Dimapur, Nov. 1 (EMN): Thoktsur Village Guard celebrated its golden jubilee at Thoktsur village on October 31 with advisor, Information & Public Relation and Village Guards, S Keoshu Yimkhiung, as special guest.

A DIPR report stated that the special guest in his address said the Village Guard (VG) personnel have rendered their invaluable service in guarding, protecting, and maintaining law and order in their respective areas.

Yimkhiung said their valuable services and sacrifices have been nationally recognised as the VG personnel had been conferred numerous awards in recognition of their meritorious service and sacrifices over the years.

He urged VG personnel to shun their differences to achieve development and progress in the remote area of the state and set an example of unity and strength by living in harmony.

Superintendent of Police, Noklak, Dr. Pritpal Kaur Batra, said that Village Guards are the one who guard places where the police personnel can’t reach.

Beginning with 1957 and even during Merapani War, VGs have rendered their invaluable services and supreme sacrifices.

She also said that people must salute them for their acts of bravery and heroism and urged them to continue living to their good name as the finest VG volunteers.

Advisor L Khumo, the guest of honour, spoke on the need to live in unity. Commandant VG Noklak, K Heno, also spoke on the occasion.
