The people of Manipur’s Tousem sub-division in Tamenglong district are in news this time for being the army of a young IAS officer in making of a 100 Km road to connect Manipur with Nagaland and Assam. The USP of this news is the fact that all the villagers took up the task for helping this young Naga man named Armstrong Pame without getting any financial aid from the government end.
By Profession Armstrong Pame is the first ever IAS officer from the Zeme tribe, presently handling the position of being the sub-divisional magistrate of Tamenglong, which is his own home district. This distinct never received the promised fund of Rs 101 Crore which got sanctioned in the year 1982 by the central government. So Armstrong took the initiative for the making of the road by accumulating from family members, his self savings and managed to contribute an amount of Rs.4 lakh. He also created a social networking page asking for the support of the public to contribute in the fund for making of the road. Hats off to this young man and the best wishes of the general public of India will always be there to support him in this mission.
