Toshi Wungtung, a Nagaland MLA, died of Covid-19-related complications. Toshi Wungtung, Nagaland's MLA and government advisor for communication and public relations, died on Thursday in New Delhi, where he was seeking treatment for Covid-19-related medical conditions, according to authoritative reports.

He was 57 years old at the time. Wungtung started his career in state electoral politics in 2018, and is recognized for his uncompromising activism on environmental conservation, advancement of Naga culture and identity and customs, and the Naga political issue. On a Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) ticket, he was elected to the 13th Nagaland Legislative Assembly from the Shamator-Chessore constituency in Tuensang district.

Wungtung was named advisor for IPR, State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT), and Village Guards, a post he maintained until his death.Earlier in June, the MLA was said to have tested positive for Covid-19 and was getting treatment at a facility in Nagaland. He was then evacuated to Delhi and has been under medical care since then due to the development of many underlying health problems.According to official sources, plans are being made to fly the late MLA's mortal remains home to Nagaland on Thursday afternoon.
