Principal director (PD) School Education department, C Shanavas, who has been assigned with necessary monitoring and coordination with other states of students from Nagaland and other Nagas stranded outside, Friday disclosed that he had been receiving around 150- 200 complaints in a day.

Shanavas informed Nagaland Post that there were around 30,000-35,000 Nagas in Delhi, 9000 in Bangalore and 1000 in Mumbai. He said that complaints were mostly from students and working people outside state. The PD, however, said that with the help of the Naga Christian fellowships, student unions and Nagaland Houses in different cities, the government has been able to reach out to genuine cases and help them.

Shanavas said complaints ranged from house owners asking them to vacate due to non payment of rent, to running out of essential commodities or financial constraints.

PD, however, said those house owners have agreed to reconsider in response to his request against the backdrop of the present situation. 

Shanavas said his office had also been calling all the victims and helping them in whatever way possible. He said a complaint was received from Pune through email without any contact details. Shanavas said his office has written back seeking more information. He also disclosed that through the chief minster relief fund, Rs.1 lakh was given to smaller population and 2 lakh to larger population. Meanwhile, PD informed that a nodal officer has been designated for each district in Nagaland, adding that their reports were awaited. 

 With regard to students in Nagaland, Shanavas said it included both students and working people residing in other districts and wanting to go home. Some were without commodities and food, but had been taken care of with the help of appointed nodal officer and disaster management department.
