Phom Students’ Conference (PSC) has expressed dismay over the inordinate delay in upgrading SDO power Longleng district to the executive engineer (EE) power even after attaining full-fledged district in the year 2004.

In a press release, president A Mane Phom and assistant general secretary Amos Phom lamented that department of power in Longleng district headquarters was still under EE power Changtongya sub-division, Mokokchung district.
PSC stated that Peren and Kiphire districts, which attained full-fledged district along with Longleng district, have EE Power at their respective district headquarters. “The Conference wonders if we were intentionally treated in this step-motherly manner without any fault of ours,” PSC stated. Stating that Longleng district needed an uninterrupted power supply for functioning of the government offices and businesses, the PSC said that a proper head of department was required in district headquarters, but “sadly this is not the case as we are not provided with all the requirements for a district headquarter.”
PSC maintained that SDO power Longleng district had “every right” to be upgraded to the post of EE power in line with other district headquarters.
It stated that citizens of Longleng district were paying their electricity charges regularly and hefty revenue was paid to the department every year.
The conference has, therefore, strongly demanded the department to establish and construct a proper permanent office infrastructure for SDO and EE power in Longleng district.
Further, PSC also expressed shock that the power department Longleng had only one pool vehicle, which broke down more than a month, but so far there has been replacement.
PSC questioned as to how the department would fix electricity problems at far off places without a pool vehicle especially in a place like Longleng that had one of the worst road connectivity in the entire state. 
As regards, the conference has demanded the department to immediately provide pool vehicle as the power department Longleng was facing huge difficulties to perform duties efficiently.
PSC has cautioned that failure to fulfil genuine demands at the earliest would compel the conference “to take extreme measures even up to the extent of discontinuing the revenue payment to the department.”
