DIMAPUR — The Political Science department of Yingli College in Longleng organised an outreach awareness programme on “Value of right to vote in the democracy” at Oushok village ground on March 23.

In his welcome address, the chairman of Oushok village council, Chailong Phom, thanked the college authority for organising the programme in the village. He stated that theme of the programme was relevant and would have impact on the village people.

He also suggested the students to work hard and increase the level of knowledge to serve the Phom community, stated a DIPR report.

Speaking at the programme, the college vice principal, Dr. B Henshet Phom, thanked the village council members for allowing them to use the public ground for the programme. He informed that Yingli College secured NAAC B+ grade due to many such co-curricular activities organised in and around the nearby villages in the district.
