Dimapur, March 30: Dimapur Naga Students’ Union (DNSU) expressed its utmost displeasure towards the outburst and rampant public gatherings seen today at Dimapur for buying essential commodities and others without maintaining social distance as per the directive of the Government.
In a press release by Media Cell DNSU, the Union expressed surprise to witness free flow of public without maintaining proper social distance of one metre and questioned who is responsible whether the public or the government?
DNSU also questioned the Principal Secretary and Home Commissioner, Abhijit Sinha as to whether he has consulted the stakeholders or just giving orders and making it hard even for the government officials to practically implement since Dimapur is a big area with one of the highest population in Nagaland.
DNSU further lamented that through the initiative of Village/Colony councils and Youth organisations the volunteers sacrificed to be on the forefront at its initial stage of lockdown and strictly monitored the movement along with Administration, Police and medial department but right after the government banned organizations to implement lockdown one could see the result by today itself.
The Union appreciated the declaration by the Government to make the entire COVID-19 testing and treatment free and various initiatives taken but urged the government to have more practical remedies in dealing with this pandemic before it spreads far and wide.
Further, DNSU urged the government to continue spearheading not just in written but more in practicality and to have another round of meeting with stakeholders for a better outcome.
It also appealed to the DMC to sanitise the market areas at least once a day and requested the general public to stay home and take this COVID-19 pandemic seriously.
