Parliamentary secretary for social welfare and women development Chotisüh Sazo on Friday inaugurated, which may perhaps be the longest Agri link road in the state at Chesezu Village.
Speaking at the programme, Sazo said that the road was meant not only to serve the purpose of linking the village with their agricultural land but also opened an opportunity for the people to settle there and do farming activities.
Unlike in the past, Sazo said people were realizing the importance of road connectivity due to which developmental activities were talking place today. He lauded the Chesezu villagers and attributed the success of the project to their unity and cooperation.
He said Chesezu was a historical village and the last camp of Subhash Chandra Bose and that the village continues to attract tourists. He told the villagers to preserve historical monuments in the village so as to attract the tourists and make the village a tourist attraction centre.
He disclosed that the state government has a plan to establish rural tourism centre and helipad in the village and added that many other developments would follow once the centre was established.
Sazo said that Chakhesangs have in the past given top priority to farming activity and not education due to which they failed to catch up with the rest of the advanced society today. He said the Chakhesangs have been too much engrossed into so many social activities. However, Sazo said that with the fast changing world, the Chakhesangs should also concentrate as to how to improve their economy in the present world. He called upon the villagers to choose suitable area of field which would bring more return to boost the economy.
He said that the multi cropping system in a particular area of field did not yield much and emphasized the need to concentrate on specific crop as the land was very fertile and could give more yield and returns.
Sazo lauded the Chesezu village for banning hunting for a period of 3 years and encouraged the villagers to uphold and maintain the resolution which he hoped would result in more ecological balance thereby setting a perfect example even for other villagers to follow.
Several dignitaries including ADC Chozuba Temsurenla, social welfare joint director Maran, women development joint director Chuba Thung, DRDA Phek project director Neposo, DEO Kohima Zaveyi Nyekha, Chekhesang Hoho Dimapur president Vekhosayi Nyekha, ex-MLA Nuzota Swuro, Chetheba EAC Mudongoyi also graced the occasion.
The programme was chaired by Vezhosa Ringa while welcome address was delivered by VCC Puswüyi Nyekha. Report of the project was given by Avizo Ringa, VDB secretary.
