KOHIMA, Nov 17: Concerned over the present state of road condition in Kohima district, a delegation of Angami Youth Organization (AYO) and Angami Students’ Union (ASU) on 16th of November, 2017 called on Chief Minister, T.R. Zeliang at his residential office. The delegation urged the Chief Minister to initiate immediate action to mitigate the deplorable road condition on war-footing.
The delegation led by President, AYO, Neinguvotuo Krose and President, ASU, Visako Rino, submitted a joint representation, briefing the Chief Minister of the pathetic condition of the roads in and around Kohima town, and all its adjacent routes. “The approaching State Hornbill Festival and the festive seasons will very soon witness the flow of outside visitors both domestic and international. It is very embarrassing that routes between Kohima to Kisama and Kohima to Zubza River do not even deserve to be called roads, and in addition to this, all roads leading to various colonies are self-explanatory by their condition,” the representation stated.
The delegation expressed confidence that the government would mitigate the deplorable condition before the summer season wretch in. They pointed out that the year witnessed massive and destructive natural disasters. “Mudslides and landslides played havoc to all our roads both on State and National Highways, and now with the dry season, measures must be activated to improve our roads because if it is ignored again, we would continue to suffer endlessly.”
After a patient hearing, the Chief Minister discussed with the delegation a series of developmental activities being implemented in the State. He apprised of the ongoing building of road connectivity, problems of traffic congestion, Kohima Smart City, and preparation for the upcoming Hornbill Festival. He further sought for constructive suggestions and cooperation from the delegation.
