Police out-posts  (OP) would be set up at Wozuro and Chukitong ranges in Wokha district. This was stated by deputy chief minister Y Patton during his visit to the two places on Friday. 

Accompanied by adviser Mhathung Yanthan, legislator Dr Chumben Murry and DGP T John Longkumer, Patton first visited at Wozhuro primary health centre (PHC) to check its preparedness vis-à-vis COVID-19 where he acknowledged the efforts of civil society organisations (CSOs) to contain spread of the virus in the district.

After Wozuro Range Public Organisation (WRPO) submitted a representation to him seeking a police outpost and check gate in the area to tackle smuggling of spurious liquor as it was close to Bokajan in Assam’s Karbi Anglong district, the deputy chief minister assured a check post would be set up within the month of May. 

Longkumer, who became the first DGP to set foot on Wozuro’s soil, hoped the proposed outpost would benefit the people and proposed naming it Wozuro “Chumpo” (morung of Lothas) police outpost.

Later, speaking at a meeting held at Government High School with CSOs of Wozhuro range, Patton urged them to continue putting in their best efforts to contain spread of the virus. He also encouraged farming by utilising the current crisis to make the State self-reliant. He said the horticulture department was ready to setup cold storages in all districts of Nagaland to assist the farmers in storing their perishable goods to help them export to various locations.

Paotton also visited Chukitong Range and announced that one outpost would be set up after identifying a strategic site. 

After visiting Wozhuro and Chukitong ranges, a brief meeting was held at conference hall of DC Wokha, which was chaired by DC and district COVID-19 taskforce chairman Orenthung Lotha.

The meeting was also attended by Lotha Students’ Union (LSU) representatives. On the occasion, LSU president Ashanthung Humtsoe submitted a representation to health & family welfare minister S Pangnyu Phom through the DC seeking Truenat screening of COVID-19 samples at the district hospital.
