 Nagaland University Students’ Union (NUSU) Kohima campus Meriema has said that the students were facing problems in travelling to campus as the road that leads to the University has been damaged by rain triggered landslides.

In a press release, NUSU president, Chongrokhum, said the roads were sinking and the trees have been uprooted at several locations. The union said the students have expressed concerned over the instability of the road condition, which was posing a threat to their education. 
The union pointed out that even as the roads were being swept away by rainfall, the problem of the damage caused was aggravated by the poor quality of roads.
Earlier, to prevent sliding of loose mud on the road, NUSU said students had made efforts in maintaining the road with the geology students setting up pillar-like structures above the road with tyres. However, the union said such measures were only short term. 
Further, the union said that the road damage has not only affected a section of scholars, but also the professors and staff workers. It also stated that the main road leading to Pauna men hostel has also been totally cut off, forcing scholars to take a different route in the thick forest to attend their classes.
NUSU further pointed out that minor cracks were developing at the boys hostel and could collapse soon and may lead to loss of both life and property.
 In the light of the above, NUSU has urged the responsible authorities to intervene and provide safe roads at the earliest.
