The Chakhesang Public Organisation’s (CPO’s) 37th General Session was held at Chesezu Village, Phek district under the theme “Unity through Justice” on Wednesday.

Mikha Kenye from Zapami Village was announced as the new CPO president and Vedüvo Rhakho the general secretary, for the tenure 2019- 21.

Speaking on the status of Article 371 (A), advocate Timikha Koza and president of the Tenyimi People’s Organisation called upon the gathering to protect and defend the provision constituted in the article. He said the Nagas had earned statehood through sweat, tears, and blood.

Stating that ownership and transfer of land and its resources under the special provision of Article 371 (A) were consciously constituted, he said people should also be aware of such provisions.

Nagaland is the most democratic, even the most communistic, in terms of legal system, Timikha pointed out, because it all boils down to forgiveness.

Expressing the view that Nagas lack in dialogue and discussion, Timikha asked the people gathered to develop the habit of holding dialogues and reasoning things together for the welfare of the people.

Outgoing CPO president, Kekhwengulo Lea, in his presidential address said that the organisation follows the decisions of the people. He also spoke about poor medical facilities in the district which, he said, needed to be pondered on.

The organization also decided to organize a common platform for the community once every three years under the theme “Unity in Christ”

Kühüsayi Nyekha, chairman of Tsüswüveh, hoped that the event will strengthen the Chakhesang community for a better tomorrow.

On the second day of the session, a Chakhesang Day will be observed where Dr. Chotisuh Sazo, MLA, will share greetings, with short speeches by Zachilhu Lohe, Zhovehu Lohe and Thenucho Tunyi.
