To mitigate further impacts, the government provided cash amounts to the ward chairmen of the Rest House ward and Forest ward to purchase tarpaulins and cover the affected areas.

Meanwhile, adviser to transport and technical education Temjenmenba visited NH-702D in Mokokchung district to inspect the condition of the road and the ongoing work progress on the road.

During his visit, he expressed concern about the deplorable condition of the national highway, as it serves as the lifeline for the districts of Mokokchung, Zunheboto, Tuensang and adjoining districts. He emphasised that his visit aimed to highlight these grievances to higher authorities for early action.

Temjenmenba suggested that the district administration seek assurance from neighbouring villages for their assistance in finding a way forward for the welfare of the people.
