Dimapur, March 6 (EMN): The CEO of Indian government’s think tank NITI Aayog, Amitabh Kant, called on Nagaland Governor RN Ravi at Raj Bhavan Kohima on Tuesday and discussed the pressing development issues of the state in general and ‘Aspirational District’ Kiphire in particular.

A press release issued by PRO to Governor informed that Kant discussed several aspects of development like health, education, livelihood and infrastructure which have bearing on the human development indices.

He also said that that frequent transfer of Deputy Commissioner in an Aspirational District is a cause of concern.

Meanwhile, the governor urged Kant “to pay special attention to Nagaland as the state needs genuine handholding to catch up with the rest of the country”.

The update informed that the NITI Aayog CEO will visit Kiphire on Wednesday, April 7 and review the progress of various projects.
