A three-member delegation of Eastern Nagaland Legislators’ Union (ENLU) comprising its convener and Health & Family welfare minister S Pangnyu Phom, general secretary and SCERT & IPR adviser, Toshi Wungtung and Department of Under Developed Areas (DUDA) adviser Bongkhao Konyak called on NITI Aayog vice-chairman Dr Rajiv Kumar here on Thursday. The three ENLU members were accompanied by senior State government officials. 

The delegation impressed upon NITI Aayog the desire of the people of Eastern Nagaland for development of various sectors like road connectivity, health, tourism, agriculture, etc. 

Apprising the vice-chairman about the various problems faced by the people of the area, Pangnyu pointed out that the four districts of Eastern Nagaland were totally underdeveloped. He expressed the hope that the commitment made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on February 22 this year at Tuensang for development of Eastern Nagaland would be taken up by Government of India with all seriousness.

On his part, Toshi Wungtung thanked Kumar for giving his time to the delegation to discuss the issues faced by people of the region. He said project proposals had been identified for certain thrust areas as per urgency. 

Highlighting the dismal state of affairs in the four districts, which also happen to be among the most remote districts in the State, Wungtung appealed to the vice-chairman to take up the issues expeditiously.

Welcoming the delegation, Kumar asked them to submit detailed project reports on thrust areas so that NITI Aayog could take them up with line ministries. He assured to extend all possible help in this regard.

The delegation was accompanied by DUDA joint director Dr Anungla Imdong Phom and New Delhi Nagaland House principal resident commissioner Jyoti Kalash and deputy resident commissioner Kethosituo Sekhose.
