Dimapur, February 3: The 57th general session of the Confederation of Chang Students’ Union (CCSU) under the theme ‘Propelling educational values’ has began at Tuensang and will culminate on February 5.
Special guest Mmhonlumo Kikon, Advisor, IT & C, Science & Technology, NRE acknowledged the efforts of the CCSU and shared his understanding and interest in Tuensang town started few years back when he was here to do a study on the presence of migrants from Myanmar in Tuensang town.
Speaking on the idea of Sochum he remarked, “What impressed me most and what actually the Changs and the district has contributed but not yet acknowledged is your adaptation of the communitization and your participation in insuring that the Act is actually implemented in its right way.”
He spoke about the history of the Nagas as irremovable from its identity and culture and stated, “I always say that any people who have no knowledge or respect or understanding of their district will not understand their present. Not only that, will not be able to lead its own people to the future.”
He reminded the congregation about the contribution of the Changs in the Naga history talking about the then commander-in-chief Thungti Chang, who once led the Nagas under the unified banner of NNC.
While mentioning that Nagaland is the only state in India to be created out of a political agreement he stated, “We are enjoying all the facilities today because of the sacrifices made by our elders. So, our present generation is different from theirs but because of their sacrifices we are where we are. Today, our issues and problems are different but the conflict remains.”
“We want good governance; we want policies which will enable good governance. We want all the services that are there for the welfare of the people to be delivered to the intended beneficiary,” he stated.
In the morning session of the second day, there will be volleyball competition among the 53 federating units and in the evening session there will be ‘Achievers’ Night’ where awards will be conferred for different fields of achievement by Changs.
