Dimapur, June 20: Livingstone Foundation Hr. Sec. School Wednesday took part in a civic activity of presenting hampers and snacks to traffic personnel on duty in both Dimapur Traffic Zone-1 and Zone-2. Management, staff and students of the school participated in the activity.
A LFHSS release said the activity was mainly undertaken to express gratitude towards the traffic personnel who sacrifice their peace and comfort even in the sweltering heat and humidity of the summers to maintain smooth flow of traffic and to provide a better service to the commuters of Dimapur even in the midst of stressful job conditions.
The students and staff of LFHSS were divided into two teams for both Zone-I (Dimapur City area) and Zone-II (East Dimapur & Chumukedima area) who distributed gift hampers and snacks to the traffic personnel manning around 15 traffic points in Zone-I and around 5 traffic points in Zone-II, where they had interactions with more than 100 traffic policemen on duty.
During the community service, the students also interacted with the Deputy Commissioner of Police (Traffic), Yanithung Ezung, NPS and the officer in-charge (OC) of Dimapur Traffic Police, Zone-II, Peter Shuya, NPS. ABSI Lipenthung and ABSI Bokato interacted with the team of students on behalf of the OC of Dimapur Traffic Police, Zone-I, L Mhathung Patton, NPS. The officials were also presented with specially made framed memorabilia as a token of gratitude and affection from the school.
According to the DCP (Traffic), despite the hard work and dedication of the traffic personnel on duty, they do not get much cooperation from the general public as many of them just drive their vehicles without being least concerned about the traffic rules and regulations. He expected a positive and constructive cooperation from the public for a streamlined traffic system in Dimapur. Peter Shuya, OC (T) Zone-II advised the students to be more aware about the traffic rules and to follow them diligently. He also gifted the team from LFHSS with specially designed key-chains bearing the Dimapur Traffic Police insignia.
