Mokokchung, April 29 (MExN): The newly constructed Deputy Commissioner Office Complex in Mokokchung was inaugurated by the Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio on Friday.
On the occasion, the CM acknowledged the land owners for their contribution, stating that since most of the land and its resources belong to the people, they should give land to the government for development.
As per updates from the DIPR, Rio said that most government buildings in the state were constructed right after the attainment of statehood and need to be replaced. Complimenting the design and workmanship of the new office, he said that when the time comes, other districts should also consult architects and come up with proper building designs like the one which is being inaugurated. He further stated that the Administration and Police departments are two of the most important departments, and urged them to build a good relationship.
The Chief Minister said that the first duty of the district administration is to keep and maintain good relationship with the people so that the administration becomes smooth. He also urged the people for their support and co-operation with the district administration for all-round development saying that in the absence of the citizens’ support, administration alone cannot function.
Short speeches were delivered by Minister for Rural Development Metsubo Jamir; Advisor, CAWD & NSDMA, Kazheto Kinimi; Commissioner, Nagaland, Rovilatuo Mor; and Kichu Clan, Mokokchung Village, on behalf of land owners.
The programme was chaired by DC Mokokchung Shashank Pratap Singh and vote of thanks was proposed by EAC (HQ) Imtinungla Longkumer while the dedicatory prayer was pronounced by Rev Temsuwati Kichu, Associate Pastor MTBA.
