Two villages get farm road
This February Dungchilu and Nangray under Dechhenling will be facilitated with farm road.
Under this gewog, these were the only two villages left without a farm road. People had to transport goods on horseback and sometimes on their own backs.
Gup Sonam Rinchen said “the 5km road that connects Dungchilu will also benefit nearby Khorlom communities”.
With that the road will benefit around 30 households and most beneficiaries would be the orange transporters since they have to hire many horses to transport oranges to their depot and hire school students.
The two km road that connects Nangray will also benefit Shingchongri community of 20 households.
The budget allotted for the road construction is around Nu 0.9mn. Although the machines are provided by government fuel is being adjusted from the gewog budget.
Village organizes puja for wellbeing
The village conducted the puran puja for the second time as this kind of puja was also organized last year and called “Shree Makh Bhagat Saktanarayan” for peace.
And this year all the gewog people gathered to attend the Devi Bhagat Puran puja to pray for their wellbeing.
Gup Pema Wangchuk said, “We organized the puja on 17th of this month and this would take for another nine days. This puja is also like our Bhutanese puja where we call it as the moenlam chenmo”.
The puja is also coordinated by the gewog’s pandits and the budget used is from the Tshogpa collections.
The gewog also remains busy with development activities such as the renovation of a one kilometer irrigation channel budgeted for Nu 300,000 which is about to be completed.
Two schemes of rural water supply scheme (RWSS) in Barilney chiwog and Khentong chiwog is still under construction where the works are supervised by the gewog and the budget allocated is from the government.
Meeting the deadlines by this December
The gewog is presently in a rush to meet the deadlines of development activities for this financial year.
More than 90% of the works have been completed and the gewog is set to complete all the activities in few more days.
Recently a community outreach clinic (ORC) in Menjigang village has been completed with a budget of about Nu 0.5mn.
The ORC will benefit some 54 households.
The 200 meters long Diklai suspension bridge is yet to be completed. Almost 95% of the work has been completed with the Nu 7mn budget. Constructions for the bridge started since 2011.
Sometime in 2004, the suspension bridge was washed away by a flood.
The bridge will benefit the people of Bawani village. The village has about 32 households.
On-going activities also include works on four Rural Water Supply Schemes (RWSS) which are underway.
