INTER DEPARTMENTAL COORDINATION MEETING HELD AT PFUTSERO
The Inter Departmental Coordination Meeting under Pfutsero Sub division was held on 22nd November 2021 at ADC’s Conference Hall, Pfutsero.
The meeting was chaired by the Additional Deputy Commissioner, Pfutsero. He welcomed the members and briefed the house on the various issues discussed in the previous inter-departmental meeting. Stressing on the importance of attending the monthly coordination meetings, he urged the officers to be sincere and regular as various important agendas were discussed during such meetings. He also welcomed the new officers in the Sub-division and solicited their cooperation and support.
He said that two events were going to be held in line with the Hornbill Festival: Hornbill extension to Pfutsero Town and People's Festival at Chida Resort, Khezhakeno. Security arrangement was discussed in detail and it was decided that additional forces will be requisitioned for these programmes if necessary for which SDPO Pfutsero was requested to ensure that all arrangements are made.
Total ban on plastics in the sub-division was also discussed. Many members expressed their views on this issue. The Heads of Offices were encouraged to put up signage in their offices and to discourage the use of single use plastics and water bottles (less than 1 litre) during events/occasions. It was decided that alternative means to single use plastics will be encouraged and seminars involving NGOs and various stakeholders will be conducted to educate the public on harmful effects of single use plastic in the near future. Schools and educational institutions will also impart life skill activities to the students in the institutions by using biodegradable materials to discourage the use of plastics (eg: paper bags, bamboo dustbins etc.)
