Kohima, May 09 (NE): The Eastern Nagaland Peoples’ Organisation (ENPO) writes to Chief Minister for extension of date for Inter-district movements of stranded people due to the unprecedented nationwide lockdown.
Earlier, the Government of Nagaland notified that the Inter-District movement of stranded indigenous people within Nagaland was allowed to return back to their respective districts/villages during the period from May 07 to May 09, 2020.
As the set deadline for the movement is to end today, ENPO writes to Chief Minister stating that only few stranded people could be transported during the permitted period, that is to say around 10% from May 07 to 09, 2020, and majority of the stranded people are yet to be evacuated particularly from Eastern Nagaland.
Given the urgency of the situation, ENPO requested the Chief Minister to extend the date for movement of stranded people within the state in order to completely ferry stranded people back to their homes from various districts across the state.
ENPO, further appreciated the state government for its tireless work in this present crisis, also the initiative to ferry stranded persons in distress across the state.
