Armstrong Pame is first IAS ( Indian Administrative Officer) from his Zeme tribe of Tamenglong district in Manipur where he serves as sub-divisional magistrate. He is making a 100KM road now christened Tamenglong-Haflong Road from his home district to Assam which will connect three states, Manipur, Nagaland and Assam. He is constructing the road without any government help.
As per news, government had sanctioned Rs. 101 crore way back in 1982 for the construction of the same road. No news about the money so far, but the road was not constructed and people from villages in Tousem used to walk 60KM for 25KGs of ration which took them about four days. And the ration of 25KGs lasted for about 10 days.
