State’s first village helipad at Longjang


Rural Development minister Metsubo Jamir inaugurated the State’s first village helipad at Longjang in Mokokchung district on Wednesday.
Speaking on the occasion, Metsubo said the helipad was the State’s first to be constructed at a village. He mentioned that this was good news considering the fact that many district headquarters did not have helipads, adding that this showed that Longjang villagers were united and had the potential to lead.
Metsubo also expressed his gratitude to the villagers and assured to assist the village in developmental aspects in every possible way even if there was no elected representative from the village.
Earlier, the welcome address at the programme was delivered by Helipad Construction Committee convener T Temjen Jamir.
Temjen said that the helipad would go a long way in benefitting the villagers as well as people in the nearby areas, especially in medical emergencies. He said the helipad was constructed with approval of the government.
Welcoming the minister to the village, the convener termed it a homecoming of a worthy and able son of a “very dear friend of the village”. He wished the friendship to continue even in the days to come.
Longjang Village Council members also accorded a warm welcome to the minister and presented a traditional song in his honour.
