DIMAPUR, APR 23 (NPN) | Publish Date: 4/23/2020 12:00:12 PM IST

 Konyak Students’ Union (KSU) has advised students from theKonyak community not to return to Mon since they would have to undergo 28 days of mandatory quarantine as per the District Task Force’s decision. The Union therefore asked them to stay safe and carry on with their studies wherever they are. 

Appreciating the initiative of Eastern Nagaland Legislature Union (ENLU) to bring back stranded people from Dimapur and Kohima to their respective places in Eastern Nagaland, KSU president Bumang Phaiba and general secretary Phoe Konyak observed that there are more than 2,000 people registered at both the places wanting to return to Mon, including students, patients, businessmen and those on emergency trip. 
KSU said it would be practically impossible to accommodate such a huge number due to lack of quarantine and accommodation facilities in Mon. In addition, it said no one knew when regular classes would resume for regular students. 
KSU said it had suspended it anti-drugs operation drive just before the nationwide lockdown, but came to learn that taking the advantage of the present situation, some miscreants were rampantly involved in drug peddling in Mon district, especially on Assam border. It urged upon those involved to abstain from such activities and warned that it would initiate severe action if anyone ignored its directive. 
KSU pointed out that entire Mon district is most vulnerable since it is surrounded by international, inter-State and inter-district borders.Taking this into consideration, KSU said some 1200 volunteers were organised to protect the people and their land from the COVID-19 pandemic. 
Also in collaboration with police and village guards,KSU said the volunteers were assigned duties at various locations on the borders, even inside thick forests as there were some seeking to infiltrate into the district through forests despite complete lockdown. 
KSU said its volunteers were on day and night look out without any help and therefore, it had written to the chief minister Neiphiu Rio seeking special assistance for the volunteers to procure protective gears.
KSU alsoappealed to the State government and ENLU to look into the issue of inadequate quarantine facilities and protective gears in the district, besides the grievances of students and citizens of Eastern Nagaland stuck in other parts of the State and country.
