Dimapur, December 11: Can Youth on Tuesday launched the third edition of the ‘Samvidhan Live! The Jagrik Project’ here at Tourist Lodge Conference Hall, Dimapur in the presence of the students from the five participating schools from Dimapur besides others.

Speaking on the event, Limasenla made the children aware of the various aspects of the constitution and the rights of the citizens in the country.
She said that people of Nagaland are ignorant of the rights that they have and it is the responsibility of the aware citizens like the students to make them aware of their fundamental rights and it has to start from their own houses.
Talking on sundry topics ranging from RTI to human trafficking to government schemes for the disabled, widows and people living with HIV, she said that the students should be wary of their surroundings and if they see forlorn children on the street, they should try to interact and bring them to those who can help them out as many a times these children are the victims of the trafficking. She also added that they should also be careful of the people they trust as more often than not the people they know can turn out to be traffickers or sexual predators and these evil people don’t roam around wearing black cloaks.
Previously, Fr. Jerry, Director of Bosco Institute, Jorhat had said in his brief address that citizenship is a daily reality that we need to live and it is not only about voting once in five years but to work continuously for the entity called the country.
