Dimapur, April 7: The Government of Nagaland has issued directives to all Deputy Commissioners of districts bordering Myanmar to deal with refugee’s crossing over the border with “human feelings”.

Directions have been given to the respective district Deputy Commissioners to deal with the refugees with “human feelings” in case any person crosses over the border seeking refuge, Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio was quoted as having told the Northeast Today on Wednesday.
The Chief Minister, however, said there is no reported movement of refugees into Nagaland from Myanmar since the military coup there in February this year.
“We discussed the Myanmar issue and so far we are not having much of a problem. Some people crossed for some treatment, to buy essential commodities and some came for wedding purposes, so they were allowed and they were sent back. There are no refugee movements,” the CM told NET.
