Nagaland Foothills Road Co-ordination Committee (NFHRCC) has appealed to chief minister Neiphiu Rio to provide necessary funds as the working season was running out of time.

According to NFHRCC convenor Supu Jamir and assistant general secretary Chenithung Humtsoe, it was learnt from the Finance department that the file with regard to the construction of motorable road before the onset of the monsoon season was already endorsed to the chief minister’s office. Therefore, the committee appealed to Rio to provide necessary funds.

Stating that it was Rio, who had generously provided the requisite fund to start the historic project in the year 2013, NFHRCC expressed hope that the chief minister would “take care of the project at this crucial time when Nagas are in dire need of the Foothills Road.”

Meanwhile, the committee sought clarification from advisor IT&C, Science & Technology and NRE, Mmhonlumo Kikon on the statement made on the floor of the assembly in the just concluded NLA session that he had inspected the progress (Doyang bridge construction) of the work and found that the contractor’s claim of more than 70 percent of the work being completed was untrue.

Pointing out that there was confusion with regard to the progress of the work, NFHRCC urged Mmhonlumo, to clarify as to why the progress given by the concerned department was untrue.

NFHRCC, however, said that as per the official technical report furnished by the department concerned on February 3, 2021, 70.66% of the construction work was done.

In this regard, NFHRCC said the committee as well as Nagas were “totally confused in regards to the progress of the Doyang Bridge construction.” 

Further, the committee has urged upon the responsible department to make their position clear in line with the technical report as early as possible.
