Sending sight of relief to the tenants, Boulie Whuorie of Kohima village has taken decision to skip the house rent for his tenants in and around Kohima during the lockdown period.


Talking to The Morung Express, a musician Boulie Whuorie said that he had decided to do goodwill to the tenants considering their struggle to get daily requirements and also their business affected by COVID- 19 lockdown measures.


“At this extraordinary situation, I feel that I should also do something for my tenants. Hence, I decided not to charge house rent from them during this lockdown period,” said Whuorie.


On being asked about the feelings of the tenants with his goodwill gesture, he said “Due to ongoing lockdown, I am yet to meet them personally but I am sure that they will be glad.”


I would like other landlords to show sympathy and compassion to all their tenants as well during the time of lockdown, he added.


Boulie’s facebook friends lauded him for his kindness towards the tenants at this juncture.
“This is momentous. I salute you,” commented Oken Jeet.


“May God bless you and your family bountifully,” another friend commended.


It be recalled that Nagaland’s chief minister Neiphiu Rio via twitter recently expressed happiness that some house owners of Nagaland “have decided not to charge rent from their daily wage tenants in view of COVID- 19.”
“This exemplifies the spirit and solidarity required at this junction,” Rio twitted.
