Dimapur, April 1: Kohima Village Council has expressed concern over the ultimatum served by the All Nagaland Taxi Association (ANTA) through their president, Visabeituo Solo.
KVC Chairman, Dr Neiphi Kire and secretary, Zeneizo Rutsa reminded the ANTA that this lockdown covers entire country.
Stating that COVID-19 is a global pandemic, the KVC said this pandemic has affected not only taxi drivers but all daily wage earners as well as private business establishments. “Therefore it would be most hasty and unwise for the Association to play out its ultimatum in the streets, endangering the safety and lives of everyone, including the lives of all the drivers and their dear and loved ones,” the KVC stated.
The KVC informed that the Government of Nagaland and the NGOs have already started providing relief in terms of cash and kind to the poor and needy, including daily wage earners.
“This is not the time to serve Ultimatum but to approach the government and public with their problems for assistance if it has not yet reached them,” the KVC said stating it has resolved to observe the lock down in letter and spirit vide its resolution dated 24th March 2020.
The KVC appealed to all the taxi drivers and taxi owners of the Village to comply with the resolution. (Page News Service)
