Some of those who voted YES had this to say:
• Yes. We need to move away from the conventional focus of entrepreneurship education on new venture management, business plans and growth and innovation. This is cliche.
• Yes in the last few years that situation has drastically improved. When non-locals are able to thrive in this situation why can’t locals also do well. Why do we keep blaming others all the time?
• Entrepreneurs thrive on chaos, where there are problems, difficulty, roadblocks, they see opportunity…. so yes! Perhaps this question is better directed at new business start-ups who need state and national guidance and support…
Some of those who voted NO had this to say:
• No. Too many illegal taxes still the government is turning into a blind eye and does nothing to do away with it as the corruption has become our new religion.
• No. Overtaxed.
• No. Numerous taxes being imposed from various ‘overground and underground’ with threats and unending demands.
• No because in Nagaland plain people (Non-locals) are always on target of some authorities. Whenever they see that a particular person is earning more they come and demand money in the form of different taxes. Hope The Morung Express knows about the different forms of tax in Dimapur.
Some of those who voted OTHERS had this to say:
• Come on! What’s up with these questions, they are meaningless. Just look at our roads and the lack of basic infrastructure. Do they not tell us that the environment is not conducive for entrepreneurship?
• We keep blaming corruption, taxation and endless number of excuses. There are many other places were the situation is worse than our state, but people still work hard. Here, all we do is complain but we don’t work hard.
