Dimapur, December 2: Citizens of Meddziphema on Monday asked the ECI Engineering & Construction Co. Ltd engaged in 4-lane road construction on NH-29 to abide by its ‘undertaking’ given in July 2019 and immediately provide tankers and water sprinkling in and around Medziphema town on the highway to control dust pollution caused by the road construction.
This was decided in an emergency meeting of elders and leaders of both Medziphema Village Council (MVC) and Medziphema Town Mechü Krotho (MTMK) together with Gaonburas to discuss pertinent issues in regard to the construction of NH-29 within Medziphema area.
The house expressed shock and resentment at the negligent, disrespectful attitude of ECI for miserably failing to abide by its commitments given in presence of ADC Medziphema, and the public that they would begin construction of road in Medziphema jurisdiction by October 2019. They had also assured to provide a water tanker along with one supervisor for 24×7 hours duty until the construction work is over in the area.
But the ECI has failed on all fronts, it rued, while asking the ECI to respond through positive action immediately.
The meeting resolved unanimously that the people will be compelled to take further course of action against the ECI in case they continue to neglect the interest of the public. In the event of any unfortunate incident that may arise due to the failure of ECI, the ECI would be held solely responsible by the public of Medziphema, the meeting decided. (Page News Service)
