Chakhroma G.B’s Union (CGBU) has expressed displeasure at the state government for showing “total disregard” to the plea of the people for public welfare and failure to shift the office of the Deputy Commissioner to its headquarters despite several requests and reminders.

In a press release, CGBU president Thepfukedo Kuotsu and general secretary Atso Gwizan stated that several pleas were made to the government to shift the office of DC Dimapur to its headquarters from the present temporary camp at ADC office building. However, they said that all the requests had fallen on deaf ears and the government seemed “to be least bothered, being intimidated by the threats of few persons with vested interest.” CGBU reminded the government that when the Kohima district was bifurcated and the new Dimapur district was created in the year 1997, the Angami people had “opposed the decision as the Angamis who are also the first traditional settlers of Chakhroma area do not want to be divided.”
However, as it was felt necessary by the government that a new district had to be created for administrative convenience, the union said it was agreed after a series of negotiations to have a separate district for Dimapur with its headquarters at Chumukedima. 
Accordingly, the union said that all arrangements including the office building were made, spending thousands of crores of rupees. However, it expressed regret that even after a lapse of more than two decades, the successive governments had failed to shift DC office to its headquarters. CGBU stated that many departments under DC’s establishment still continued to function in rented buildings incurring huge expenses on house rent. “It is highly objectionable and unjustifiable that after spending huge amount to prepare a building with all modern facilities, the government offices should function from rented buildings while allowing its own building to lie in ruins,” the union maintained.
Stating that frustration was running high and patience getting exhausted among the people, the CGBU has demand that the government clarify whether the DC office Dimapur should continue to function from its temporary camp or should occupy and function from its headquarters. The union demanded that the government declare its stand on the matter to the public before the end of the month of August 2019, failing which “any situations arising thereafter should be totally owned by the government.”
