Nagaland News

DIMAPUR, SEPTEMBER 11: The Dimapur District Citizens’ Forum (DDCF) has once again opposed the shifting of Dimapur’s DC office to the new complex at Chumukedima.

In its Emergency Executive Meeting held today, the Forum resolved to reaffirm its earlier memorandum to the State Government dated (25/08/2014 and 05/06/2015) and representation dated 6/04/21, opposing the shifting of the DC Office Dimapur to the New Complex at Chumukedima.
In the event of any move or development to shift the present Dimapur Deputy Commissioners’ Office to Chumukedima, the citizens of Dimapur would not be silent spectator and would oppose democratically, it resolved.
DDCF appealed to the Government of Nagaland to listen to the voice of the masses as in a democratic country adding the Government is formed by the people and is for the people.
The DDCF also appreciated the appointment of a new ADC in the new DC Complex, stating that this is a sign of development and growth of the district and will largely relieve the burden of the people in the Chumukedima Circle of Dimapur district.
While appreciating the Government for appointing an Additional Deputy Commissioner in Dimapur, the DDCF urged the Government to pave ways for the conversion of non-cadastral land into cadastral survey land, especially the town/municipal areas so that that it will be free for development in the near future.
DDCF further appealed to the Government of Nagaland that the inter-district boundary issue between Peren and Dimapur be dealt with sensitively without any bias.

It said all stakeholders (affected villages/CSOs, administration) should be taken on board while settling the dispute with a permanent settlement.
