Lone Rajya Sabha MP from Nagaland, KG Kenye, who attended Northeast Frontier Railways (NFR) Meet 2019 at NFR Headquarters Maligaon on Friday, raised several issues regarding the Dimapur Railway station. Eleven MPs from six North East States held a meeting with a team of senior railway officials led by general manager of NFR, Sanjive Roy as part of the efforts by Indian Railways to reach out to people through their elected representatives. 

At the meeting, Kenye demanded that the divisional headquarters, currently held by Lumding in Assam, be restored back to Dimapur. 

Pointing out that Dimapur railway station being the second highest grosser of revenues in the North East, the MP said justice should be done in this matter and not let nepotism or step motherly treatment obstruct its due share. 

MP also urged the railway authority to draw up a master plan for Dimapur railway station to provide basic amenities and state of the art technologies to be on a par with the best stations around the country. 

Further, he appealed to the railway authorities to reserve at least 75% (Grade III and Grade IV) of the employment for the local qualified youths of the North Eastern States. He said justice was not done in earlier case with majority of the posts being taken up by the outsiders.

Besides, MP also demanded expediting Dimapur-Zubza railway lines and Dimapur-Tizit railway lines.
