DIMAPUR— Nagaland Governor La. Ganesan on Wednesday said that people of the state must give peace a chance and make extra efforts to catch up with the rest of the country, after having missed out on many developmental fronts due to various issues confronting the state.

Speaking during the interactive meeting with the CSOs and HoDs of Chümoukedima at Rhododendron Hall, the governor said many states had progressed by capitalising on the five-year plans rolled by the country but Nagaland missed the bus.

The governor said that Chümoukedima is blessed with good topography, fertile soil, and a suitable climate for farming and business; good educational institutions; and inhabited by people from all tribes of Nagaland.

‘As a district with a vibrant population and with all the right conditions for development, we wish to see Chümoukedima as a developed district, powering and inspiring other districts of Nagaland in our march toward progress and prosperity,’ he said.

He said that it is his endeavor and wish that every district in Nagaland has the four basic infrastructures – education, adequate health care, good roads, and adequate banking facilities.

Stating that the National Education Policy (NEP) 2023 intends to make the Indian educational system more inclusive, flexible, and learner-centered, he urged all the educational centers to keep themselves abreast with the developments and conform to the national policies for the benefit of the students.

He urged the concerned departments to take government schemes, including the state CM Health Insurance Scheme, Ayushman Bharat, Pradhan Mantriv Bima Yojana, Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana, and others to the doorsteps of the citizens so that the common citizen benefits.

He also called upon the district health authority, especially the district tuberculosis officer to enhance awareness about the disease and work towards its eradication by 2025; requested the Public Health Engineering department (PHED) to ensure safe drinking water to all the citizens through the Jal Jeevan Mission (JJM); and create banking and financial awareness in the villages.

He went on to urge the citizens to work hand-in-hand with the government and reaffirm the commitment to the democratic values and ideals enshrined in the constitution.

DC Chümoukedima, Abhinav Shivam delivered the welcome note earlier in the meeting, while various departments gave PowerPoint presentations.
