Kohima May 4: Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio has said that the Government has made a cautious exit plan from the lockdown and the various arms of the Government machinery would begin to resume responsibilities and assignments. In his message to the people of the state, Rio however cautioned that end of the lockdown did not mean the virus was no more and stressed that lockdown was only one of the measures aimed at slowing the rate of infection. He appealed to all sections of people to continue to diligently follow the official advisories, maintain social distancing and practice highest standards of hand hygiene.
He said the battle was not over and there was a long way to go. “Yet, we must continue to move ahead and march forward. We must join hands to rebuild our economy,” he added. As the Government of India extended the lockdown by another two weeks and “we” cautiously exit the lockdown, “we will open up to a different and a changed world. Many aspects of our lives will never be the same again. The dynamics of global village have altered,” the message read.(UNI)
