APO appreciates govt for road infra work in Kohima

KOHIMA, AUG 5 (NPN) | Publish Date: 8/5/2019 11:34:07 AM IST

Angami Public Organisation (APO) has extended its full support and appreciation to the State government for taking up road construction work, black topping of roads and construction of retaining walls, nullahs, footpaths and protection railings for pedestrians in the State Capital. 

According to APO, no proper and quality construction activities were witnessed in Kohima following creation of Nagaland. But now, it was visible to everyone, for which it appreciated the State government, besides lauding the contractors for doing remarkable work.

APO stressed that roads were the mirror of the State, for which many roads at various colonies here had been developed, though some colonies were yet to witness such development. 

Though road construction was on the verge of completion, APO expressed apprehension that the PHE department could start damaging the roads as these had even in the past. 

Expressing fear that the department could lay huge pipes where required, besides laying of cables lines, and admitting that water was essential, APO asked the departments concerned to exercise caution while carrying out pipeline works.

Asserting that it stood for truth and welfare of the people, APO urged the government, contractors and commercial establishments like shops to follow the directives, especially in the state capital, like the black topping should reach the nullah on one side and the footpath on the other side as a small portion of the road left without black topping would spoil the road. It requested the contractors in the town to take this up before completion of the black topping. 

Mentioning that road constructions were yet to be covered in many colonies, the organisation requested the government to take up the works as soon as possible. It also asked all shopkeepers on both sides of the road to clean their surroundings and the road every morning before 5am. If any shop failed to maintain proper hygiene, civil society groups might request the authority to cancellation the shop’s permit, it warned. 

APO further urged government to take up with contractors of four-lane highway constructions to complete the ongoing works in a stipulated time as Nagas had been suffering so much due to the construction works. It said the contractors should not prolong the work as every road construction work was given a timeframe of three years by the Centre, adding the timeframe had already elapsed by now. 

It stated that development works for the people should be looked into with utmost seriousness.
