Dimapur, May 18 (EMN): Kohima Village Youth Organisation (KVYO) has detected many loopholes in the implementation of lockdown rules and has suggested certain measures to ensure success of the total lockdown in the state capital Kohima.

In a letter to chairman of Kohima district task force (DTF), KVYO observed over-crowding at market places without following any social distancing norms thereby putting the lives of people in danger. KVYO also claimed that the DTF resolution to permit two vehicles for every colony to supply essential commodities to cater the needs for the concerned colony has failed miserably. It has also lashed out at KMC for failing to monitor the wholesale market.

A KVYO’s statement issued by its president, Ruokuoneituo Phewhuo, and the general secretary, Neingusalie Khruomo, stated that the window period of shopping from 6 am to 12 noon need to be cut down. To substantiate its statement, KVYO stated that the public take this period as free movement time and also create traffic jams at some junctions.

It also stated that public carriers transporting construction materials during lockdown also failed to comply with the decision taken at the DTF meeting.

In the light of the above stated circumstances, KVYO has suggested coming up with an appropriate plan for the district as directed by the Nagaland HPC to DTF.

KVYO also urged the DTF to come up with an android application that could help the traffic and police personnel in monitoring the movement of permitted vehicles, especially the department vehicles.

Meanwhile, KVYO felt that the remaining days of lockdown should be declared as full lockdown by insisting curfew to break the chain of the pandemic as another lockdown might not be feasible. The full lockdown, according to KVYO should include closure of pharmacies in the main town road stretch except pharmacies attached to hospitals, government offices except district administration and emergency services, closure of all essential commodities including butcher shops.

KVYO further insisted car permits issued by the concerned department should carry the sign and seal of the issuing authority.
