DIMAPUR: Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio on Tuesday said that the objective of setting up various commissions in the state is to gain the confidence of the people, promote transparency and accountability, as well as contain corruption.

Speaking during the inauguration of the Nagaland Commissions’ Complex in Kohima, the CM said that all the commissions in the state are equally important with each assigned to serve the people by listening to their grievances and redressing their queries and needs.
