Peren, July 11 (MExN): The Zeliangrong Students’ Union Nagaland (ZSUN), Kuki Students’ Organization (KSO) and the Zeme Youth Organization Nagaland (ZYON) on Saturday informed of its decision to put its agitation on halt.
The decision came following a meeting with the state level committee headed by Health and Family Welfare Secretary Kesonyu Yhome on July 9.
However, it pointed out that it would be “forced” to take up its third phase of agitation “if we find that the Government is not sincere in their commitment to the people and no development is seen in the coming few days.”
A joint press release from the organizations also reiterated its stance on the June 3 and June 23 incidents, and demanded “exemplary action” against the doctors responsible.
“Citing the reason that the State is short of manpower to handle this pandemic should not be the yardstick to let the irresponsible professionals to go scot-free after committing mistake of such magnitude which can lead to unimaginable loss of innocent lives,” it stated.
It further impressed upon administrative officers in the district to “diligently and responsibly carry out their duties and also give correct ground reports to the higher authorities as and when the current status of the District is sought of them.”
It claimed that the “inefficiency” of the various Heads of Department in the district has led to lack of coordination and information dissemination within the District Task Force thus leading to unmitigated disasters. “We shall not stand watch and play dumb and deaf while those responsible to protect and secure the public go about unperturbed by the impending dangers that this pandemic poses to everyone,” it added.
