Minister for Public Health & Engineering Department (PHED), Jacob Zhimomi formally inaugurated the new office building of the Executive Engineer PHED, Longleng on August 15 during his visit to the district to grace the Independence Day celebrations as special guest.

According to a DIPR report, in his inaugural speech, Jacob Zhimomi asserted that no government had a magic wand to transform the state overnight and redress all its problems. He stated that the PDA was a very new government and like any other government, planning and execution to provide proper facilities to the people of the state would take time. Asserting that the government and the people were equally responsible for the progress of the state, he appealed to the gathering to stop all forms of pressurizing the government but extend full cooperation and support to ensure peace and progress in the state. “Together we will change the system and strive forward for a better Nagaland”, he asserted.

Emphasizing on the financial status of the state, Jacob said that it has no resources of its own; no trade & commerce and industries to provide job opportunities to the people in the private sector. 

He explained that this was why Nagaland was fully dependent on the central government and the government was the only source of providing jobs to the people. According to him, despite financial constraints, the PDA government was committed to giving priority to develop the ENPO area to redress their grievances. Jacob urged the people to take ownership of public property and protect them. Water supply connection to Longleng headquarter is under process, he said, adding that he had apprised the central government about it for consideration and approval at the earliest.

Deputy Commissioner Longleng, John Tsulise Sangtam in his short speech congratulated the officers and staff of the department headed by the minister and chief engineer for completing the new EE office successfully. He called it a proud moment for the district and the Phom community. 

The DC also apprised the minister and the chief engineer about the lack of water supply in the district headquarter and the problems faced by the people due to it. He added that rain water was the only alternative source of water supply for the denizens of Longleng.

Earlier, a welcome address was said by SDO PHED Longleng sub-division, Er. S. Chuba Phom; invocation was said by LTPBC, Rev. Beau Phom; technical report of the office building was presented by EE PHED Longleng, Er. Imnazulu Ao; a short speech was delivered by VCC Phumnyu; while vote of thanks was delivered by SDO PHED Tamlu sub-division, Er. Chingteng.
