The residents of Pangin, under the guidance of Siang DC Rahul Singh, have created a record of sorts by repairing and restoring power transmission between Yembung and Pangin.
The power supply had remained disrupted for a long time even after the restoration of Yembung Hydel Plant three months ago. The department concerned was not being able to transmit power to Pangin as the two poles were totally damaged because of construction of Trans Arunachal Highway and landslides.
Official reports stated that the power department had failed to restore the system for the past three months owing to the alleged paucity of government funds.
DC Singh had mobilized the locals, including officers and staff of various departments, local leaders and villagers to make a joint initiative in the area.
With the help of power department, they successfully erected two new poles without any financial assistance from the government and revived the transmission after hours of toiling.
The DC, while appreciating the locals for their endeavour, asked them to make such united efforts in future whenever the need arises. He promised all possible help to the power department officials to carry out their duties, a report said here on Saturday.
