Senapati (Manipur) [India], May 15 (ANI): A Naga village in Manipur has set up quarantine cottages for the returnees, who are coming home after being stranded in various parts of the country due to the government-imposed lockdown.
The Tungjoy Village Council has built 80 cottages for the quarantine group.
The Poumai (tribe) Naga village in Paomata sub-division of Senapati district bordering Nagaland is about 110 km north of Manipur’s capital Imphal.
Manipur Chief Minister N. Biren Singh tweeted: “My salute, Tungjoy village authorities have set up 80 bamboo huts for quarantine of their villagers who are going to come from outside the state.
“Each hut is fitted with a bed, separate toilet, gas table, and electricity with a charging socket. Water supply is provided at various locations,” the tweet further read.
