Police officer advocates empowering women
Dimapur, April 24 (EMN): The deputy commissioner of police, zone-II, Aotula Imchen, while highlighting the increasing number of domestic violence against women, has underscored the relevance of women empowerment stating that it would be rendered ‘useless’ unless women empowered themselves.
Imchen was speaking as a special guest at the thanksgiving-cum-felicitation programme of the Eastern Nagaland Women Organisation Dimapur (ENWOD) at Dimapur town hall on Saturday.
While addressing the gathering, Imchen shared that organisations such as ENWOD should play an important role to educate and fight for justice urging them to maintain the bridge of unity.
The officer pondered on how crimes of domestic violence were committed in Naga society as ‘Naga people respect one another’. Further, Imchen said that discipline was the most important virtue that a leader must possess and urged the gathering to live a life of discipline.
‘A leader of an organisation should have a vision and motto to move forward and lead the society,’ she said and encouraged the gathering to be a guide for the society.
Imchen added that they were gathered not as individuals but as one big family ‘as strength lies in unity and without cooperation and commitment no organisation or society could move forward’.
It may be mentioned here that the new team of ENWOD would be led by N Langmei Phom as president, Hiyingla Yimchunger as vice president, Hongsangsongla Chang as general secretary, Khushen Khiamniungan as joint secretary, Lisela Sangtam as finance secretary, Manlik Konyak as assistant finance secretary, Athila Phom as action committee chairman, and Liyau Panchei Konyak as treasurer.
