CTYO, CTSU back move to shift DC office

DIMAPUR, APR 12 (NPN) | Publish Date: 4/12/2021 1:01:56 PM IST

Chümoukedima Town Youth Organisation (CTYO) and Chümoukedima Town Students’ Union (CTSU) have declared support to the move to shift Dimapur deputy commissioner’s (DC) from the current location to Chümoukedima.

In a joint statement, CTYO president Hovise Naleo and general secretary Avi Makritsu and CTSU president Kezhawelie Richa and general secretary Kenivi Yhoshü said they were disheartened to see few civil society organisations (CSOs), claiming to represent the will and disposition of all people of Dimapur district, coming up strongly to oppose shifting of the DC office. 
They pointed out that these CSOs remained silent when the State government had initiated construction of the new DC complex, but were now threatening to disturb peace when construction of the complex was complete and the office was ready for shifting. 
CTYO and CTSU reminded the CSOs that Chümoukedima was established as the district headquarter of the newly-created Dimapur district by the SC Jamir government in 1997, claiming that the place was chosen without any political influence or public demand. 
Mentioning that it was one of the fastest growing urban landscapes now, both the organisations asserted that it made good sense to have the DC office there. They said Dimapur district was inhabited by all sections and communities of Nagaland and encompassed many towns and villages. 
Chümoukedima has vast potential for further development whereas, Dimapur town was congested and had stagnated in its scope for further infrastructural development and growth, combined with its ever growing traffic woes, they added. 
CTYO and CTSU further asserted that Chümoukedima was not a “rural village” but under the administration of Chümoukedima Town Council and had even served as the first headquarter of the then Naga Hills district during British rule. They claimed that the town was inhabited by not one but all communities where everyone was equal and shared equal responsibility.
Terming the demand by some section of people for bifurcation of rural and urban administration as absurd and injudicious, the two Chümoukedima bodies said it was very unbecoming of the Dimapur town-based CSOs trying to represent the whole of Dimapur district. They said as these CSOs did not represent the whole district, they should not oppose progress for their selfish goals. 
Reacting to claims that students would face problems in commuting and other hardships if the DC office was shifted to Chümoukedima, CTYO and CTSU pointed out that there were many schools and colleges located further away from Dimapur town. 
Mentioning how students from other localities, colonies and villages under Dimapur district were facing the hardships now, both the organisations asked whether their burden would not lessen if the DC office got a little closer to them.
CTYO and CTSU claimed that the move to shift the DC office would be beneficial for all the inhabitants of the district and that those from beyond Dimapur town would not have to endure any hardship.
 For the welfare and best interest of everyone from the district, both the organisations called for coming out from “our comfort zone” and accept the beneficial changes that lay ahead with welcoming arms. They also appealed strongly to the authorities concerned to make necessary arrangements to shift the DC office without any further delay.
