Dimapur, March 8: On the occasion of International Women’s Day, the Dimapur Police organized a medical camp for the police personnel conducted by Dr. Nitin Agarwal and Dr. Khushboo Agarwal.
Prior to the medical camp, a short programme was organized commemorating the day in the presence of Commissioner of Police Dimapur, Rothihu Tetseo, members of Rotary Club Dimapur and Innerwheel Club Dimapur among others.
Addressing the gathering, the Commissioner of Police in his address said that policing is such a busy job that often the need for medical checkup is ignored till the situation gets too bad and suggested that every police personnel above the age of 45 must do a yearly medical checkup.
He also stressed on the habit of the people to prefer tasty but unhealthy food over healthy food habits which often becomes a liability and added that it is high time that the personnel should adopt healthy food habits and exercise often.
He cited that if they are not healthy and lack peace, it isn’t possible for them to give security or peace to others. He also lamented that still Nagaland has no women MLA, when currently the number of female MPs in the country is the highest comparing to other times.
It is said that women are equal in the Naga society but still there are lots of blockages that confine women, though lately many Naga women are seen in various capacities, President of Rotary Club Dimapur, Kitosih Zhimomi said.
She appealed to the womenfolk to support each other and celebrate the success of the other.
President of Innerwheel Club, Sanjukta Bhattacharjee mentioned that the day belongs to all and isn’t confined to a particular country or group.
