The federation has put forth some suggestions to the state government – to issue directives to the RCs, DRCs and ARCs of Nagaland State guest houses and bhavans to accommodate Naga people left stranded on the streets due to the nationwide lockdown and that measures be taken for compulsory quarantine of the guests.
Also provisions be made to provide personal protection kit to all those attending to the guests and working in the various state bhavans. The incharges of state bhavans be instructed to store essential goods in order to reach out and help the Naga people who are in need. Special permission be granted to Naga leaders and volunteers in various cities to venture out during this period and help those Naga people in need of their services and that their conveyances requirements be taken care of by the state Government.
It also suggested that financial assistance be extended to Naga student bodies in various cities and towns in order to effectively carry out their duty of serving the people in distress.
The NSF also wanted directive to be issued to all state bhavans to extend maximum help in case of medical emergencies and burial in case of dead. (Page News Service)
