The DC in an order stated that some individuals and groups are wilfully obstructing the construction works of National Highway at Km 71.00 to Km 101.00 within the demarcated Right of Way (RoW) for which compensation has already been paid and such acts are deemed to be illegal and are being viewed seriously.

Further, he mentioned that reports have been received of some Village Council Members and Government Servants actively involving themselves in such illegal acts causing hindrances to the development works of the Government and added that such perpetrators if found guilty will be dealt as per the relevant provisions of the Nagaland Government Conduct Rules 1968 and Nagaland Village Tribal Council Act 1978.

The DC said that the construction of National Highway is a time bound exercise which must be undertaken and completed within the time frame and such projects should not be delayed unnecessarily in the larger interest of the public.
