Kohima, April 13: Governor RN Ravi will have a consultation meeting with Kohima-based tribal organisations on Wednesday (April 14) to discuss pressing issues like COVID-19 pandemic, and law and order situation.

Sources said Ravi’s proposed meeting with the tribal organisations has been prompted by the second wave of novel coronavirus that has hit the country. The meeting is expected to discuss steps and measures to be enforced to check spread of virus in the State.
The tribal hohos, NGOs and churches have been actively supporting the State in the fight against the COVID-19 in the last one year. These organizations can also help government in the ongoing vaccination drive across the State.
The meeting is also important as the Union Government has rolled out measures to combat the coronavirus.
Also, the Governor will discuss the law and order situation with the tribal hobos. It is understood that the meeting will deliberate on extortion by armed Naga groups, which has taken heavy toll on the people.

Ravi who is also Central Government’s interlocutor for the Naga peace process has been expressing concern at the extortion carried out by members of the armed Naga groups. At least 14 armed Naga outfits are active in the State. These outfits mainly operate in Dimapur and Kohima.
The Governor is also expected to brief the hohos about the status of the peace process. (Page News Service)
