OKM adopts ‘Mission vision 2045’
MOKOKCHUNG — The Ongpangkong Students’ Conference (OKM) has adopted an ambitious resolution called “OKM Mission Vision 2045,” a 20-year initiative to support brilliant students from economically weaker sections of society.
The resolution to this effect was adopted at the culmination of its 39th general conference held in Kupza village under Mokokchung district on January 19 evening. As per the resolution, the project implementation would begin in 2025.
To activate the initiative, every student from Ongpangkong, who has attained the age of 18 years should contribute a one-day-wage sum towards the “seed money” for the stated initiative.
To preserve Ao identity and language and in support of Ao Senden and Ao Riju, OKM would endeavour towards recognising the Ao language under the Eighth Schedule of the Constitution. In this direction, the conference resolved to continue pursuing the ongoing OKM mother language preservation programme.
The advisor of Minority Affairs and Sericulture, Imkongmar, was the special guest of the OKM general conference concluding session on January 19.

Urging the students to think critically and work towards the betterment of society, Imkongmar advocated unity.
