State chief minister, Neiphiu Rio called for support from the public, particularly the Angamis in his programme for improvement of Kohima. Interacting with the office bearers of the Angami Gazzetted Officers’ Krotho (AGOK) at his residential office Monday, Rio also impressed upon them to educate the public and create awareness. The two major constraints of Kohima town, in its fast expanding requirements, are water and roads. The government has taken up steps towards solving the problems by constructing by-pass roads and water supply projects. The NH-39 is soon to be diverted along the alignment currently being cut by the Urban Development Department and would be handed over to the BRO on completion. The diversion to Imphal would be from NH-39 to Kohima Leki road-Aradura to NH-39; Dimapur-Kohima to Wokha-Mokokchung would be from Naga Hospital-Daklane-Naga Bazaar-Veterinary Office junction; Wokha to Phek-Zunheboto would be from High Court via New Secretariat to BSF Camp, Chedema. There are already two roads from Dimapur to Wokha/Mokokchung from (i) Peducha to Tsiesema (ii) Diphupar sub-jail via Niuland/Zhadima to Wokha road (Nerhema). For water supply, two projects are near commencement, one for upper area of the town and one for the lower region. The first is from Jotsoma Dzüvürü River through the Science College and the second from Dzü-ü through Mitelephe and Lerie. The chief minister, while disclosing these plans towards solving the acute problems of the capital town, lamented that the land owners and villages often failed to realise the greater importance of such projects and instead create hurdles. In this regard, he urged the AGOK, APO and other public organisations to play constructive roles in such programmes.
