Kohima, May 26 (EMN):
Pfutsero town public leaders have decided to expel any of its member for a period of one month if he or she (returnee) fails to undergo a mandatory 14-day quarantine in their own respective colony and ward.

There was a standing resolution that any returnee, who do not fulfil 14-day quarantine in their own respective colony/wards quarantine compulsorily, would be expelled for a month from the town. The resolution to this effect was taken during a consultative meeting held on May 26. The meeting was attended by the colony chairmen, representatives from party organisations, Pfutsero town welfare committee, Pfutsero town mother’s association, Pfutsero town youth forum, GBs’ union, Pfutsero town voluntary consumers’ organisation and senior citizens.

Mesulo Khalo, convenor of ward chairman union Pfutsero town, told Eastern Mirror that they have decided to set up quarantine centres in every colony adding that all the returnees should be quarantined compulsorily for 14 days. He added that the organisation had decided to make an appeal to all concerned “be it schools or churches,” to accommodate those returnees. He also informed that the youth forum would making effort to find other place for quarantine of those returnees.

The resolution also stated that no family would be allowed to pick up the returnee from the quarantine centres but the ward chairman of Pfutsero town and Pfutesro town welfare committee have been assigned to pick up the Pfutsero town citizens to its respective colony.

Observing that there was no practice of social distancing, he said the organisation has issued directives for strict adherence. He has directed Kikruma, Khezhakeno to shop on Monday, while for Phusachodu and Chozuba on Tuesday, Centre Chakhesang range on Wednesday, Chizami range on Thursday and Razeba range on Friday. He also stated that no vehicle would be allowed to park within the main town for more than two hours, and if any vehicles violated the directives, the Pfutsero town youth forum would puncture its tyre. He added that no vehicles would be allowed to ply after 7 pm unless for emergency and medical reasons and warned that necessary action would be initiated for violation of the order.

Khalo also stated that no vehicles would be allowed to move freely without proper reasons. He also shared that they do not support the sale and export of wild vegetables to other districts for now because during this lockdown, people have started doing business and travel around.

“After Covid-19 we will change the resolution but for now people come asking permit to travel for selling vegetables or exporting, so we have decided to restrict it”, he commented.
