With the nationwide lockdown due to COVID-19 pandemic since March 23, many Nagas living outside Nagaland were left stranded, some even losing their jobs and rental accommodations. However, for these unfortunate people the state houses like Nagaland House in Kolkata and Delhi have been helping out to the best of their capacities. 

Speaking to Nagaland Post, Nagaland House Delhi DRC Kethosituo Sekhose stated that they had been reaching out to all stranded students and workers in Delhi and also distributed essential commodities to more than 500 people. With the help of student unions, churches and elders they have been extending help to the needy. He also said that the officials do not have exact data of how many Nagas reside in Delhi because forty percent of the people do not register themselves. He added that they could maintain the numbers during this critical time as people call and give their details. Sekhose conveyed due to distances within Delhi and with many residing in neighbouring states like Noida and Gurgaon, movement to reach out becomes difficult due to the lockdown. He said that they had been ensuring the safety and comfort of the people there and further advised not to panic but pray for people stranded outside.  

DRC Kolkota Renbeni Ngullie stated that they had reached out to more than 400 stranded Nagas and had been giving shelter to few at Nagaland House Kolkota. They had been able to give some cash relief, daily commodities and food.  She added that most of them were working people who had lost their jobs or have not been paid.
