Dimapur District Citizens’ Forum (DDCF) has expressed concern over current condition of roads and bridges in Dimapur and urged the responsible department to ensure that the contractor completes the work at the earliest before the citizens take up the issue. In a press note, DDCF president Y Kikon and general secretary Richard Haolai said roads in most parts of Dimapur were neglected for so long that some were not even walkable and have become worse than roads in rural areas.

The forum said, Dimapur the commercial hub which caters to the needs of people even from neighbouring states, has been left without proper roads and bridges as if there existed no government or competent authority that cared.

DDCF, therefore, requested the responsible authority and department to take necessary steps to repair such roads at the earliest. Further, the forum said it has taken serious note of the “snail speed” pace of work of the Dhansiri river bridge connecting Walford and Purana Bazaar. 

As regards, DDCF has questioned the government if a time limit has been set for the completion in the DPR? “If ‘yes’, why is it not enforced? If ‘no’, how work has been allotted without time frame?” 

Meanwhile, the DDCF has cautioned the government that the patience of citizens were running out and situation could turn ugly if things were not done on time accordingly with regard to all developmental activities.
