The seventh anniversary celebration of Smart City Mission was commemorated at the Capital Cultural Hall, Kohima with KD Vizo, Principal Secretary to the Chief Minister as the special guest on June 25.
Themed ‘Sabka Bharat, Nikharta Bharat’, the celebration also focused on the concept of “towards a smarter city with our identity” and witnessed a series of cultural performances.
“Towards a smarter city with our identity is very appealing since our identity is what uniquely identifies us from others,” stated Vizo. Therefore, he added, “The best way is to incorporate our unique culture and traditions into the developmental programs of our Smart City Initiative. This, I believe, will give our people a better sense of identity and belongingness at a time when our younger generations seem detached from our roots, as well as stand out to make our city appealing to those who come visit our land.”
While congratulating the Kohima Smart City Developmental Limited (KSCDL) team for the initiatives that has been completed and the ones which are on the pipeline, Vizo encouraged the team to build the four pillars of the Smart City Mission (Social infrastructure, physical infrastructure, Institutional infrastructure) around one's identity with the citizens as the center of attention for each of these pillars.
