DIMAPUR, Aug 5 � The movement started by members of The Naga Blog (TNB) � Mission Pothole � to draw the attention of the authorities on the deplorable condition of roads in the State continue to gather momentum spreading across the districts in Nagaland.
It first started in Dimapur on July 28 with a group of young bloggers walking through the heart of the city and planting rice saplings and fishing at every pothole they came across.
The mission has grown bigger with every chapter � Zunheboto, Kohima and Mokokchung. The latest stop was Wokha on Saturday.
The bloggers from Wokha, with all their creative and innovative ideas, came on to the street to create awareness on the deteriorating road conditions of the district and to bring to the attention of the government and the department concerned that something needs to be done otherwise the roads will become a place for crab hunting, mud wrestling, fishing and planting paddy, said Susan Lotha, one of the youth activists.
The movement has been drawing huge response from the public with people from all walks of life joining the youth and cheering them on in their mission.
�I hope the authorities hear the voice of the youth. We are not protesting against anyone, but just demanding our right to the basic amenities,� said a young blogger.
