Dimapur, Oct. 22 (EMN): The Tobu District Demand Committee (TDDC) on Friday lauded the government of Nagaland for constituting a five-member committee headed by the commissioner of the state as the chairman, to look into the proposals related to upgrading of new administrative headquarters and creation of a new district by bifurcating Mon.

The TDDC stated in a press release that the demand for creation of a new district is genuine considering the gap in infrastructure, service delivery system, economic development and healthcare service, etc. besides transportation and communication issues as most villages in the area are situated in the interior of Myanmar boundary, as far as 190 km away from the present district headquarters.

Having submitted all the relevant documents, the committee expressed optimism that the state government might be aware that the demand is a genuine one for fulfilling the needs of the people in Tobu and Moka. It also expressed hope that the five-member committee will not overlook the public cry for “just and effective governance”.

Reminding that Tobu headquarters is the oldest administrative sub-division in Mon district, established at Pessao village in 1952 before shifting to Tobu in 1954, the TDDC said the proposal for upgrading the ADC headquarters to a full-fledged district headquarters was made in 2007 before the demand was included in Home department’s notification.

The TDDC also acknowledged the Konyak Union for considering the need for creation of a new district for administrative convenience during the joint meeting held on October 15.
