Naga Hoho on Sunday, while acknowledging the work carried out by Border Roads Organization (BRO) at the landslide affected area between Kohima and Dimapur, expressed dissatisfaction over the “slow progress” of work and appealed to BRO to work sincerely so as to gain trust of the people of the state.
A joint statement issued by Naga Hoho president Keviletuo Kiewhuo and general secretary P. Chuba Ozukum said the sluggish progress of work was hindering normal movement of vehicles for the past few months, causing price escalation of essential commodities and thereby making the public, particularly of Kohima, face “untold miseries.”
“In spite of the technological advancement we are amazed as to why the BRO’s roads should become worst in different parts of the state,” the Hoho stated.
Citing example that in other states like Arunachal Pradesh, BRO took only a few weeks to restore road which were affected more than that of Nagaland’s, Naga Hoho expressed dismay that the BRO in the state had been unable to come up with a commutable road between Kohima and Dimapur even after a span of four months.
Hoho also pointed out that other national and state highway projects like the steel bridge near Peducha, taken up by BRO, was lagging behind schedule.
Moreover, Hoho stated if the BRO could not keep up with its “name and vision” and work with sincerity and gain public trust, the state government might as well give away road works to other agencies in future.
