The brief inspection was held after the monthly DPDB meeting of the district held at the deputy commissioner’s conference hall in Wokha.

During the inspection, Yanthan said that development in the district is aimed at addressing the needs of the community and called for contributions from every individual towards the successful implementation of every project.

He lauded the civil society organisations (CSOs) and joint action committee (JAC) for their roles, expressing that they have all fought a good fight for the welfare and interests of the public. He urged the CSOs and all stakeholders to extend cooperation to the construction firm to ensure the successful completion of the remaining works according to the project specifications.

He was also accompanied by members of the DPDB, officials from the National Highways Authority of India, Lotha Hoho, Lotha Students’ Union, various Lotha frontal organisations, and JAC members.
