Angami Youth Organization (AYO) has expressed dissatisfaction with the slow progress of National Highway 29 four-lane project in Nagaland and appealed to the contractors responsible for the project to expedite the work at the earliest.
In a press release issued on Wednesday, AYO president, Neinguvotuo Krose, stated that the organization was dismayed at the ‘inactive and irresponsible nature’ of the contactors involved in the construction of the ongoing four-lane road (Nagaland Sector).
Pointing out that the period for construction of road in Nagaland was about six months before the monsoon sets in, the AYO said the current pace of works shows the insincerity of the contractors and the workers involved in executing the work.
Till date, AYO said the public had extended all possible support and cooperation towards the contractors for smooth execution of the work.
It said the public had also reposed their trust on the firms to complete the works within the stipulated time as per specification without compromising work quality.
Further, the organization stated that NHIDCL executive director had assured completion of the project by the end of 2019 and accordingly specific instructions have been given to the contractors on several occasions.
However, AYO has expressed doubt that the work can be accomplished within the stipulated time if the work continues at the current pace.
It has therefore demanded that the agency immediately activate all its assets and manpower to deliver the work. AYO, through the release also cautioned the agency not to give lame excuses on the pretext of evading responsibility.
