While applauding its efforts to bring the situation arising out of the recent natural calamity to normal, Eastern Naga Students’ Federation (ENSF) appealed to the State government to continue providing relief in Eastern Nagaland where some of the districts, towns and villages are facing scarcity of commodities.

According to a press release issued by ENSF general secretary Imtichoba Chang, Eastern Nagaland being worst hit, the situation still remained pathetic and that rescue operations should continue to offer aid to places that were totally cut off from rest of the State. 

Stating that the students were most affected, the release pointed out that many students could not return to their educational institutions as roads and bridges were damaged, due to which public vehicles have stopped plying. 

The federation appealed to the government to provide better roads and infrastructure. It feared that officials of department concerned and contractors would not carry out repair work properly and siphon of money in connivance with politicians.

ENSF, therefore, called upon the government to “rescue” the people of Eastern Nagaland who were leading their lives under very difficult conditions. It felt that airlifting of essential commodities, especially to Kiphire, Tobu and other parts should continue until the situation became normal. 

Pointing out that a bridge over Choklo river under Thonoknyu subdivision that connected many villages had been totally washed away, the federation hoped the government would construct a new one. 

ENSF also assured to extend its fullest cooperation to face the challenges.
