Kohima, April 7 (EMN): As part of its civic action programme, the 78th battalion of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) constructed two toilets with modern facilities at two localities in Sechü Zubza, the sub-divisional headquarters of the western Angami region.

The facility was inaugurated by Sarbjit Singh, DIGP.

The toilets have bathroom facilities and a water storage tank facility. One of the toilets is located at Liezha-A colony, near the State Bank of India complex while the other is located at Chazoukhu in Kherüthi-A colony.

In his address, the DIGP expressed happiness that the CRPF at Sechü Zubza was doing ‘very well’ in catering to the needs of the area’s villagers.

Stating that the battalion had constructed water storage tanks for some interior villages during the previous year as well, he lauded the unit. He has urged them to contribute to the welfare of the villagers even more.

Also, the commandant of the 78th battalion of the CRPF Neeraj Yadav has assured more such programmes in the future with the objective to addressing the grievances of villagers and to provide them with basic amenities.

Saying that the CRPF will try to get more funds to meet some of the needs of the villagers, Yadav requested the DIGP of CRPF to release more funds to undertake more activities.

The commandant also expressed gratitude to the village’s leaders and the public of Sechü Zubza besides neighbouring villages for cooperating with the CRPF.

Yadav regretted that more could have been done if not for the paucity of time and budget. Nonetheless, he expressed hope that more programmes would be organised for villages.

Speaking on behalf of the village, the president of the Sechü Zubza Youth Organisation, Vikaetouzo Meyase, thanked the CRPF for extending help through the force’s Civic Action Programme.

“This initiative is a step towards keeping the village neat and clean,” Meyase said.
