Dimapur, April 22: The Nagaland unit of National People’s Party (NPP) has lauded what it stated was the liberal-minded approach of Governor RN Ravi in assembling various political parties of State to deliberate the current COVID-19 pandemic situation in Nagaland.
In a press release issued on Thursday, the party encouraged the head of the State to be sensitive on issues pertaining to the State by initiating consultation with different stakeholders before enforcing any state-wide orders on lockdown.
It also lauded “some of the outstanding officials, frontline workers, NGOs and well-wishers who, despite all odds, stood their ground and efficiently handled the 1st phase of Covid-19 pandemic with limited information and thus saving the government from embarrassment”.
However, the government should be well prepared to handle the second wave better with experiences and essential information gathered from the past without creating any chaotic confusion, it stated.
The party urged the opposition leaders to play an active role in Nagaland in order to bring constructive development for the larger interest of the public.
Dr. Andrew Ahoto Sema, president NPP Nagaland, urged the Government to install proper safety measures such as diversions, highway safety guidelines, caution tapes, reflectors, barricades, recovery van, ambulances etc in order to prevent accidents and confusion amongst commuters. (Page News Service)
