Minister for planning & co-ordination, land revenue and parliamentary affairs minister Neiba Kronu Kronu has assured to take up the Tizu-Zungki river inland waterways project with Inland Waterways Authority of India (IWAI) chairperson Amita Prasad.

During his visit to the area with public leaders, Kronu expressed regret that the project, which was initiated in 2014, had so far not been sanctioned even though a team had come from New Delhi three times and a detailed project report (DPR) submitted to the Centre.
He said that the project was very important for the people of Nagaland under “Act East Policy”, especially for trade with Myanmar.
Kronu said the hydrographic survey of Tizu river was done earlier and this waterway was declared as 101 National Waterways of India in 2016 by then IWAI chairman Amitabh Verma. He stressed that developing the waterway would also boost the economy of Phek and Kiphire districts, as waterway was the cheapest mode of transportation.
