Kohima: Three youth organisations from Wokha have written to the Deputy Commissioner, Wokha, drawing attention to the pathetic condition of the road along National Highway 2.

Wokha Village Youth Organisation, Wokha Village Students Union and Wokha Village Eloe Ekhung on Thursday submitted an ‘ultimatum’ to the Deputy Commissioner demanding immediate construction of two-lane road along NH 2 that “has been neglected for decades”. 

The three organisations said the widening of existing highway into a two-lane road was commenced three years back but then since then no progress has been made.  

In their letter to the administration, the citizens of Wokha Town said they have been experiencing “immense hardships over the years” because the NH-2, which passes through the heart of Wokha town, is in a deplorable state” turning roads into potholes and streams.

The three youth organisations alleged that due to the negligence of maintenance of roads in Wokha town, movement of public as well as vehicles get affected on a daily basis, posing a serious threat to vehicles and commuters alike. 

In the ‘ultimatum’ submitted to the Deputy Commissioner Wokha, the three organisations strongly urged the department concerned to complete all necessary formalities at the earliest and execute the construction work within one month from September 29, 2021.
