Dimapur, June 4 (EMN):  To oversee and take stock of the lockdown measures put in place in Kohima district, advisors of Urban Development and Municipal Affairs, Dr. Neikiesalie Nicky Kire, and advisor of Technical Education and Election, Medo Yhokha, along with EAC Kevinguto Kulnu went around Kohima town area on June 4.

During inspection, the advisors observed that the district administration, police and medical team were doing commendable job and appreciated them for the job done well, a DIPR report stated. They stated that majority of the town dwellers, notwithstanding the hardships faced, are positively responding to the collective call of total lockdown, which according to them was a welcome sign of a progress society.

They also observed a number of callous people and vehicles loitering by taking undue advantage of the window relaxation to facilitate public conveniences.

The advisors opined that dedicated and responsible volunteers have to be assigned to manage and monitor the movement of public especially on window/partially relaxed days in areas under the purview of the wards and colonies. They also fell that it would be prudent for the wards/ colonies without open marketing spaces but introduce mobile vegetable markets (on Tata mobile pickups) so as to avoid crowding and rushes.

The team also visited Jubilee Memorial Centre, Lerie, offered by Kohima Ao Baptist Church for quarantining of healthcare workers and had an interaction with the frontline workers (nurses from NHAK) stationed at the centre.
