Nagaland government orders replacement of border security
Kohima, May 4 (EMN): The government of Nagaland has ordered redeployment of all police personnel who have been posted at the check gates ‘for quite some time’, after two Nagaland police personnel were recently caught peddling banned drugs by Assam police.
According to Chief Secretary Temjen Toy, the government has ordered strict actions against the two culprits.
The two personnel of 7th NAP were held at the inter-state check gate in Merapani area, Assam-Nagaland border, which was earlier reported to have been facing challenges over drug peddling activities.
Toy admitted that the challenge is being faced in all the border areas of the state.
‘Strategic Group’ soon
The chief secretary also informed that Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio conducted a cabinet meeting on Monday morning to work out ways and means, examine possibilities concerning potentials and growth in the state.
The cabinet decided to form a ‘Strategic Group’ soon, headed by the chief minister, to facilitate the government’s exit plans and strategies post-lockdown.
‘The world has changed and we have to get used to the new norms,’ he said, adding that the state government is planning for a long-term strategy.
The chief secretary added that the lockdown has taught the state government a lesson: that it must strive to be self-reliant, having realised its potential.
