No refugee movement from Myanmar, says Nagaland CM
Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio on Wednesday informed that they have reported no refugee movement from Myanmar into the state since the military coup began on February 1, 2021.
“We discussed the Myanmar issue and so far we are not having much of a problem. Some people crossed for some treatment, to buy essential commodities and some came for wedding purposes, so they were allowed and they were sent back. There are no refugee movements,” said the Chief Minister.
Rio further said that directions have been given to the respective district Deputy Commissioners to deal with the refugees with “human feelings” in case any person crosses over the border seeking refuge.
“We will see the situation and deal with it. We have informed our Deputy commissioners to deal with them with human feelings, but so far no incident has come,” added Rio.
