Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways, Shipping Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation, Nitin Gadkari, strongly suggested that land should be made available for development of roads and there should not be any hindrance to developmental activities.
According to a press release by PRO Nagaland House, New Delhi, Gadkari said this in a discussion with a state delegation led by PWD minister Tongpang Ozukum at Transport Bhawan, New Delhi on July 17. The others included minister Temjen Imna Along, adviser- H. Khehovi Yepthomi and PDA chairman Chingwang Konyak.
The delegation held a thorough deliberation on issues regarding the improvement and up-gradation of the deplorable roads in the state with the union minister, PRO said.
Attention of the union minister was also drawn towards the urgent need for rehabilitation of old and weak bridges in the state.
Ozukum and his team also reminded the union minister about the construction of the 2 lane Trans-Nagaland Highway (Foothill Road) to be taken up in phases, about which the Prime Minister and minister in-charge of MoRTH had been apprised about by chief minister, Neiphiu Rio and deputy chief minister, Y. Patton before.
After a patient hearing, PRO said Gadkari responded positively and said that his ministry was willing to extend all help but he also stated that acquisition of land should be the look out of the state government.
It may be recalled that Nitin Gadkari on June 13 last had assured a delegation led by Nagaland chief minister Neiphiu Rio, that the Centre would be declaring more National Highways (NHs) in the state and asked the state government to expedite implementation of the ongoing projects.
He also asked the state to submit a list of important roads in the State to the Centre. Gadkari had further informed the delegation that he would be visiting the state to review the ongoing road projects.
While urging Gadkari to declare more roads as NHs, Neiphiu Rio had requested Centre to give top priority to road development in different parts of the state as well.
