Asserting that many people from Nagaland stranded elsewhere in the country and abroad were preparing to come return home once the lockdown was relaxed, the Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) Thursday said it was the responsibility of the state to receive them in whatever condition they could be since they were the state government’s subjects.

In a letter addressed to the state chief minister Neiphiu Rio, the NPCC president K Therie reminded that schools and colleges were closed, contract employees have lost jobs and travellers on business trips, tourists, patients and attendants were stranded. 

However, NPCC president said it was for the government to decide the future course. Therie said safety of the citizens was important, but maintained that the state was not certain whether the travel route would be free from the virus. The other issue, he said was whether the state was prepared to receive them? “If denied entry in the interests of all, if lockdown is better for all, they should be given monthly maintenance at least Rs.10,000-15,000 per month each,” NPCC president asserted.
