Janata Dal (United) Nagaland has urged upon the government that aids given to stranded Nagas outside the state should be done judiciously and that no genuine people were left out. 

A press release from Janata Dal (United) Nagaland publicity wing stated that, while empathizing with the hardship that the Nagas stranded outside were undergoing due to the nationwide lockdown, “the safety of the citizens of Nagaland is also of paramount importance.” JDU Nagaland is of the view that “if stranded Nagas can tolerate the hardship for some time, it is much way beneficial for Nagaland Government to shell out few crores of rupees on the few thousands stranded Nagas than to risk the lives of the lacs of Nagas within Nagaland”. While pointing out that “there are genuine Nagas who have not received the amount of Rs. 3000 & Rs. 4000 that was distributed last time and this issue must be immediately redressed,” the JDU Nagaland also stressed that Nagas working in hospitality sectors and in other fourth grade private sectors should be given more preference. 

JDU also appreciated the Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (I) for their generosity to pay for the incoming fare of the stranded Nagas which was the first of its kind in such a situation and “history should be a witness to this kind gesture.”

JDU also expressed that state executive machineries must be allowed to function more independently “from the frequent hassles and interference of political authorities so that life saving decisions are taken and executed without any procrastination.”
