Kronu urges officers to focus on uplifting village economy
Kohima | November 23
Minister for Planning & Coordination and Land Revenue Neiba Kronu today challenged Chakhesang officers to focus on upliftment of the village economy.
Kronu said that the society will never progress unless the village economy is improved.
Addressing the 20th general session of Chakhesang Gazetted Officers’ Association (CGOA) here, Kronu also urged the Chakhesang officers to pay special attention towards economic prosperity.
He called upon the officers to encourage the people to venture out and not to depend only on government job as government cannot provide job to all.
He said if we can make good road and generate power then other things will slowly catch up.
He informed that the state government is paying special attention towards border road connectivity with Myanmar.
Stating that Myanmar wanted to connect road with Nagaland, he said once it is done, it would greatly help the state’s economy.
He said Nagaland is living in a broken society as the apex body Naga Hoho and also different Naga civil societies are not in proper shape while there is the unresolved Naga political issue.
“There is very less dedicated officers while the government faces severe problem for transfer and posting,” he said. He also stated that peaceful and friendly elections is over and now is a time for all to talk about development and progress for the next four year.
He said that all the major roads in Phek district including Kohima-Jessami, Chakhabama-Zunheboto and Pfutsero-Phek would be taken up soon.
Stressing on the need to adopt civic sense in this modern society, Kronu said that he have not seen any nation progress without civic sense.
He said Chakhesangs have less number of engineers and doctors but more NCS and NPS officers playing important role in the administration and law enforcing set up.
Presently, the CGOA has over 700 members.
Generate creative ideas: Dawhuo
CGOA president Zhothisa Dawhuo in his presidential address challenged the Chakhesang officers wherever posted to be pro-active and generate creative ideas.
He also called upon them to be more effective and responsive to the needs and demand of the changing society. Further, Dawhuo challenged the officers to live up to the expectation of the people and join hands and move forward with truthfulness and dedicated service and build the Association truly instrumental for the well being and advancement of the society.
