Planning & coordination and land revenue minister Neiba Kronu on Friday reiterated that the People’s Democratic Alliance (PDA) government would be giving top priority to improvement of roads and power sector in the State.

Speaking at the 49th Games & Sports Meet, 2019 of Chokri Area Games & Sports Association (CAGSA) at Khulazu Basa in Phek district, Kronu maintained that road connectivity and electricity formed an integral part for all-round development, adding that other things would automatically follow once there were good roads and sufficient power in the State.

He assured that all major road projects, including Kohima-Jessami, Chakhabama-Zunheboto and Pfutsero-Phek roads, in the district would be taken up very soon and that Tizu area would be given special emphasis for power supply. 

He also informed the gathering that the border road along the Indo-Myanmar border and connecting the Phek district would be given priority for economic development. “Now that the election is over, we should now focus on development for the next four years,” he remarked.

Asserting that the PDA government was stable, Kronu said the government under the leadership of chief Minister Neiphiu Rio was serious and committed to provide better roads in the State. Starting with Kohima and Dimapur, tender notice had already been floated in newspapers, he added.

Asserting that the government was determined to provide good roads, the minister also urged the people to unite and work together with the government in this regard so that there was no obstacle while taking up road improvement works in the State.
