BY | Monday, 13 November, 2023

In the picturesque landscapes of Nagaland, where vibrant cultures thrive, a concerning silence looms over the dilapidated state of several crucial roads. The people of Nagaland, through their grassroots initiative known as “Project Constitutional Justice,” are raising pertinent questions that demand answers from the government. As the initiative gains momentum, the residents seek to understand why vital road repairs, particularly the Thilixu to Toulazouma road, commonly referred to as the Half Nagarjan Junction Road, remain untouched. The uncivilized conditions persist on the Kushiabil road, and the neglect of the Thilixu-Chekiye-Ikishe road construction raises eyebrows. Chare Town in Tuensang is grappling with the absence of a civilized road, and the Tetso College road in Sovima awaits the touch of blacktopping. The resounding question echoes: What is the government of Nagaland waiting for, and when will justice be served to its people?

The Thilixu-Toulazouma Road, a lifeline for many residents, is in dire need of repair and blacktopping. The people of Nagaland, under the banner of “Project Constitutional Justice,” are eager to know why this essential artery remains neglected. The deteriorating condition of this road not only hampers daily commutes but also poses risks to public safety. As the heartbeat of connectivity in the region, the government’s inaction leaves citizens wondering about the priorities governing road infrastructure projects. The need for transparency in decision-making becomes paramount, prompting the awakened residents to demand accountability from their elected representatives.

Moving eastward, the Kushiabil road stands as a stark symbol of neglect. The uncivilized conditions prevailing on this route raise questions about the government’s commitment to ensuring basic infrastructure for its citizens. The people of Nagaland rightfully question why the state has yet to recognize and address the deplorable state of the Kushiabil road. The glaring absence of improvement projects prompts concerns about the larger vision for the region’s development. “Project Constitutional Justice” aims to shed light on these issues and help the residents towards a collective call for a peaceful, legal and constitutional action.

In the neglected corners of Thilixu-Chekiye-Ikishe, the road construction that has been relegated to the backburner demands immediate attention. The residents, fuelled by the spirit of constitutional justice, seek answers from the government regarding the delayed progress on these crucial roads. The lack of development in these areas not only impedes economic growth but also hinders the overall well-being of the communities residing along these neglected routes. The initiative aims to amplify the voices of those affected and urge the government to prioritize these long-overdue projects.

Chare Town, Tuensang, grapples with the absence of a civilized road. The residents, underscoring the principles of constitutional justice, question why the government has not shown any interest in constructing a road in the oldest town in Nagaland which has never seen any road in the past sixty years. The call for justice extends beyond mere infrastructure; it is a plea for recognition and respect for the communities that call Chare Town home. “Project Constitutional Justice” emerges as a rallying cry for equitable development that respects the unique identity of each region within Nagaland.

The Tetso College road in Sovima, remains untouched by blacktopping efforts. The residents, through their initiative, question the delay in providing a smooth, safe, blacktopped road for themselves and students, faculty, visitors to Tetso college. The importance of education cannot be overstated, and the neglect of the Tetso College road raises concerns about the government’s commitment to fostering a conducive environment for learning. “Project Constitutional Justice” seeks to highlight these discrepancies and request the government to prioritize the development of roads leading to educational institutions.

The overarching question remains: What is the government of Nagaland waiting for? The residents, awakened by the spirit of justice, demand answers and action. The silence surrounding these neglected roads is deafening, and the initiative serves as a clarion call for change. Is the government waiting for concerned citizens to resort to the Kohima Bench of Hon’ble Guwahati High Court, filing Public Interest Litigation (PIL) to reclaim their lost constitutional rights? The residents pose this question with a sense of urgency, as they seek justice for the long-standing neglect of essential infrastructure.

“Project Constitutional Justice” in Nagaland serves as a powerful platform for the awakened residents to voice their concerns and demand accountability from the government. The neglected roads, representing a larger narrative of unfulfilled promises and overlooked development, become a focal point for the pursuit of justice. The initiative, fuelled by the collective will of the people, aims to break the silence, ushering in a new era of transparency, development, and constitutional justice for Nagaland and its residents.
