 Raising the issue of the “current chaotic and pathetic condition” of the government of Nagaland, the Civil Rights Forum (CRF) Peren district expressed the urgency to address the gross violations of right to life and security in the state.   

A press release from Civil Rights Forum Peren media cell stated that, the government of Nagaland is showing apathy towards the lives of the people and “is not prepared to combat the COVID-19 fight.” Despite sufficient allocations of funds from the centre for the purpose, the Civil Rights Forum Peren stated that, the position of the state in term of equipment of medical facilities, technical provisions, containment and experts and frontline workers were failing far from the urgent requirement. 

Pointing out that state policies and Standard of Operating Procedures (SOP) are not only a failure but violated by the government itself, the Civil Rights Forum was of the view that “Dimapur and Kohima quarantine centres turn-out to be confinement centre for all stranded returnees where COVID-19 are shared and distributed to all nook and corner districts of Nagaland.”   

Alleging that this was giving “an opportunity for corruptive politicians and bureaucrats to swarm over it in the pretext of collaborating the national programme for combating the COVID-19 pandemic”, the Civil Rights Forum stated that “the government is making the COVID-19 pandemic as a play-thing.”

It also stated that, the blunder of sending the tested positive along with 16 negative returnees to Peren district testified the fact that the incident of Tuensang episode of May 25 “was of intentional negligence or willful ignorant on the part of Nagaland.” In this regard, the Civil Rights Forum urged the government to spell out the position clearly to public, failing which the forum shall be compelled “to probe into the matter and litigate under proper section of the Indian Penal Code in matter of negligence, disobedience and corruption.”
