Minister of Rural Development, Metsubo Jamir said people should give due importance to development especially in the state capital since shortage of space was becoming one of the biggest hurdles for future developmental activities. 

He said this while addressing a gathering after inaugurating Sokhriezie Park below Nagaland Police Headquarters, here, Friday.

Voicing concerns for the need to beautify the state capital to attract more visitors, especially tourists, Metsubo lauded the efforts put into the construction of the park and also expressed happiness at how well it had turned out since initial work for the project begun 10 years back when he was the director, department of Rural Development.

He said it was not too late to beautify Kohima and can make it one of the most beautiful cities in the state by carrying out more of such beautification projects especially with better and wider roads.

He encouraged the people of the capital to be more open-minded and generous when there were road construction projects since that was the most vital ingredient for a city to progress.

The minister said, “People expect development to take place overnight but it doesn’t happen that way. It is a gradual process and we as concerned citizens should be farsighted and leave enough space for development and at the same time leave room for our future generations to also be able to express themselves through various developmental activities.”

He called on the gathering to be forerunners leading the way while helping the younger generations to follow and that mental development and infrastructural development should go alongside each other.

The minister expressed gratitude to the people of Kohima and T.Khel in particular for being big hearted and giving land for people from other tribes to reside and live with respect and dignity. He said, “I on behalf of all the other tribes residing in Kohima thank you for your generosity. We are drinking your water, treading on your roads and we are thankful for the respect you have shown us by welcoming us.”
