Mokokchung | January 11
Nagaland Parliamentary Secretary for Animal Husbandry & Veterinary Service, S Chuba Longkumer on Wednesday said that Naga society has today become “individualistic” where everyone “think and do for themselves.” He was addressing the 41st general conference of the Asetkong Kaketshir Telungjem Mungdang (AKTM), the students’ union of Asetkong range of Mokokchung district, at Sungratsü village.
Longkumer, who was the chief guest at the triennial conference, added that because of people’s “individualistic mentality” there are fewer individuals who are dedicated to work for the betterment of the society as a whole.
He also lamented the “explosion of many groups and societies” and said that such mushrooming of groups for their personal leverage is causing turmoil in the society today.
In this regard, he opined that students’ bodies should be intellectual groups to bring change “in our present torn society.” He also urged the civil society organizations not to let “politics” interfere in the organizations so that mandates of people can be fulfilled.
Chief host of the conference, Parliamentary Secretary for Geology & Mining, Dr Imtiwapang Aier stressed that Naga society is going through a transitioning period where “disunity, -ism and clans issues have become a chronic disease in our society.” He called upon the students to inculcate the “mentality of oneness” among the Naga brethren and usher in unity among the Naga family.
He also expressed appreciation to the Clean Election Campaign initiated by Langpangkong Kaketshir Mungdang and encouraged the AKTM to emulate the good work initiated by their counterpart and initiate the same campaign in the range too.
He appealed to the students to work for the success of the five-year plantation project of Greening Asetkong launched under his initiative last year in association with AKTM.
Others who spoke at the function included AKTM president, Rongsennukshi Aier, A Nungsang Jamir, president, Asetkong Mungdang and Shilukaba Longchar, Assistant General Secretary, AKM.
The conference began on January 10 and will culminate on January 12. The three-day conference is attended by 400 delegates from the various AKTM units.
