Chozuba Range Public Organisation (CRPO) and Chozuba Town Road (Properties) Damages CTRPD owners (CTRPD) have urged the responsible authority to immediately start the abandoned road project under SARDP-NE (Chakabama-Zunheboto via Chozuba) in order to prevent any unwanted situation.

In a representation addressed to the deputy commissioner (DC) Phek, the CTRPD chairman, Ketipra Lohe, CTRPD secretary, Kuduvotso Vero, CRPO chairman, Puyoyi Nyekha, and CRPO secretary, Vesupra Luruo stated that vehicular accidents have become rampant due to the deplorable condition of the road, which has been left unattended for the last six-seven years. They claimed that there were many cases of pregnant women and patients meeting untimely death due to the road conditions.

Describing roads as lifelines of the rural people, they said absence of good road has hit the economy of the range since locally produced goods cannot reach the desired market on time. 

On the other hand, they said essential commodities that were brought from outside were too costly.

Further, the two bodies stated that rampant cutting of roads and falling soil have caused massive landslides devastating structures, paddy fields, irrigation channels and plantation projects etc. 

On compensation, they claimed that their amount compared to other routes in the first phase (2014) was much less. In this regard, they appealed to the responsible authority to look into the matter and sanction equal amounts to the affected owners without discrimination.

They also appealed to the National Highways & Infrastructure Development Corporation Limited (NHIDCL) to look into their genuine grievances and requested a one-time payment of compensations to the owners of properties damaged before execution of work.
