DIMAPUR, JULY 24: Under the initiative of MLA from Atoizu, Picto Shohe, a consultative meeting was held on July 21 at Khelhoshe Polytechnic Atoizu (KPA), which the District Administration, KPA College Administration, Sumi Hoho and Sumi frontal organisations, Atoizu area civil societies and landowners of KPA attended.
The members had a threadbare deliberation on the issues pertaining to up-gradation of KPA, informed a press release by the Sumi Hoho on Saturday.
They resolved to urge the Government of Nagaland to expedite the processes of establishing a full-fledged Degree Engineering College at KPA and start the first batch by 2022 “without any more excuses since there are enough infrastructural facilities to accommodate more than 60 students in a batch”.
Sumi Hoho appealed to the Deputy Chief Minister, who is also the Minister for Home, Roads and Bridges, to repair the road connectivity to KPA, i.e. from Akuluto to Khitsakita via Asukhuto and from Doyang to Atoizu; and also to create a Police Outpost at Asukhuto where KPA is located.
It expressed gratitude to Minister for Public Health Engineering Department, Jacob Zhimomi for assuring to provide water supply facility to KPA at the earliest.
The landowners reaffirmed their earlier decision to sell the land outright to the Department as per the scheduled rate of the Government “which will be free from all encumbrances”.
The landowners and local-based organisations assured their fullest co-operation to the Government in the processes of up-gradation and in all endeavours.
The Sumi Hoho, in its executive committee meeting held on July 23, reiterated the earlier resolutions of the Hoho on the up-gradation process of KPA. The Hoho further resolves to stand in full support of KPA authority “in every move for the up-gradation processes and will not be a mere silent spectator when someone tries to sabotage the process of KPA up-gradation”.
