In another attempt at reconciliation between healthcare workers and security forces, Planning & Coordination, Land Revenue and Parliamentary Affairs minister Neiba Kronu has appealed to both the parties to forgive and forget the alleged assault on a doctor by IRB personnel on August 21 night.

Speaking to a section of media persons at his office chamber here, Kronu, who is also High Powered Committee (HPC) spokesperson for COVID-19, said the State cabinet discussed the matter on Thursday and urged both parties to embrace the principle of “forgive and forget formula”, in the interest of all.

Stressing that the issue must not affect the public, he appealed to both the parties and their associations to work for betterment of the society.

The minister remarked that the report submitted by the independent enquiry committee was timely and satisfactory, adding that the State government had studied the case and discussed it, before entrusting chief secretary Temjen Toy to mediate/initiate a meeting of the parties involved– doctors’ association and police association. 

He claimed that the State government was seriously interested in bringing them together to have a better understanding in the future, even as he stressed for peaceful co-existence between the police and doctors.

“We are confident that the parties involved will come to an understanding on this soon,” he added.

According to Kronu, the incident on August 21 occurred over a parking issue. He remarked that parking often created problem and urged the people to be more disciplined in this regard.

Outer ring roads, flyovers to ease traffic

Meanwhile, Kronu informed the media that Nagaland GIS and planning department have worked out a module for creating outer-ring road, flyovers or bridges to ease traffic congestion in Dimapur and Kohima. He said the departments were serious about it and proposed to take them up with the funding agencies.

On relaxation of the total lockdown, Kronu explained that the lockdown was being relaxed as it had become a necessity for improving the State’s economy, stating that the State government would be focusing on agriculture.

And despite the prevailing pandemic situation, he urged the people to be prepared for the future. He claimed that the government was working on a strategic planning to improve the economy post COVID-19.
