MCD felicitates meritorious students
Dimapur, September 2: Muslim Council Dimapur on Sunday felicitated students from the Muslim community living in Dimapur who during the HSLC and HSSLC examination 2018 scored more than 70% marks. The programme was held at Christian Higher Secondary School Hall.
Speaking on the occasion as special guest, KT Sukhalu, Advisor, School Education, asked the attendants and particularly students that they should be wary of the fake information that are being circulated each day through social media and use their own intellect to differentiate truth from false.
Touching diverse topics during his brief remark, he said that it is a trend among students now to study without aim but they should know what they want to achieve in life.
Commenting on the dire strait of the state, he said that he wants to see Nagaland and Dimapur progress on the scale of global cities and if everybody works together, it can be done.
Further, he said, everyone is waiting for a solution to the Indo-Naga political issue and if that is achieved, more works towards the progress of the state can be done in a peaceful manner.
MLA from Assam, Kamalakhya Dey Purkayastha who was a special invitee for the program praised the liberal and progressive thinking of the Nagas and said that a progressive Naga society will culminate to a progressive India.
Akashe Zhimimi, President of Dimapur District Chamber of Commerce, who also spoke on the occasion asked MCD to be careful about anti-social elements that can get into the state and ruin the reputation of the Muslim community, while at the same time appreciated the functioning of it.
Moa Sangtam, Administrator, DMC who received an award on behalf of DMC for the Better Dimapur initiative, said that the award belongs to all who have been associated with the initiative from last more than one year including MCD.
He also asked the public to do their duties towards the society and not depend on government for everything.
Previously, Naga Council Dimapur Vice President K. Ghokheto Chophy in his speech had asked MCD to work together with the Naga civil societies to identify illegal Bangladeshi immigrants like it has been doing and know that Nagas are not against genuine Indian sMuslims but are against IBIs.
The felicitation programme that had started in the year 2000 when only six students were felicitated for scoring more than 60% marks, this year felicitated about 50 students after increasing the benchmark to 70%. (Page News Service)
