With the initiative of the chief minister, Neiphiu Rio, relief materials were distributed to landslide affected families of Peraciezie and Pezielietse colonies in Kohima by members of the Peoples Democratic Alliance (PDA) led by its convenor, Chingwang Konyak on August 9.

According to DIPR, the advisor to the chief minister, Abu Metha stated that besides distributing relief materials, the members also aimed to ascertain the actual problems faced by the people due to the unprecedented natural calamities such as landslides and collapse of retaining walls. In addition, he said the idea of distributing relief materials is being carried out at the landslide affected places in order to ensure that government assistance reaches the grassroots levels. 
The Administration, Police, Disaster Management Agency, Army and Para military Forces have been actively helping the public to the best of its capacities for the last few days, he added. He also asked the colony members to maintain records of damages and submit these to their respective chairmen for onward submission to the administration or concerned authority. As of now Rs. 2800 is given to the affected families or individuals as immediate relief by the government, he stated.
Relief materials were handed over to the colonies in the presence of ADC Kohima, Lithrongla T. Rutsa and SDPO (N) Kohima, Ketoukhrielie Metha. The team also visited landslide areas at Peraciezie and Pezielietse.
