DIMAPUR, NOV 17 (NPN) | Publish Date: 11/17/2020 12:50:30 PM IST

NH-2 Affected Landowners’ Union (ALOU) Wokha district have announced that the ongoing NH-2 two-lane extension work, which was being undertaken from 83 kms to 101 kms, would not be allowed till their grievances were resolved.

In a representation addressed to the Nagaland Governor R.N. Ravi, Affected Landowners’ Union chairman of New Wokha Village J Rensathung Murry, ALOU chairman of Koio village Chumthungo Ngullie and ALOU chairman of Tsungiki village Yanbothung Kikon said they were “deeply aggrieved by the callous attitude” of the district administration not considering the appeal of the affected landowners, who were being denied fair compensation as enunciated by the RFCTLARR Act 2013.

The landowners said they had submitted a representation to the office of the deputy commissioner (DC) Wokha on September 14, 2020 requesting to re-verify the assessment of property damage in a transparent manner. 

Also, the signatories said that on September 24, 2020, the affected landowners submitted a representation to the DC Wokha expressing their inability to accept the rate fixed for compensation amount to be paid to the land owners.” 

However, they said that no reasonable actions were taken by the DC to address the grievances of the affected landowners. Therefore, they said that the affected landowners had filed an RTI before the PIO, DC Office Wokha so as to ascertain facts and figures, but the replies were not satisfactory.

Pointing out that land holdings in Nagaland were non cadastral except municipality area of Dimapur, the landowners said it may not be proper and convenient for the acquiring authority to randomly fix land acquisition rate in line with cadastral land.

The landowners have, therefore, appealed to the governor to intervene and address their grievances.
