Niuland Citizens Forum (NCF) has appealed to the chief minister Neiphiu Rio to fulfill the commitment on construction of Niuland guest house made by him during the Naga Students’ federation held at Niuland in the year 2003. According to the forum’s president Isak G. Zhimomi and Secretary Hekiye H. Liriki, a tender was floated with regard to construction of the guest house but was cancelled later on. With regard to this issue, a general body meeting under the banner of Niuland Citizens Forum was held on January 14, 2010 where the house thoroughly deliberated on the commitment made by the chief minister and resolved to seek immediate fulfillment made by him.
Meanwhile, the forum has also appealed to the chief minister for prompt maintenance of the 60 kms stretch of Kohima- Bokajan-Niuland road. The forum stated that the government of India had sanctioned rupees 24 crore in the year 2007-08.
However, forum expressed dismay that till date, no maintenance work has been executed and the road has been lying in deplorable condition. It also noted that this stretch of road was one of the busiest and important roads under ADC Niuland headquarter as well as GPRN/NSCN designated camp Khehoi and added that failing to repair the road, the forum would initiate its own course of action upon the defaulters.
In another letter addressed to home minister, Imkong L. Imchen for grant of financial assistance under modernization for NAP camp, quarter guard, barrack and staff quarter under ADC headquarter Niuland, the forum mentioned that the then chief minister of Nagaland, SC Jamir inaugurated the NAP camp at Niuland in the year 2001, however it said that till date there has been no action taken by the government.
To address the issue of negligence on the part of the government the forum held a meeting on April 15, 2010 and after prolonged deliberation, the house unanimously resolved to approach the authority in charge and seek financial assistance under modernization for NAP camp, ADC headquarter Niuland. With regard to the creation of SDPO post in Niuland in the year 1998, the forum said the office has been functioning from Dimapur since its inception and has been creating untold hardship to the 98 villages under Niuland with the total population of around 60,000. In this regard the forum has appealed for immediate posting of SDPO Niuland for the interest and welfare of the public assisted by the additional deputy commissioner Niuland.
