R.N. Ravi advice
Nagaland governor R.N. Ravi on Thursday impressed upon the state cabinet the imperatives of providing better roads, health services, education and livelihood to the people of the state.
At a New Year breakfast meeting at Raj Bhavan in Kohima, Ravi urged each member of the cabinet to set targets for their ministry/department for 2020 and closely monitor its implementation, a Raj Bhavan release said.
He also urged the cabinet to create more institutions for fair governance. The cabinet members reiterated their commitment and dedication to the service of the people of Nagaland.
Chief minister Neiphiu Rio, deputy chief minister Y. Patton, their cabinet colleagues and deputy Speaker Sharingain Longkumer were present at the meeting.
Inquiry: The Nagaland government has extended the period for submission of report by the judicial inquiry commission probing the January 31, 2017 police firing in Dimapur in which two persons died and many were injured from December 1, 2019 to January 31, 2020, a home department notification said on Thursday.
The commission should submit the report on or before this extended period and no further extension will be accorded, it said.
The police firing had taken place during the violence that engulfed Dimapur over the government’s decision to hold urban local body election with 33 per cent reservation for women.
