Tuensang, May 8 (MExN): The Eastern Naga Students’ Federation (ENSF) today appealed to all the government departments, companies, firms and contractors to deliver quality workmanship while executing any development projects in Eastern Nagaland jurisdiction.
“For the past good number of years, the Eastern Nagaland has been neglected and turned into a freestyle zone for departments, company, firm and contractors etc and never delivered their best,” lamented a statement issued by ENSF vice president, Manpang Wangyen and assistant general secretary, Kumcho Yimchunger.
While acknowledging the Government of Nagaland for showing “keen interest to develop the most neglected and backward areas of the State,” the Federation expressed belief that it will not only develop Eastern Nagaland but also facilitate the Act East Policy of the Government of India.
It noted that the “unexplored and untouched motherland” was made “waste disposal zone” by the successive governments, resulting in “pathetic and pitiable” condition of Eastern Nagaland in all the developmental sectors. “Now, we demand that the Government should recuperate for the past negligence and wait for occurrence of amelioration,” ENSF asserted.
The students’ body further took “strong note” of the poor quality in developmental activities, particularly in Eastern Nagaland, and warned the contractors and departments concerned that the Federation “cannot afford to compromise the quality of workmanship in any circumstances.”
“The contractors, firm and any company engaged with any projects in the Eastern jurisdiction are expected to execute the work as per Detailed Project Reports (DPR) without any disrepute,” it demanded. ENSF cautioned that action will be taken against those failing to abide by the DPR and delivering low quality and poor workmanship.
