DIMAPUR, FEB 9 (NPN) | Publish Date: 2/9/2021 1:09:41 PM IST

In another instance of villages objecting to re-alignment of road, four villages—Vidima, Razaphe, Razaphe Basa and Disagaphu- have reacted to the re-alignment of the proposed NH-129A (Dimapur-Peren-Maram).

The four villages in a joint statement have appealed to the  state government to reconsider the decision to re-align the route and revert back to the old alignment in the larger interest of the public and convenience of all.

In a representation addressed to the deputy chief minister & minister PWD (R&B), VVC chairman Pelezo Zumvü, RVC chairman Neiphilie Kense, RBVC chairman K Kruzecha Rio and DVC chairman Joydanam Langthasa expressed shock that the route had been re-aligned towards Mhainamtsi- Ngwalwa-Pachas Pura. They said this was a total diversion from the old plan which was more convenient and likely to involve lesser time and resources.

The signatories pointed out that as per the old alignment, there was already an existing road, which was presently used as diversion route between Dimapur-Kohima in times of emergency, and was found to be the most convenient alternate route.

However, they said that taking the new alignment would only involve more inconveniences as there was no proper existing road and great amount of resources have to be put in to make it motorable. Further, they said that there was difference of about 10km between the two routes, adding that the old route was shorter and more convenient for the public.

The signatories stated that sudden diversion has come as a shock to the people of the four villages who were eagerly looking forward to the early implementation of the project and ready to extend all cooperation to ensure quality workmanship. “We are made to believe that certain forces with vested interest has been applied to the great disadvantage of the public particularly the people of our villages,” the signatories stated.

The four village councils have, therefore, appealed to responsible minister to reconsider the decision to re-align the route and revert back to the old alignment. In the event of the project crossing their area, the four village councils assured to extend all necessary assistance to ensure that the project was implemented smoothly and satisfactorily in their area.
