Continuing with the inspection of NEC funded projects, Nagaland APC Kikheto Sema and team visited the botanical garden-cum-recreation park at Jalukie on Tuesday. 

According to DIPR report, Kikheto expressed satisfaction with regard to the progress of the ongoing work and advised the contractor to expedite the work stating that perhaps it would be the first botanical garden and recreational park in Nagaland funded under NEC.
He also directed the Horticulture department for furnishing the latest progress report of the said project. 
Meanwhile, interacting with the departmental officers, Sema regretted that many a times the infrastructures created by the government were not taken proper care after completion and advised all concern department to make judicious use of the facilities. “Public should also have the sense of belongingness of the government infrastructures created for them and not misuse it,” he added.
Mentioning about the beautiful botanical gardens and recreational parks in other cities and hill stations which gives opportunity to the people specially elderly people to enjoy the beauty of nature, Sema regretted that none of the town/district in Nagaland has such facility worth the name. 
With or without NEC funding likeminded people should come together and create botanical gardens and recreational parks so that elderly people can go for walk and enjoy the nature, flowers, different species of trees and birds, Kikheto maintained. Further he wished that likeminded friend circle, colony/wards can come up and start in a small way.
Taking the advantage of visiting the botanical garden at Jalukie, Sema also felt that DCs of every district should take the lead in discussing the issue during DPDB meeting, find out availability of land where sometimes unused government land can be converted for the purpose through policy decisions. 
It may not be of huge size but all concern departments can chip in and make an innovative plan in each district, Sema suggested. He observed that time  was coming for the young leaders where they should not regret and added, “Let us plan for tomorrow, for the city/ town is known by the people, only if some uniqueness is being created”, Kikheto remarked.
APC was accompanied by additional director IPR, Tokishe Sema, assistant development commissioner, Planning department, Zhasa, director Horticulture, Dr.Elithung and officials from Horticulture.
