Renovated community building inaugurated in Kohima
Kohima, Sep. 9 (EMN): The commissioner and secretary of Rural Development, Nepose Theluo, formally inaugurated the recently extended and renovated Tsütuonuomia community building at Tsütuonuomia Khel in Kohima village on Thursday.
Speaking at the inaugural programme, Theluo lauded Tsütuonuomia, one of the four clans of the village, for judiciously utilising money assisted by the Rural Development for the project. Pointing out the problem with water scarcity in the state capital, Theluo asked Tsütuonuomia members to come up with a proper plan for realising water harvesting and conservation to cater to the needs of the citizens, who are residing in a vast area belonging to the clan in Kohima.
The officer informed that the ministry is emphasising on good leadership for proper implementation of developmental works in the village. He also reminded how leaders in the village level should be acquainted with information technology since more responsibilities are being entrusted to the rural local bodies for good governance and developmental projects by the government.
Theluo also apprised that the state would be preparing for the People’s Plan Campaign which would commence from October 2 to January 31 next year. He further reminded the villagers about their motto while asking them to persist in advocating unity in the village.
Thepfuvilie Suohu, chairman of Tsütuonuomia Khel Council, informed that about INR 45 lakh has been spent for extending and renovating the community building, adding that INR 18 was aided by the Rural Development.
He acknowledged the “unique type” of administration which exists in each clan of Kohima village while he also asked the villagers to persist in setting good examples by implementing meaningful projects in their jurisdiction for others to follow suit.
He also gave an account on the completed and upcoming projects of the community.
Meanwhile, the community building has Tsütuo view point, control room, Tsütuo hall, Sozhieba hall, executive room, library, Krotho offices, kitchen, community latrines, 50,000 capacity litres of underground water, reservoir tank, and 10,000 litres capacity rain harvesting tanks.
The community building was constructed on a historical place called Sozhieba where their ancestors had a bird’s eye view of the whole of Kohima and used to perform traditional rituals in the past days.
