Chakhesang Youth Front (CYF) has expressed dismay at the “insensitive attitude and irresponsibility” of chief minister, Neiphiu Rio towards the appeal and demand made by the CYF over the plight of COVID-19 pandemic in the state. 

A press release by CYF president Lhuvesayi Lohe and general secretary, Nyitso Therie stated that, the front had only demanded for equipping the district with basic health care facilities such as BSL-3, additional ventilators, etc but instead, a new Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) came into place “for sending all returnees to their respective districts, including those tested positive that does not require hospitalization and are fit to travel.”
While asserting that it was not averse to taking back “our own people to our district”, the CYF expressed concern that all returnees entering Nagaland should “be properly tested and segregated if found positive (COVID-19) and treated at the COVID hospitals with better facilities.” 
CYF therefore stated that it would not remain blind to any more “negligence and lapses due to the short-sightedness, lack of concern or consultation with the stakeholders in our district” and that the state’s highest office and related concerned authorities are “to be held responsible and accountable for any untoward spreading and eventualities that may arise in the near future.”
