Chessore Area Public Forum (CAPF) has claimed to have found severe deficiencies in delivery of public services in areas under it during a month-long tour.

In a statement by its president Y Kiumukam, the forum said it had initiated a month-long tour in September-October covering all 24 villages under its ambit to inspect the working of government departments and schools in public interest. However, to its utter disappointment, the forum alleged that all the government departments and schools were found to be lacking in their commitment to serve the people.
In the light of heads of departments and staff showing their never-ending lackadaisical attitude towards people and when the general public had reposed their immense hope in it and other civil society organisations working selflessly and relentlessly towards the good of all and sundry, CAPF said the dereliction of duty on the part of the government officials was beyond its tolerance as it hampered various departmental works, which affected the general public with far-reaching consequences.
And amid the malpractices of the officials of various departments, the forum said it had also found that there were various government establishments lying defunct since the date these were set up. This included Chessore SDO (R&B), Chessore veterinary department and Chessore agriculture department, while the Chessore CDPO office was functioning from a rented house and the CDPO was residing at Chessore Old Guest House as the government, despite several prayers, had done nothing so far.
According to CAPF, Chessore PHC and Kuthur PHC were running without doctors for many years now, which was a matter of great concern as the patients were did not have easily access to Zunheboto or Tuensang, the nearest district headquarters from the area, due to the pathetic road condition. 
Besides this, almost all the educational institutions were facing acute shortage of teachers, especially in Math and Science subjects, which required the government to act upon the matter with urgency as the future of students could not be compromised, the statement pointed out.
The forum further alleged that Sotokur EAC was out of station and that the office lacked even the basic furniture. 
And taking note of the myriad problems, CAPF demanded that the government should intervene into the matter immediately so as to minimise the sufferings of the people sooner than later.
The forum asserted that it would continue to put pressure on the government so long it kept on turning a deaf ear to the issues, while hoping that the government would look into the matter with utmost priority.
