Duda introduces mobile media van
Dimapur, Oct. 21 (EMN): The department of Under Developed Areas (Duda) has introduced what they called “outdoor mobile media van,” as part of capacity-building support. The Duda issued a press release to the media on Monday informing about the introduction of the vehicles.
“It has been introduced as the first of its kind in the State with the objective of educating and creating awareness for people living in the International Border block villages. This programme is implemented under Border Area Development Programme,” the press release stated.
The van is a modified four-wheeled Mahindra pickup with complete accessories such as an LED screen, a sound system, laptop and generator, the updates stated.
Besides conducting education and capacity building programmes, one of the works of the ‘mobile media van’ is to provide support for educating people about the policies and programmes of the state government, the updates stated.
“The vehicles will be used to disseminate information on the current policies and programmes of various Government departments which otherwise due to remoteness in geographical location remain mostly unheard and inaccessible,” the Duda stated.
The vehicles will travel to all remote border villages to conduct seminars and educational programmes with visual and audio facilities. This initiative of the Duda is considered as an innovative programme among many other government projects, the updates stated.
