Whole Jalukie Village Council (WJVC) said the designated COVID-19 hospital at community health centre (CHC), Jalukie town should not be shifted to any other place nor any of equipment relocated at any cost. 

A consultative meeting of the council held at the residence of Kumui Nring, chairman Jalukie Pumling Nko Jalukie Town, on Wednesday also declared full cooperation in the event of any necessity for setting up a new COVID-19 hospital in any part of the district.
Further declaring that no organisation would be allowed to hold any activity that could threaten peaceful co-existence of the people, the meeting said such acts would be strictly prohibited within Jalukie without prior permission and consent from the landowner concerned. 
Following reported unruly conduct by inmates at some quarantine centres, the meeting concluded that the inmates hailing from subscribed villages under Old Jalukie Village should be dealt strictly by respective village councils as per law of the land, with three years banishment of such inmates along with their family members in the event of any breach of standard operating procedure (SOP) of the government or absconding from the quarantine centres.
The council comprising of 14 subordinate councils also decided to extend and assist the State government from the sub-divisional level to the district level in the fight against COVID-19 pandemic to effectively manage it and shun misapprehension from any quarter.
While deliberating on the proposed delimitation exercise, the meeting demanded that delimitation should not segregate land and its people in different constituencies, because this would undermine traditional practices and defeat the purpose of establishing satellite villages in Jalukie land and have a far-reaching effect for many generations. Thus, it reasoned that delimitation in the district should not jeopardise the aspiration of people and existing geographical and political harmony of people and land. The meeting resolved to seek genuine rights through representation to the competent authority. Earlier, WJVC president Namgum Hingleu welcomed the participants of the meeting, which was followed by mass prayer led by Ireigwang Mpom, deacon of Baptist Church, Jalukie ‘B’. 
Prior to the deliberations, convener of Mlei Ngyi Festival 2020 presented his report, which was accepted anonymously.
This was stated in a press release by WJVC president Namgum Hingleu and secretary Benjanmin.
