To address basic issues,Mizo youth of Jampui Hills held peace rally

Agartala: The Mizo Convention Youth Wing of Jampui Hills organized a peace rally on Tuesday, demanding immediate attention to a comprehensive set of development issues affecting the beautiful region.
The rally, attended by passionate youth activists, highlighted seven key charter points of concern, including water scarcity, inadequate power supply, and the need to improve road infrastructure.
The Jampui Hills, known for their breathtaking beauty and located around 200 km from Agartala, stand as the highest mountain range in Tripura bordering Mizoram.
Despite its allure as a tourist destination, the local community faces significant issues that are long overdue.
The youth wing submitted a memorandum to Chief Minister Dr Manik Saha through the Block Development Officer (BDO), stressing the need for immediate action on various fronts.
The demand for a local fire station was raised, as the community currently relies on the services of Kanchanpur Fire Station, which is an hour away.

Additionally, the youth wing advocated for the establishment of an Aadhaar Cell in Jampui Hills RD Block, streamlining essential services for the local population. The need for enhanced medical facilities was underscored, with a plea to upgrade Jampui Primary Health Care to Community Health Care status.

The memorandum outlined the challenges faced, including the lack of medical tests, overcapacity, and the absence of specialized treatments.

The residents also voiced their concerns about water scarcity, citing villages that have experienced years of water supply disruptions. The plea included a request for the construction of a water project to address the issue comprehensively.

Another critical issue raised was the demand for immediate action on NH-44A, a lifeline for the region’s connectivity.

Addressing agricultural concerns, the youth wing urged government intervention to resolve the areca nut market crisis. Traditionally, traders from Assam would engage in negotiations for the crop, but this year, a notable absence has caused financial stress in the community.

The youth wing implored the government to establish an institutional mechanism for areca nut trading, ensuring the prosperity of this vital market.
