Election And Beyond

Much have been spilled during the past few weeks. We began with the tussle between solution and election. Unsure and unsettled we entered into this race. One phase of it will soon settle as we hit the poll tomorrow. If one thing can be observed, it is the power of agreeing to give up on which is not tangible and agreeing to do things for common good. Election in the state is not an option, it is a an integral part of the system. We have talked so much of...

Déjà vu?

Recently the Chief Electoral Officer, Nagaland has officially warned against proxy voting. He said detection of such malpractice would render the votes in that polling station null and void, and action would be initiated against defaulters as well as polling officials. Strong words, but much needed, one might say. And considering the fire power and resources made available to the election machinery including CCTVs, ensuring electoral malpractices are prevented is a given. After all the government is duty bound to conduct a ‘free and fair’ election process so that people...

Let us all ponder once again about Naga Day

The Naga struggle does not lies with the Simon Commission of 1929 as this is completely outdated. The younger generation does not believe and consider this memorandum as British Colonial in India did not do anything even after a lapse of 16years-1946. Therefore, the long longing of Naga Sovereignty had not been considered even after the submission of Memorandum. This led to the formation of Naga Nationalist Council(NNC) in 1946 by the father of the Naga Nation Dr.A.Z.Phizo and he declared the Naga Independence on 14th August 1947 one day...

On the Demand for Tseminyu District

The Tseminyu Subdivision, one of the oldest of Nagaland, should have been upgraded as District many years back when the other districts were formed off the then subdivisions of the three districts of Kohima, Mokokchung, and Tuensang. In the 4th January 2018 issue of The Morung Express (Page 10, Public Discourse) Mr. Kenyuseng Tep, President, Rengma Hoho elucidated the Tseminyu District demand with numerous justifications. The Rengma contribution to the Naga political cause on various fronts has been immense, yet the Rengmas have been relegated to the back seat time...

Dear Nagas, is it change you want?

Together, we have the solution if you really want it. Read on..... The kind of problems that we have in our state cannot be solved in a conventional manner, simply because of its enormity where evil conduct has exceeded all conceivable limits. The word corruption is no longer strong enough to describe the situation we are in today. We are confused and ashamed with no hope in sight, in fact we are being stripped of our modesty. Yet if we don’t do anything now, the arrangement is being made by...

Live And Let Live

With scarce avenues for employment in the government sector and the absence of the private sector in our state of Nagaland, many of our youngsters are frustrated due lack of job opportunities and source of substance. This has driven many to take up activities under duress and are basically detrimental to our society. Now, considering the above circumstances, it has been seen that some people are involved in bootlegging in our dry state for their survival. If compared to other activities, this is a lesser sin though one cannot disagree...

A matter of sensitivity

Now that we are done with the song and dance, political and otherwise, hopefully, let's get down to business. And here the business certainly means good governance. Besides, law and order, the first thrust areas where we would like to experience good governance is in our health and education delivery systems. But these are also closely intertwined with good roads, good Power supply and good water supply. The word "good' is very simple and even those who do not know the English language know the meaning of the word, as...
