Kikon also called upon the Sumi community to play a significant role in uniting Naga society.

Stressing on the importance of inclusivity in the Naga nationalist movement, he advocated for unity among different communities and urged them to work together as one Naga family, transcending geographical and community boundaries.

Highlighting the pivotal role of students as the foundational pillars of the upcoming generation, he emphasised the importance of securing a bright future through education. Mali also stressed the necessity of acquiring quality education to unlock their full potential in life.
