Foundation stone laid for Kitsubozou community hall


A foundation stone laying ceremony for Kitsubozou community hall-cum-multi-parking was held at Kitsubozou colony, here on Saturday.
Speaking at the programme, advisor for Technical Education & Election, Medo Yhokha said the progress of a colony depended on the actions taken by its leaders and residents.
He urged upon the colony members to display exemplary behaviour and live up to its reputation and said the future and progress of the colony depended on what actions they take today. Yhokha disclosed that out of 19 wards in Kohima, Kitsubozou was one of the first to get multi-parking project and therefore the members should ensure that the project was completed on time.
He also asked the contractors to focus on quality work and timely completion.
The advisor lauded the colony chairman and other executives for giving their best to secure the project which, he said, displayed that the colony was united.
He recalled how the project was of priority to former speaker late Vikho-o Yhoshü who set the paper works into motion in 2018.
He said late Yhoshü showed great interest and genuine concern for the project and had gone out of his way to ensure that the ground works for project was completed during the present government.
“Although the project could not be completed during Late Yhoshü’s lifetime this project was dear to him therefore I also have the same burden for it,” he said.
He reminded the people that although the government was ready to sanction necessary funds for development projects, there were cases where certain people created obstructions, leading to a stalemate and rendering the project(s) useless.
In this regard, he urged upon the members to do their bit in completing the project at the earliest.
Yhokha also acknowledged advisor for Urban Development & Municipal Affairs, Dr. Neikiesalie Nicky Kire for extending help in the process of securing the project.
Further, he disclosed that a much-needed subsidiary road to be constructed below the existing main road was also in the pipeline.
He informed that since the colony faced water shortage, necessary arrangements to augment existing wells would soon be undertaken.
