Dimapur, May 6: The Chakhroma Public Organization (CPO), has expressed surprise that it has not been invited to attend a meeting called by DC Dimapur on May 6 in relation to containment of the pandemic Covid-19.
The CPO said in this meeting not only the CPO is sidelined, but none of the Naga tribes organization in the district were called to attend. In the said circular issued by DC Dimapur, out of 15 organizations, only 3 are Naga organizations in Dimapur town, the CPO pointed out.
In a press release issued by its president, Vichütuolie Mere and general secretary, Mhiesisato Vüprü, the CPO asked the Naga people and the people of the state in general, ” Are we allowing the government to take decisions through these organisations to decide for our people who are intending to come home after the lockdown? Are these Non-Naga organisations that the government have invited to take decision for us competent? Are they capable and can we trust them? Can the government handle the problems without the involvement of the indigenous inhabitants of the district?
It said it happened to them today and the same thing might come to other ditricts.
The CPO appealed to the government, if their machineries are not aware, to advise its agents to have coordination with the apex bodies within the district for containment of any problem and immediately replace the officers who are not capable and creating more headache not only to the government but the citizens in particular.
