Complete High Court within this year: NLSF

Nagaland Law Students’ Federation (NLSF) has threatened to take up any democratic means of protest if the state government failed to complete High Court building within this year.
NLSF through its media and publicity wing stated that as per its federal assembly resolution for completion of High Court construction by 2022, the federation visited the construction site on August 16, 2022 to find out the status of the ongoing project construction.
Nagaland Law Students’ Federation claimed that it had obtained detailed information concerning the delay in construction.
While interacting with a contractor, the NLSF said it was “baffled” to find out that there were 81 contractors in the ongoing High Court Construction, thereby causing problems.
NLSF said that the contractors were trying their best to complete the High Court Building at the earliest subject to the release of payment of running bills by the government.
The federation has expressed shock that state government was not releasing the fund meant for High Court Construction well in time.
NLSF has, therefore, appealed to the state government to start releasing the liability fund to the contractors so the construction works could be carried out smoothly before the end of this year.
It said that the foundation stone of the High Court was laid on May 21, 2007, but the project still remained incomplete after 15 years “making a mockery of the governing system of our State”.
The federation has, therefore, appealed to the state government to speed up the release of funds so the construction of the High Court was completed by this year without dragging into 2023.
