 Khezhakeno village was declared an ‘LED lighted village’ on July 27 in a program organized by the Chuketshe society in collaboration with Khezhakeno village council at Khezhakeno village council hall.

A DIPR report said that Medovelo Sono, in his welcome address, expressed gratitude to all the dignitaries and the public for coming and making it a remarkable program. 

He said that they initiated this 100% LED lighted village project in July 2017 with the sole purpose of lowering power consumption as the area transformers break down often and load shedding is common in the village. 

After the switch-over to LED lights, the consumption of power reduced to a great extent to 20200 watts from 2250000 watts, approximately which, Sono said, could be considered a great achievement for the village.  

DC Phek, Orenthung Lotha, delivering his speech, congratulated the village and the Chuketshe society in particular, for taking up the initiative and achieving the 100% LED village goal which, he said was one of a kind in the district. 

He apprised them about the benefits of using LED bulbs which are environment friendly. He expressed hope and belief that Khezhakheno village would be a Naga heritage museum in the near future. 

“As a stakeholder we should do our part and not solely depend on the government” Orenthung said.

The DC further said that under the Government of India there were 41 flagship programs for village development with facilities to be provided to towns and to urbanize villages. He also assured the people that more EAC posts will be created for the district.

Later in the program, the Act of Declaration of the village as an LED lighted village was officially marked with a certificate of commendation by the Deputy Commissioner.

Short speeches were delivered by president CPO, Kekhwengulo, VCC, S. Kepfhelhou Ladu, addl. secretary & addl. director ATI, Kevekho Kevin Zehol and, president TPO, Timikha Koza, advocate.

Joshua Koza “mandated the Signatory pledge” to all the village khels and framed specific rules to uphold the LED Lighted village, the report stated.

Pastor, KCRC Dikha Sono invoked God’s presence, a special song and a folk song was presented by Mvuko Koza and D. Neingolo Koza & troupes respectively. 

The program concluded with a benediction prayer from pastor KBC, Khupo Koza.
