  • The priority of Nagaland govt in the area of infrastructure should be good, stable, land-slide free roads?
    Some of those who voted  YES had this to say:•    There is no other alternative to good roads in Nagaland if the Naga leaders are serious about development and progress in Nagaland. I wish the government would outsource the construction of roads. By now I think most Nagas are not willing to trust the contractors who are doing nothing but constructing roads that will break down after a few months. Some serious work needs to be done. If DAN cannot provide good r
  • Do you trust and believe in the present generation of Naga leaders?

  • Do you support the growing culture of "media-war" in Naga society?
    Some of those who voted  YES had this to say:•    I dont support the media war. Every morning when I see the papers I get turned off. It leaves a bitter taste in the mouth. The newspapers are all about one village accusing another village, or one faction calling the other faction all kinds of names and the Govt and the opposition playing funny games with each other. I detest all this cheap mud slinging. But I say yes, because at least it is better than shootin
  • Does Nagaland state govt have the courage to implement 33% reservation for women?
    Some of those who voted  YES had this to say:•    My dear Naga men, you cannot stop the fact that women are as good and better than men. If women were to become Chief Ministers and Ministers and Municipal Councilors in Nagaland, I bet you that Nagaland state would be a lot better today. I am sure there would be less corruption, there would be good governance and there would be no nepotism. Nagaland needs change today and that change will come about when women
  • Are Naga parents preparing their children to be responsible people in the 21st century?
    Some of those who voted  YES had this to say:•    Yes, they are trying their best as to my knowledge.

So how can their children benefit from it. Parents have to think it hard.•    Its good to see in most of our Naga family parents learned how to care 4 their childr
  • Should the Nagaland govt take 1 step with the people rather than 10 steps without the people?
    Some of those who voted  YES had this to say:•    Yes, the Nagaland govt should walk with the people, but at the moment they are going too far ahead of the general Naga public. This is in all fields. Maybe this is the reason why the gap between rich and poor has increased rapidly during this present govt. What is the govt without the people, the govt must be in tune with the interest and welfare of the people, if not, they are irrelevant.•   &#

    Some of those who voted  YES had this to say:•    Yes,,,, and my Mokokchung council are the best among all the district in Nagaland•    In places like Mokokchung the council with the support of the public have done a lot of positive things. Mokokchung has become much neater, though there is room for much improvement. If it is really serious about becoming a viable tourist destination, Mokokchung needs better basic amenities and its hygiene
  • Do you think there are any role models in Naga society?
    Some of those who voted  YES had this to say:•    Yes, I see no reason why we cannot claim that there are role models in Naga society. No society is perfect, each society has its own share of problems. The Nagas too have their own share of problems and we are trying our best to deal with it. There are many Naga men and women who are working for a better Naga society. They themselves are not perfect, but still they are working to make Nagaland a better place fo
  • Has RTI in Nagaland helped in the fight against corruption?
    Some of those who voted  YES had this to say:•    Maybe not as much as it should. But at least there is some awareness that the common citizen has the power to go and demand information from the government concerning how funds have been utilized. But still then, the government officials are aware that the RTI can be used by the public and so there is at least a mental check in their minds. The Naga public though still will have to work much harder to see that
  • Is money power the most decisive factor in Nagaland elections?
    Some of those who voted  YES had this to say:•    80% of Nagas live for today not for tomorrow/future.•    Yes, more and more it seems like money power is the most decisive factor in Nagaland. It is clear that what we have in Nagaland is not democratic expressions but money power. The immediate consequence of this is corruption. Because candidates spent so much money in elections, it becomes their priority to recover their expenses and the
  • Should the Naga churches be doing much more to fight against corruption?
    Some of those who voted  YES had this to say:•    In all its weaknesses and hopelessness, the Naga Churches has most to gain by taking a bold stand against corruption of all kinds.

  • Generally, are bureaucrats more powerful than politicians?
    Some of those who voted  YES had this to say:•    At face value, it is always convenient to blame the politicians because they are the ones that are on the news. Most of us will be able to name the politicians, but I bet you, most of us will not even know who the top bureaucrats are. This itself is a worry because its the bureaucrats that are responsible for giving the politicians advise and suggestions. In Nagaland the bureaucrats are too smart and too experi
  • Is the Naga public ready to fight against corruption?
    Some of those who voted  YES had this to say:•    Coruption is alien to Naga society and it's therefore unacceptable to anyone who is a real Naga.

NGOs, anti-coruption agencies, legal authorities and individuals must not walk in the shadow of
  • Are you satisfied with the quality of development in Nagaland?
    Some of those who voted  YES had this to say:•    Yes. In the last 20 years, when we compare between the different governments in Nagaland there is no doubt that the present NPF government has been doing the most work as far as development is concerned. It is so good to see that the state government has been taking keen interest in development as their primary agenda. To be fair to others, it is a fact that NPF led government has also been receiving the maximu

  • Is the younger Naga generation losing touch with their history?
    Some of those who voted  YES had this to say:•    Yes, the younger generation is losing touch with their history. This is a increasing fact, no one can deny it. But the issue is who is to blame. Can we blame the younger generation? I dont think so. The older generation has no doubt messed up the Naga issue and the way the older people are behaving is making the younger people sick and tired. Just look at the Naga movement. The older generation has only created
  • Can there be a Naga future without fulfillment of Naga Reconciliation?
