Deputy Commissioner (DC), Wokha Orenthung Lotha has informed that some individuals and groups have been wilfully obstructing the construction works of national highway at km 71.00 to km 101.00 within the demarcated right of way (RoW) for which compensation had already been paid.

According to DIPR report, DC informed that such acts were deemed illegal and were viewed seriously.
It was also reported that “some village council members and government servants” have been actively involved in such illegal acts causing hindrances to the development works of the government.
In this regard, DC stated that such perpetrators if found guilty would be dealt as per relevant provisions of Nagaland Government Conduct Rules 1968 and Nagaland Village Tribal Council Act 1978.
While stating that the construction of national highway was a time bound exercise which must be undertaken and completed within the time frame, DC said that “such projects of NH should not be delayed unnecessarily in the larger interest of the public”.
Further, if such reports of illegal obstruction within the RoW where compensation has already been paid were ascertained, DC informed that appropriate actions would be initiated and those found guilty would be dealt with as per relevant provisions of the law.
