AYO to impose total lockdown of Kma

DIMAPUR, APR 13 (NPN) | Publish Date: 4/13/2020 1:34:48 PM IST

Angami Youth Organisation (AYO) has announced a total lockdown in Kohima from Tuesday. Informing this in a letter to chief secretary Temjen Toy, AYO president Kekhrie Pfukha and vice president Neidilhoutuo Sechu said the organisation observed lackadaisical approach from the public in complying with the directives issued by the state government during the lockdown, particularly in maintaining social distancing and random vehicular and public movement.

All essential commodities were being transported from Dimapur and there was a fear-psychosis among the people in Kohima that could not be ignored at any cost, it added. “In the failure to come up with timely preventive measures, we are apprehensive of the virus spreading further in our land. The safety of our people is our top priority and AYO is always prepared to go to any extent in rendering our services for the well-being of our people and our land,” the letter added.

AYO also strongly opposed the state government’s move to resume offices. At a time when all stakeholders should be on war footing to combat the virus, AYO felt it was a blunder on the part of the government to come up with such a decision. 

Following reports of a positive case from Dimapur, AYO demanded that the government rollback its decision and not allow offices to resume before April 30.

Meanwhile, AYO has announced exempting certain vehicles and persons from the purview of the total lockdown in Kohima. These include chief minister’s office, home, planning and finance departments, Nagaland State Disaster Management Authority, paramilitary forces, police, home guard & civil defence, medical, NIC, DIPR, fire & emergency services, PHED, media, Kohima district administration, Kohima Municipal Council, people on medical ground and essential commodities-carrier trucks.
