Naga Student group wants Nagaland House in Chennai
Dimapur, Sep. 12 (EMN): The Naga Students’ Union Chennai (NSUC) has urged the state government to construct a Nagaland House in Chennai.
The union submitted a memorandum addressed to the chief minister on Thursday, according to a press release from the NSUC. The memorandum, however, was submitted to Minister for PWD (Housing and Mechanical) Tongpang Ozukum during a meeting in Kohima.
The union told the minister that Chennai ‘being the medical capital of India’ is also one of the biggest educational, economic and cultural centres in South India. “The city and the region around is home to many best universities in India, world-class multi-specialty hospitals, one of the leading Information Technologies hubs in India and more than one-third of India’s automobile industries are based in Chennai.”
However, most Nagas cannot afford to avail such facilities, it stated. “And those who come to Chennai for further studies, medical treatment and in search of job, face untold hardship because they do not find a proper place to stay,” it added.
Against such a scenario, it has urged the government to build a Nagaland House in Chennai.
