AYO against patch-up works; demands ‘all season roads’

A day after the chief minister directed the PWD (Roads & Bridges) and BRO to urgently repair the roads in and around the capital, the Angami Youth Organization (AYO) Thursday said the justifications given for the miserable road conditions and assurances conveyed to the public by the government was not what the citizens were demanding and deserved.
In a press release, AYO president Medo Yhokha and general secretary Rokoketou Sechü said the organisation would not backtrack from the demands made to the authorities not to just patch-up the road that would not even last for a month but to provide the citizens all season roads.
Stating that its demand was to bring to book and make the BRO accountable for the miserable failure in manning the NH-29 and others roads in the state, the AYO said it did not ask for an explanation from the BRO to justify and blame the public. The organisation stated that if the authority cannot provide all season roads then leave them as they were so the visitors to the Hornbill festival also experience the ride.
AYO has asked the authority to immediately stop patching the roads with muds and dusts as the entire town was choking/suffocating beyond tolerance.
Further, AYO stated that it has stopped the repairing/patching up of works initiated by BRO in Kohima on 29 October until the responsible authority assured the public to provide all season roads.
Meanwhile, AYO has informed that an executive council meeting with the range units has been convened at its office premises on October 30, 11 a.m. to discuss the issue at hand. All responsible designated council members have been informed to attend the meeting.
