Azo discourages gift-culture to chief guest
Dimapur, Dec. 22: MLA Kuzholuzo (Azo) Nienu today suggested the need to minimise the chief guest culture in social events at the village level and encouraged inviting academicians/ scholars as chief guest rather than the politicians to benefit the public with knowledge and wisdom.
Addressing the 48th inaugural session of Kutsapo Students’ Union (KSU) in Kutsapo village under Phek district, Azo said inviting chief guests must be for the purpose of gathering knowledge and not for monetary benefit.
Azo also suggested doing away with giving expensive gifts to chief guest as he said the chief guest usually come to assist and help the concerned and not to take something away.
Azo personally felt that demonetisation is a process of good governance.
Stating that common man will suffer initially to some extent, he, however, said that in the long run it may have a very positive impact towards country’s economy.
Azo also stated that if withdrawal limit continues, it will lead to corruption free society, adding that it will also lead to clean election campaign “as without cash, no candidate will be able to purchase vote and thereby only capable candidates will be elected.”
He also added that if the withdrawal limit continues, the dynamics of election process will certainly change for the better. With the withdrawal limit in place, Azo said the people are getting to realise the value of money and utilising the same economically.
Kutsapo Village Council chairman Zashevezo shared greetings, while KSU president Dr. Nutazo Lohe delivered presidential address.
The session will culminate on December 23 with Kupota Khusoh, former chairman of Phek Town Council as the guest speaker.
