Nagaland CM Rio goes into  self quarantine  after returning from Delhi

Kohima, Jul 16 (UNI) After returning from Delhi, Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio

has gone into self-quarantine as a precautionary measure.

“As a precautionary measure, I’m on self-quarantine on my return to Nagaland from

Delhi. Taking precautions to ensure the safety of others & myself. Will continue

discharging duties,” Mr Rio tweeted on Thursday.

However, he said he will continue to discharge his duties during the quarantine period.

On Wednesday, Mr Rio met defence minister Rajnath Singh at South Block and

reportedly discussed the prevailing law and order situation in the state.

Tension is brewing up in the state after six cadres of insurgent group NSCN (IM) which

is in peace talks with the centre were killed by security forces in Arunachal Pradesh.

Speculations are also rife that Mr Rio met Mr Singh following Governor RN Ravi’s

recent assessment of the law and order in the state.
