Two newly constructed roads constructed under various schemes were commissioned in the state of Nagaland recently. The roads are named after two Naga leaders. The road from City Tower to Hotel Tragopan Junction was named after I Vikheshe Sumi and the road from Dhobinalla (Jakhalu Complex) to Thahekhu Jn was named after Dr Hokishe Sema. A newly constructed road between Khughuto village and Mudtusugho under Pughobot sub-division and the Sakraba – Chizami RD road were ALSO inaugurated recently.
In Pughoboto sub-division, former minister and sitting local MLA of Pughoboto Assembly Constituency, Y Vikheho Swu, inaugurated the newly constructed road between Khughuto village and Mudtusugho.
Inaugurating the road, Swu dedicated it to the people of the area as Huska Sumi Road, a former minister of the State.
In his address, Swu informed that the fresh road cutting stretching around 6 kms was constructed under the Chief Minister’s Road Development Fund with an amount of Rs 50 lakhs. He lauded Mudutsugho and Khughuto village councils for their cooperation in constructing the road without any hassle.
He stated that the aim of constructing the road was to make both the villages improve their connectivity with the sub-division headquarter and also enhance their economy by reaching out to other villages.
On naming the road, the MLA stated that ‘late Huska Sumi was a true leader amongst the Nagas who had the concern for the welfare of Nagas as a whole and not just a tribe. Swu said the road is named after him in order to remind the people about his propagation of upholding the principle of honesty.
