Pointing out that Nagaland shares a porous border with Assam and the state government may not be able to man all those borders, the Dimapur District Village Council Chairman’s Association (DDVCCA) has urged the district administration and state government to identify such border villages and extend all support to the village councils.

In a press release, DDVCCA president I Khekuto Wilson and secretary Vitho Zao also appealed to all villages bordering Assam not to be complacent in sealing the borders because only a sincere and vigilant approach would make it successful.
DDVCCA also acknowledged the effort of the state government and district administration in manning the official borders besides round the clock duty of border villages Stating that Nagaland can be safer only if Dimapur was safe, the association appealed to the villagers of border villages to extend cooperation to their respective village councils. 
It asserted that Dimapur, the gateway of Nagaland, plays a very important role in many spheres especially during these pandemic crises, adding that role of village councils in the fight against Covid-19 was paramount.
Meanwhile, welcoming the return of stranded Nagas from outside the state, the association has appealed to returnees to complete mandatory quarantine as directed by government. 
Further, DDVCCA appealed to the “rich and affluent people with connections” not to bypass the rules of quarantine period for their sons, daughters, relatives as coronavirus does not differentiate the rich and poor, strong and weak.
As regards, DDVCCA has also informed all village councils not entertain entry into village jurisdiction without completing specified quarantine days and without proper medical certificate by concerned authorities. 
Affirming that it would insist on SOP and COVID-19 guidelines while accepting returnees, DDVCCA said its action should not be construed or misunderstood as discrimination.
