Dimapur, Feb. 28(EMN): Advisor for Power Department, H Tovihoto Ayemi inaugurated and unveiled the plaque of the Rongmei Council Nagaland Guest House at Burma camp, Dimapur on Monday.
He stated that till three years ago, under the local area development programme, the government provided INR one crore for each constituency “but the amount was not sufficient for the constituency, and therefore the elected representatives requested the amount to be enhanced and thus the cabinet decided that INR 50 lakh be added to the area development.”
He asserted that over the years, there has been immense development in the entire North east including Nagaland under the BJP government , and also the union minister has been visiting the North eastern states to make sure that with the funds sanctioned, development is actually taking place.
‘We will see lots of initiatives and programmes that will be taking place in our state, so we are very grateful to the union government’, he said.
Ayemi further encouraged the gathering to come together and work for the community and people for more opportunities and peaceful co-existence.
‘It is our moral responsibility and duty to live peacefully and co-exist, to maintain peace and harmony in our land’, he added.
He expressed that the leadership bestowed upon him is a responsibility for him.
“I don’t take it as a status or a luxurious thing to enjoy but keeping all this in mind, in my entire political journey, I have been dedicating to work for the people, and even in the days to come, it shall always be my endeavour to give my best service for the uplift of our people”.
The Joint Chief Executive Officer of NSDMA, Johnny Ruangmei through his short speech encouraged the gathering to work hard for the progress of the community.
