DIMAPUR | Publish Date: 5/28/2020 9:31:00 AM IST

Dimapur Ao Youth Organisation (DAYO) has termed as “unfortunate and unwarranted” the Kohima Village Council (KVC) demand for sending back the returnees to their respective districts and said that it found the demand to be “very hurtful and discriminatory to the Nagas from other districts.”

DAYO through its media cell stated that any civil society organisation (CSOs), be it from Dimapur or Kohima, to realise that the two districts have the best of facilities in Nagaland to deal with COVID-19 patients at present. DAYO said that if the two districts were unable to accommodate and house all arrivals, the least they could do was to provide transit quarantine to those onward bound returnees until the duration of time that tests were complete.
Since Kohima is the capital of the state, DAYO said the first preference on all fronts was given to Kohima including setting up of BSL-3 Lab, adding that all Nagas have the right to avail of the facilities.
Dimapur Ao Youth Organisation expressed the view Kohima Village Council demand showed “lack of empathy for people belonging to sister districts”. It has also urged the state government to be sensitive towards the concerns of CSOs and solicit their cooperation, saying the government cannot fight this global pandemic alone.
Meanwhile, DAYO has termed as “most deplorable and evil act” the abandoning of new-born baby in Dimapur. The organisation stated that such act by the parents was “utterly reprehensible” and condemned “in the strongest of terms.”
Further, it urged the law enforcing agencies to apprehend the culprits and award them befitting punishment without further delay.
