Tenyimi Youth Organisation of Dimapur (TYOD) has demanded an enquiry into the blasting of rock at the hill section of Chümoukedima by the contractor during road widening of the NH 29 that caused rock slide and damaged the Nagaland welcome gate, vehicles, etc.

In a letter to deputy commissioner (DC) Dimapur, TYOD president Thejangulie Angami and general secretary Khrozote Kapfo demanded that the matter be probed at the earliest and its findings made public otherwise, it will not remain a silent spectator when the lives of people were at stake in the name of development.
TYOD blamed the construction company for the incident and flayed its engineer while holding the district administration culpable for overlooking the matter even though it was bought it to the notice of the administration in a letter on March 6,2020. 
In the letter, TYOD advised that surface cutting for widening be done from top to bottom and not the reverse just to save time and energy. It regretted that this was not heeded and resulted in putting the lives of people at risk.
TYOD further urged the company to release compensation for the damage caused to individual as well as public property without delay. It warned in the event of failure in taking corrective measures,the firm, its contractors, engineer and district administration would be held solely responsible for any untoward incident.
