Jakhama, May 3 (EMN):
Advisor for Technical Education and Election Medo Yhokha inaugurated the recently renovated approach road to Jakhama village, about 13 km away from Kohima, on Monday morning.

A stretch of the approach road from Jakhama entry gate to Phema Khel had been funded by Yhokha.

The advisor expressed happiness stating that the same had been made possible with the cooperation extended by the villagers, while speaking at a function held at Yedikha in the village.

He said it was because of the state “chief minister’s love and concern for the village” that the road was renovated as a sheer necessity through additional grant. He also conveyed best wishes from the chief minister who could not be present owing to ‘Covid-19 issues’. 

Yhokha also emphasised on ‘good leadership and effective governance especially at a time when Nagas were at a challenging stage’ while appealing to the people from the village to ‘endorse the leadership of the chief minister even in the coming days’. 

He further reminded the villagers to do away with differences while hoping that unity, peace and love would continue to persist among the villagers.

The overall renovation of the road was monitored by Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) Kohima region’s president Avio Tetso and Zopovil Zao, PA to Medo Yhokha, who are both from the village.

Zhopo Richa, chairman of Jakhama Village Council, acknowledged the advisor for his support and assistance towards the road renovation, adding that even within a ‘short span after his election, Yhokha has shown his commitment towards to the village’. 

Expressing concern over the fact that surface of the road deteriorates mostly during rainy season, Richa requested Yhokha to renovate even the drainage system along their approach road so that it would last longer. 

He also briefed about the landslide which had occurred ‘long time back in the middle of the village’ and sought Yhokha’s help to do the needful. 

Meanwhile, Yhokha also took serious note on learning how the lowly constructed overhead power lines crossing through Yedikha were posing a threat to the villagers.
