PPC to renovate Longleng-Changtongya road
Dimapur, July 6 (EMN): With the worsening of road condition every passing day between Longleng and Changtongya, Phom People’s Council (PPC) has decided to initiate renovation of the said road from July 8.
PPC president Chingan has informed this at the monthly meeting of Longleng District Planning and Development Board (DPDB) on July 6 in the conference hall of the Deputy Commissioner, Longleng, held under the chairmanship of the Parliamentary Secretary of Land Resources and Excise BS Nganlang Phom. Chingan has urged the members for donation towards the road works.
Supporting the Phom Peoples’ Council (PPC) initiative, Nganlang Phom requested the DPDB members for voluntary donation for renovation of Changtongya and Longleng road which is in a deplorable condition thereby threatening the lives of travellers and passengers.
Stating that many lives were lost and caused problems to the people due to dilapidated condition of the road, he appealed to the members, NGOs, individual and other agencies of the district to volunteer their contributions. He expressed his view to file PIL, not against anyone but to compensate the road accident victims. He also donated Rs 50,000 for renovation of the road and urged to utilise the fund judiciously for the purpose.
He urged the officers not to consider as punishment for posting in Longleng but exhorted them to take upon as a challenge and a blessing to work for the uplift of the people. He advised the members to continue with the task of providing better service to the people and change the scenario of the district and to attend the important official meeting compulsorily without deputing their subordinate officers. He also urged the officers to utilise the chopper service available in the district which is cheaply available on passenger’s basis.
The chairman lauded the DPDB members for upholding the monthly activities of the district through their active participation in the meeting despite of his absences.
While reviewing the previous agenda for creation of EAC Head quarter at Namching and up-gradation of EAC Headquarter Yongnyah to SDO (C) post, Nganlang urged the respective administrative officers to arrange the particulars to fulfil the criteria and submit to the DPDB at the earliest for onward submission to the government for approval.
The board approved the LADP schemes for the current year 2017-18 for two assembly constituencies. The DPDB members also voluntarily donated cash according to the sizes and resources of the department.
ADC Longleng, Temsu Wati, urged the HoDs to submit the shortfall of officers and staff in their respective department to the district administration for necessary arrangement for the forthcoming general elections. He also asked the PPC to report the progress of the road renovation in the next DPDB.
