NSF officials told to work closely with government
KOHIMA — Former member of Nagaland Legislative Assembly (MLA) and incumbent president of Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC), Supongmeren Jamir, told NSF officials not to go against the government but to closely work together for the betterment of the Nagas.
Jamir was speaking at the NSF advent Christmas celebration held at NSF Solidarity Park in Kohima on Wednesday.
“The welfare of students is important but while carrying out agitation and movement, it should not be against the government. It should start with clear directives and with positive approach. As a federation, we don’t have the power to implement,” he said while adding they have to cooperate and closely work with the government.
He added that the political system and administration of the state is diluted and do not have a clear directions. He, therefore, urged the NSF officials to come up with new visions and see that there is achievement for the future generations.
Jamir, who was also the general secretary of NSF, said the federation is the guardian of the youngsters, the future leaders. He told them to stand for unity and work to the advantage of the society.
Speaking about the significance of quality leadership, he called upon the student leaders to serve people and the society and be ready to sacrifice their all efforts. As leader, he stated that one needs to have a quality to go with actions and not with the positions and added that failing to do one’s responsibilities means failing the generations.
He further told them to wisely utilise their time. He said that as leader, one should not follow the crowd but let the crowd follow them.
On the NSF shifting their office to the NSF Solidarity Park, Jamir said the federation had to be grateful to their “parents,” the Naga Club, whose building housed NSF office for 40 years.
NSF president, Medovi Rhi, delivered the welcome address, while its secretary of publicity and information, Pithungo Shitio, said the invocation prayer. The general secretary, Chumben Khuvung, chaired the programme and a song was presented by Vikuyole Tase.
Meanwhile, NSF informed that its office would remain closed from December 21 to January 10, 2024.
