Reacting to the hasty decision taken by the state government for sending the Tuensang-bound returnees on Tuesday, without ascertaining the results of their samples, the United Sangtam Students’ Conference (USSC) has said that “state government must own responsibility for the negligence for crime against Humanity and Human Rights Act 1993.” 

A press release by USSC vice president Sethrongba Y Sangtam stated that, the union strongly demand for immediate suspension of those irresponsible officials involved in violation of COVID-19 protocol. Further USSC stated that, during this nationwide lockdown, the Tuensang bound passengers were sent off without “any food from Kohima quarantine centre to Tuensang district” which shows “unethical and immoral discrimination and step motherly ill-treated and inhuman act by the concerned authorities towards its fellow citizens.” 
In this regard, the USSC has demanded immediate setting up of proper infrastructure with sufficient COVID-19 equipments for frontline workers, medical facilities, ventilators for positive patients and BSL testing laboratory with professional technicians at Eastern Nagaland. However, USSC pointed out that before such facilities is installed in every district COVID-19 Hospitals, all  the  detected  positive patients must be kept and well treated wherever facility is available. 
Conference appealed all the general public of Kiphire and Longkhim/Chare under Tuensang district to extend full cooperation in the fight against COVID-19 pandemic. Conference also appealed to all the returnees to strictly maintain the government guidelines while travelling and during quarantine for safety of all. USSC further directed to all the village council and ward chairmen to keep vigil of the returnees under home quarantine and if any individual is found violating the guidelines shall be dealt according to Epidemic Disease Act.
