira Gandhi’s golden policy – ‘Talk less, work more’.
In fact, she was known for her strict administration in West Kameng and the engineers should tighten their belts least being reprimanded for dereliction of duty.
An official release said she was apprised of various ongoing projects after she inspected MLAs’ Apartment, G+5 flats for senior GoAP officers’ apartment and 576 [G+3] rental house, including infrastructure at Chimpu, ambitious UD projects on the verge of completion.
Expressing satisfaction on work quality and progress during her inspection, she directed the engineers to strictly adhere to target fixed for completion to coincide their inauguration with Statehood Day celebration on February 20 next.
The accommodation problems of all elected representatives will be solved once for all on completion of the much awaited MLA Apartments, she said with conviction.
