Kohima, January 7: Naga Club president, Kruorovi Peseyie today asserted that the most important and historic deed of Naga Club was the submission of the first Naga Political Memorandum to the British Statutory Commission led by John Simon, M.P on 10th January 1929 which has become the magna carta of Nagas
Addressing the members of the Naga Club at its foundation day observation today at MC Hall, Red Cross Building, Kohima, Peseyie claimed that some writers of the North East consider the Memorandum of 1929 as one of the rarest memorandums. He said Nagas were perhaps less civilised than others in those days, but because of their innocence and humbleness God helped them.
Emphasizing the present stand of the Naga Club, Peseyie said Naga Club shall stand for truth and honesty, and function with compassion and benevolence and always stand for what is right and good. Peseyie further warned that the true histories and records of Naga Club should never be supplanted with individual statement of own imagination without basing on reliable evidences.
The function was chaired by Naga Club general secretary, KN Mhonthung, Rev. Dr. K. Benry Lotha, Pastor, Kohima Lotha Baptist Church read the Bible passage and invoke God’s blessing. Others who spoke on the occasion included Club treasurer Vixepu Swu, Jonas Yanthan and Robert Solo.
