Chief Minister Pema Khandu launched two web portals, one of the Education Department and the other a State Control Room to transparently manage COVID 19 status at a meeting in Itanagar on July 22, Thursday. Both the portals have been designed in-house by the Department of Information Technology.
CM Khandu was chairing a meeting on E-Pragati where many other important issues of the state were also discussed.
The web portal of the Education Department – http://education.arunachal.gov.in/ – is equipped with features like grievance cell to enable online solutions, feedback and monitoring of teacher’s performance. One unique feature here is the ‘Know Your Teacher’ link that enables any visitor to get details of any teacher serving in any of the government schools in the state.
The State Control Room website – http://statecontrolroom.arunachal.gov.in/ – of hosts a dynamic COVID-19 analytical dashboard. This integrated web portal will help design better responses and evolve the best strategies in the fight against COVID 19. Also, the dashboard can be used for any emergency.
Referring to the government’s efforts to economically empower Self Help Groups (SHGs) of the state through credit and market linkages, the Chief Minister said the role of deputy commissioners in the success of this endeavor is paramount.
“85% of our people belong to the rural populace. So to develop Arunachal Pradesh economically empowering them is a must. Why not achieve this through our SHGs? It’s the best option and now banks are also coming forward to partner in offering credit linkages,” he observed.
Khandu also drew the attention of the administrators towards the problem of drug abuse. He informed that recently the Cabinet had passed the Arunachal Pradesh Policy on Psychoactive Substances 2021-26 to curb the menace and called for a sincere and proactive role from the district administrations.
“Drug abuse is dangerous than terrorism. Therefore our focus should be on a long-term fight to root it out completely,” he stressed.
During the meeting, several major issues were raised, discussed and actions sought. These include petroleum and hydrocarbon extraction and exploration, Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and System, CAMPA, construction of a road to Tali, multi-story parking in civil secretariat and elsewhere in the state capital, Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna (both rural and urban), implementation of MGNREGA, etc.
The meeting was also attended by Education Minister Taba Tedir and Health Minister Alo Libang besides Chief Secretary, Commissioners, and Secretaries.
