WSH demands BSL-3 lab in Dmu

DIMAPUR, JUN 27 (NPN) | Publish Date: 6/27/2020 1:26:04 PM IST

Even as Bio Safety Level-2 (BSL-2) laboratory was inaugurated in Dimapur on Saturday, the Western Sumi Hoho (WSH) maintained that justice would have been served had the government set up a BSL-3 laboratory for Dimapur district. 

WSH asked why was Dimapur deprived of BSL-3 lab if the government felt that Kohima deserved to be allotted a BSL-3 and Tuensang district allotted BSL-2 lab after demanding for a BSL-3 lab? WSH said Dimapur, has the maximum population and is also gateway and transit point of the state with several thousand people travelling by road, trains and planes every day. 

WSH, therefore, stated that “allotting a lower standard than its other counterparts was pure discriminatory and partial as usual.”

WSH expressed surprise at the silence maintained by various Dimapur-based civil society organizations which claimed to be working for the welfare of its citizens, when they did not demand BSL-3 lab for Dimapur. WSH said it has become the lone and the only voice for what Dimapur district truly deserved. Further, WSH pointed out that maximum number of the returnees and tests conducted were all from Dimapur district. It therefore asked all Dimapur-based CSOs to ponder “Why Dimapur was deprived of BSL-3 lab?”
