Kohima, March 20 (EMN): The Angami Students’ Union (ASU) is all set to conduct its 28th biennial general conference, 2019, at Phiphema village in Kohima district from March 21. The event is to be held with the theme ‘aspiring dynamics.’
“This conference fundamentally aspires to explore the dynamics of finding solutions to our deteriorating crisis by first getting to know ourselves and evolve accordingly,” a press note issued by the ASU stated. The union conducted a press conference at its office, on March 20 in Kohima.

The note stated: “To keep on discussing the problems created by our wrong ways without changing our wrong ways is irresponsible and suicidal. The human element produces the issues and the problems.”

The ASU’s President Visako Rino stated that the three-daylong conference will have seven different sessions including academic and literary sessions; games and sports; an entertainment segment, among others. He said that the union has asked for 250 delegates from each unit and are expecting 1000 delegates to attend the conference. Elections of new office bearers for the ASU will be held at 12:00 noon on March 24, he informed.

Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio will be attending the inaugural session, at 10 am on March 23. Key speakers during the conference include principal secretary of School Education Menukhol John; Assistant Professor Kezholesa Dominic Thaprü, of Baptist College in Kohima; Dr. Kedilezo Kikhi, sociology professor at Tezpur University; Dr CP Alexander, vice chancellor of ICFAI University; Rev. Dr. Neivotso Neikha, mission director of Northeast India CRC; and Rosemary Dzüvichü, Nagaland University.
