Thahekhu village authorities have expressed dismay over portraying its village in “bad light” on the issue of proposed railway line from Dimapur-Zubza whereby the state chief minister stated in the assembly that realignment of the railway line might be carried out as the government was unable to address the demands for service employment, sub-station and the land compensation rate set by Thahekhu village.
“… this absurd and unfounded statements has left a bitter taste in our mouth and a feeling of resentment,” stated a letter addressed to the chief minister which was jointly signed by Thahekhu village head GB, Hukiye T. Yeputhomi, GB Tovito H. Ayemi, Thahekhu Village Council chairman, Yekheto T. Ayemi and secretary, Heloto K. Anche. The signatories said since the execution of the project, their village had been co-operating with the authorities to the extent of suspending all development works and farming, compromising with the nominal rate offered for their residential land and simultaneously negotiating and convincing their counterparts to give due consent.
They also pointed out that the Nagas would be at “great loss” if the proposed realignment via Assam should take effect. The signatories said that the Dimapur-Zubza railway line being a state project should be implemented in the state itself rather than transferring it to the neighbouring state, the decision for which now rested on the chief minister.
Taking into consideration all these points, the signatories said the Thahekhu village could not afford to be a “scapegoat bearing the brunt of public ire and misgivings or disapproval of our society.”
“Therefore we do not deem it necessary to lay more stress on how much your positive response in correcting this error would mean to us,” the signatories said.
