Over the past years, we have seen a drastic change in the headlines of Nagaland. Recognition of Nuiland, Chumukidima, Tsiminyu, Noklak and Shamator as the new districts of Nagaland and Tikhir as the recognized tribe of Nagaland. Which indeed, as a layman made me think about Noksen Town being the oldest town of Tuensang District is still at the level of SDO (CIVIL) and so far no intention of upgrading it to ADC Hq. However, looking at the present scenario no organization will take the risk of dealing with this particular topic to be debated at a higher level. The reasons are
- Educational Sector: The existing High School in Noksen Town is on the verge of a downgrade. The educational sector is at its lowest point and therefore when we reflect on the educational system at village level we are nowhere to be found in the map.
- Health Sector: Having a strict health-conscious, who doesn’t want to have a better health system. But how is our medical department doing? Are there any flaws in PHC? What does the database indicate about the health sector of the population? How can we improvise it, if there are any issues in respect of the health sector? How many doctors and nurses are stationed at present? What is the intake/capacity of the Hospital?
- Infrastructure Development: When I say infrastructure development it implies both Government and private sector. Up to what level we are at in respect of infrastructure development? Has there been any transitions since the inception with regard to development in infrastructure.
- Agricultural Sector: What is the annual income of a household through agricultural means? Whose duty is it for promotion of agricultural activity?
Noksen area has been placed in a boiling pot when we come to talk about political scenarios. However, the 2023 election has proved that the young minds have finally decided to walk and not only talk. I believe that it’ll bear a sweet fruit and not sour.
Those were just some of my random calculations which I felt the necessity to share with you intellectuals. So that, we can come up with a fine solution for the betterment of all. I strongly believe that the present Government of Nagaland will pay much heed to the long unsolved problem of the area through its elected MLA of the concerned. However, on the contrary to it the public of Noksen Area in particular should work tirelessly for the upgradation of Noksen SDO ( CIVIL) TO ADC Hq. and not only depending on some particular groups or individuals as it is the responsibility of all.
I am just a lay man with no knowledge but I felt the keen interest in sharing my thoughts with you all.
