Eastern Konyak Union (EKU) Myanmar has appealed to the responsible authorities on the Indian side to allow the eastern borders area public to buy essential commodities from border shops on humanitarian grounds.

In a press release, EKU Myanmar president Khotai, general secretary K Honwang and advisor Wangmao Angh said that eastern Konyaks were suffering because of restriction along the border following the sealing of border due to COVID-19 pandemic. EKU said since February 2020 all the border roads—the only way for the border area people to buy needs— remained sealed.
The union said that since there was no development till date in their area they travel by foot to buy salt, rice and other basic needs and carry on their heads from western side border to villages.
EKU said Eastern borders area people were now facing even more difficulties after restriction was imposed since February 2020.
On Myanmar side, the union said the Myanmar government provided necessities to common people in other towns and villages, but border area people have been neglected though they were also in the same country.
EKU has, therefore, appealed to the minister, MLA, MP administer chairman and Naga NGOs leaders from Naga Self-Administered Zone Sagaing Division, Myanmar to extend help.
