Khiamniungan Students’ Union Kohima celebrates 25th Anniversary
Dimapur, Oct. 16 (EMN): Advisor of Urban Development and Municipal Affairs, Dr. Neikiesalie Nicky Kire on Friday urged to get out of “backward” mindset as such mentality will hinder growth.
He said this during the 25th Anniversary of Khiamniungan Students’ Union Kohima (KSUK) held at the state academy Hall in Kohima, where he was the special guest and the Advisor of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources, Evaluation, Economics and Statistics, L Khumo, was the guest of honour.
While congratulating the pioneers of KSUK on the occasion, Kire encouraged the gathering to have 3Ds in life — determination, dedication and devotion — and never to give up, adding that “things may not always turn the way we want”.
He told the gathering that everyone is equal and there are lots of potential for growth. He also encouraged them to take up sports and athletics and shine.
The update from the union went on to inform that the first president of KSUK recalled how they felt the need for a union in 1996 though the members were few and expressed happiness over keeping the union going with strong determination.
The new office bearers of the union led by the president Bem Lushing were inducted in the second session, while MS Thangpong, Additional Deputy Commisioner, Commissioner’s Office, Kohima, also spoke.
