Anguished at the “apathetic attitude” of the state government over June 6 mishap in Wokha, involving MLA Kipili Sangtam’s vehicle, the Longsa Village Council (LVC) and Longsa Village Students’ Union (LVSU) said that even after 12 days of mishap the government has failed to fulfill its commitment. The mishap caused one dead and injured three, while one of the injured succumbed to his injuries, June 18 at Civil Hospital Kohima. Pointing out that government had assured the victims and bereft families of assistance, ex-gratia to deceased family and employment to wife of the deceased, LVC chairman, Chopathung Humtsoe and LVSU president, Hayibemo Ezung in a release said: “The irony is that, even after 12 days neither the deceased nor the injured fails to receive even a penny from the government.” Taking serious note of all the neglect, the LVC and LVSU has demanded MLA to personally appear before the two bodies and the victims’ families at the convenience of the latter. It also demanded state government to pay ex-gratia to the deceased families; appropriate employment to wife of the deceased on or before June 30 and medical and financial assistance to those remaining injured persons immediately.
