NAYO says it's unsafe for locals to have the intended attendees coming from different parts of the state amid COVID-19
Kohima: In a letter addressed to the Nagaland Director General of Police (DGP), the Northern Angami Youth Organization (NAYO) objected the proposed training of security personnel at the 4th NAP at Thizama and 10th NAP (IR) Battalion at Zhadima Village.
Through its President Roko Angami and General Secretary Ruokuoneitso Kire, the letter said that the NAYO has learned about a call for training of security personals at the 4th NAP Thizama, and 10th NAP (IR) Bn at Zhadima, where both the proposed centres lie under the jurisdiction of NAYO.
The NAYO said that a similar programme was also proposed to be conducted at Chümukedima, Alichen Mokokchung and Tuensang which were "spurned by the public of the respective regions because of the existing fiery pandemic".
"The recently proposed training centres, Zhadima and Thizama, are located in the heart of the village dwellings. Hence, at this difficult time where the pandemic is at its zenith, the NAYO feels that it is very unsafe for its populace to have the intended attendees coming from different parts of the state," the letter read.
The tribal youth body said that it "cannot allow anything come whatsoever, including this proposed training to jeopardize the safety of its citizens in the slightest as it is morally and legally bounded by its constitution, fervently request your benign authority to call off the proposal order till the situation is favorable".
