Correspondents KOHIMA, FEB 15 (NPN) | Publish Date: 2/15/2020 1:07:27 PM IST
Opposition MLA, Khriehu Liezietsu Saturday questioned the government as to why the construction of Kohima by-pass road was made into two-lane instead of four-lane. Raising this issue during the discussion on cut-motion of the budget, Khriehu sought a response from the minister in-charge.
Supplementing Khriehu, Leader of Opposition, T.R. Zeliang demanded to know that when the Ministry itself had sanctioned for construction of four lane road, why did the government revert to tow-lane.
Moreover, he said he No objection Certificate was already issued by Meriema and Kohima village for the said project. 
He further cautioned that once people start to settle by the road side, there will be no more provision for construction of four-lane in the future. He lamented that many projects in the state were delayed due to our negligence.
In this regard, deputy CM and minister in-charge of National Highway, R&B Y. Patton clarified that the proposal was rejected by the ministry. However, Patton said he would pursue the project with the concern ministry.
