Dimapur, April 12: The Chümoukedima Town Youth Organization (CTYO) & Chümoukedima Town Students Union (CTSU) today said that the move to shift Deputy Commissioner’s Office from Dimapur to Chumukedima will be beneficial for all inhabitants of the district and those from beyond Dimapur town would not have to endure hardships.
They appealed to the concerned authorities to make necessary arrangements to shift the DC office without any further delay.
In a joint statement issued by CTYO president, Hovishe Naleo and general secretary, Avi Makritsu and CTSU president, Kezhawelie Richa and general secretary, Kenivi Yhoshü, both the organization expressed displeasure over the Dimapur based CSOs opposing the shifting of DC office.
The CTYO & CTSU said these CSOs remained silent when the government initiated the construction of the new DC complex, but now after the completion of construction of the complex building and the office was ready for shifting, they voiced out threatening to disturb peace.
They further stated that in 1997 under the governance of S C Jamir, Chumukedima was established as the district headquarter of the newly incepted Dimapur district and it was chosen without any political influence or pubic demand.
Claiming that Chümoukedima is one of the fastest growing urban landscape today, the organizations said it makes good sense to have the DC office there.
They further said Chümoukedima has vast potential for further development whereas, Dimapur town is congested and has stagnated its scope for further infrastructural development and growth, combined with it’s ever growing traffic woes.
On the demand for bifurcation of rural and urban administration, the organization said it is “absurd and injudicious”.
” It is very unbecoming of the Dimapur town based organizations (CSOs) trying to represent the whole of Dimapur district. They should very well know that they do not represent the whole district and should not oppose developmental progresses for their selfish goals,” the joint statement said. (Page News Service)
