Sanis gets fresh lease of life

Wokha: Sanis SDO (Civil) Headquarters in Wokha district is now ADC Headquarters which is said to be a long-cherished dream of the people of the district.

In his address after the ceremonial opening  on Thursday morning, Chief Minister TR Zeliang said the upgradation will usher in a new era of growth and prosperity for the Sanis sub-division and also wished for the establishment of SDEO Office and upgradation of Government High School Sanis to Government Higher Secondary School Sanis.

Sanis sub-division covers the entire Lotha Middle range and prominent villages of Wokha like Pangti and Lakhuti and Doyang Hydro Electric Project are located within its jurisdiction. The subdivision has three EAC circles at Sungro, Aitepyong and Lotsu, and administers one of the biggest areas covering about 28 villages. It also has potential of mining minerals like coal, petroleum, stone etc.

He said, "It is also an important transit point as it connects with Golaghat district of Assam. This has immense potential for trade and commerce and will provide job opportunities for youth."


On road connectivity, Zeliang informed that the State has been able to get sanctions for several major roads from the government of India and work is already being carried out for 60 kms of Wokha-Merapani road by NHIDCL which has been sanctioned at a cost of around Rs 191 crores.
