Zadima Village Council (ZVC) has restricted any work force to enter into its village jurisdiction without producing medical fitness report and written assurance given by the concerned district authority guaranteeing the safety of the village people and take all responsibility in the event of any eventuality arising out of this very issue relating to COVID-19.

In a press release chairman Zadima Village Council, Kesovilhou Chüpuo and Zadima VDB secretary Roko Angami stated that the workers should also pre-inform the village authority prior to their entry into the village, failing which the village authority will take its own drastic course of action.

ZVC expressed shock at the lackadaisical action of the government by issuing Inner Line Permit (ILP) and movement permit to some workers from Techno Electric & Engineering Co. Ltd working at Zhadima village without strictly following 14 days institutional quarantine and 14 days home quarantine and other SOPs, whereby “trying to eye wash the public by their lacklustre protocols and action and permitting sonic workers to enter Nagaland from the red zones.”

ZVC stated that the 400/220 Kv GIS substation by Techno Electric & Engineering Co. Ltd and 220/132 Kv substation operated by Kalpataru Power Transniissin Ltd & Shyam Power India Ltd are the two companies setting up huge power project under Zhadima village jurisdiction.

While understanding the workload and time bound they had been shouldering, the ZVC stated that it was not a time to flunk all norms and protocols at this very crucial point of time.

According to ZVC, the companies were trying to intrude into its village with the sole intention of bringing in its work force from the red zone areas wherein the social security and safety has been threatened.

With the onset of this pandemic, ZVC said many “unsolicited outcomes and apprehensions have been witnessed and observed” which was totally uncalled for, however it said Zadima Village COVID Task Force had been working day and night to safeguard its village. While cautioning that if the lives of the village people are threatened, the ZVC stated that the government “should take all risks and responsibility” if the help of such workers are exigently required or follow all basic quarantine protocols and SOPs.
