KVGOA appeals to help people in crisis


Dimapur, August 5: The Kohima Village Gazetted Officers Association (KVGOA) held an emergency meeting on August 4 to assess the present crisis in the state. A clear consensus was arrived at regarding the need for the individual as well as groups/organizations to render a helping hand to the affected families in this time of need.
The KVGOA in this regard solicited the advice of the Deputy Commissioner of Kohima, and also afforded its suggestions and any help it could offer to the administration in carrying out relief operations in the state capital.
In consultation with the Kohima Village Council, the KVGOA appealed to the various organizations and groups, and also shared its views and suggestions with an aim to ease/manage the crisis effectively.
The KVGOA appealed to the business community to ensure that the prices of essential commodities are checked so that no undue man-made burden is placed on the general public which is already reeling under a huge crisis created by natural causes.
It appealed to public transport/taxi services both (local and zonal) to give a helping hand to the society in this time of great need by not inflating the fares to exorbitant levels.
While it is understandable that many factors are prompting the hike in fares (fuel cost, extended routes), it requested on behalf of the larger public to the public transport operators, to stand in solidarity with the people in this time of great need.
Given the extraordinary crisis being faced today, the KVGOA appealed to all the banks doing business in Kohima to render a helping hand in alleviating the hardships being faced by the general public and the displaced families in particular, by contribution in cash or kind as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Community initiatives.
that communication is key in times of crisis like this, the KVGOA appealed to the Telecom Service Providers in Nagaland to do their bit in containing the situation by providing with good cellular signal and also helping the individual customer with complimentary free data/talk time to help with emergency situations as part of CSR policy.
It also appealed to the citizens of Kohima district to spare their property if available and lend a hand in providing urgent temporary shelter to the displaced families to sit out this period of adversity. (Page News Service)
