Chief minister, Neiphiu Rio on Friday said there was “something wrong” that even though 80% of the Naga people live in villages and practices agriculture, they do not have sufficient food.
According to DIPR, Rio while addressing the Special DPDB meeting at Youth Hall, Zunheboto on Friday categorically stated that the Nagas were all generals without soldiers.
Stating that the root cause of food insufficiency has to be found out, Rio said that Agri and Allied department must work in full coordination. “We have to produce enough for ourselves,” Rio said informing that a vision 2020 was set up for food sufficiency for Nagaland. “Unless you have innovative ideas our next generation will perish,” he added.
The chief minister said although many developmental activities were going on, it was never enough and that government alone cannot do everything. Rio called for putting together everyone’s efforts for tangible development, be it political, economic or any development.
Rio said he would be launching the year 2010 as the ‘Year of the Entrepreneur’ at the Mokokchung Road Show 2010. He said Nagas have to be a producing state and learn all kinds of trades and invest in order to multiply their assets. He said the government would assist the entrepreneurs with funds for training and procuring materials etc.
On Census 2011, the chief minister requested the concerned census officers to collect and provide right information during data collection and census operation for accurate developmental activities. Regarding ongoing teachers verification, Rio said education cannot be compromised at any cost since Nagaland has only 69.28% literacy rate, which he added was very low.
In a civilised society, one must learn to control emotions and let reason rule over. “We must find a middle path and a walkable solution,” said Rio referring to the ongoing agitation for full implementation of 6th ROP.
Minister for health & family welfare, Kuzholuzo highlighted some activities taken up by the department. He gave a positive note on the enhancement of manpower and infrastructure development at Hezukhu Memorial District Hospital, Zunheboto. Additional chief secretary & development commissioner, Alemtemshi Jamir, APC H.K. Khulu IAS, secretary IT T. Sukhalu, general manager NIDC Nihoto Shohe, chief engineer PHED also spoke during the meeting.
The chief minister was accompanied by minister for roads & bridges, G. Kaito Aye, minister for H&FW, Kuzholuzo, minister for forest, M.C. Konyak. The meeting was chaired by parliamentary secretary industries & commerce, Dr. K.C. Nihoshe who is also the chairman of DPDB Zunheboto and vote of thanks was pronounced by deputy commissioner Zunheboto T. Kiheto.
