 Roads to have ‘signboard’ not only with names of contractors, EE but also to add with original estimated cost, total project cost along with escalations and various deduction in a form of commission/percentages in the name of party fund, minister concerned/advisor/MLA, engineers, HoDs, departmental charges, finance department, several groups, illegal cash collection at the check-gates and on highways, etc. 

While welcoming the initiative of the deputy chief minister Y. Patton, who is also in-charge of Home and Roads & Bridges announcing that signboard with the name of the contractor and executive engineer to be erected at the construction site during his maiden meeting with the engineers of NPWD after taking over the charge at NPWD conference hall on 3rd Sept, 2019, the Nagaland Voluntary Consumers’ Organisation (NVCO) expresses its appreciation to this initiative as it is solely to improve the quality of workmanship which is the need of the hour. Many a time citizen demands good roads and drainage system. President of NVCO Kezhokhoto Savi, advocate said that every season with the onset of rainfall, several potholes on the road and breakdown of the newly built drainage system clearly reflects on the poor workmanship and quality of materials used. Drainage walls are collapsing with a single rainfall! Deplorable road condition everywhere and bridges are falling apart for a project with huge budget, this is highly unexpected and disappointing. I believe that good quality work should sustain throughout all seasons. In some part of the state literally there is no roads and the so called common people can no longer tolerate this deplorable road conditions and these things are all happening just because of poor workmanship and corruption such as huge deduction of money from the project amount/cost in a form of commission/percentages in the name of Party Fund/minister/ advisor/MLA, various groups, departmental charges, etc. While supporting this initiative to ensure good workmanship and quality work without involving any corrupt practices such deduction in a form of commission, the NVCO sincerely requested the minister concerned to also added original estimated cost, total project amount/cost along with escalations and various deduction in a form of commission/percentages in the name of party fund/minister concerned/advisor/MLA, engineers, HoDs, departmental charges, finance department, several groups, illegal cash collection at the check-gates and on highways, etc. on the proposed ‘signboard’ along with the names of contractors and executive engineer. However, corruption involves in the infrastructural development funds is a serious concern. It is time not to deduct any amount/percentage from the project fund if at all public servants/ politician are serious with quality workmanship.
