Middle PWD colony Kohima silver jubilee


Middle PWD colony Kohima celebrated its silver jubilee at TC Garage, here, on Saturday.
In his speech as special guest, CEO, Kohima Smart City Development Limited (KSCDL), Kezhazelhou Theünuo lauded the pioneers for guiding the colony with love and trust.
He stated that it would not have been possible to reach this far without their guidance and visionary outlook.
Kezhazelhou said the colony has gradually grown into a small Nagaland today, with members from all the tribes of Nagaland and several from the mainland.
A former executive of the colony himself, Kezhazelhou encouraged the youth should to replicate leaders of the past and work for the welfare of upcoming generations with vision and dedication.
On the issue of the educated unemployed, he pointed out that the youth should practice dignity of labour since it was not the job that mattered but how it was done.
He said there were around 6,000 trade licences registered in Kohima out of which 60% were owned by non-locals and similarly, local taxis were mostly run by non-locals.
If these could be occupied by the local youth, then more than 20,000 jobs would be created.
Further, Kezhazelhou urged upon the youth to strive to build their own lives by engaging in entrepreneurial activities.
Earlier, he inaugurated a newly constructed waiting shed and unveiled the monolith.
The ceremony was compered by Sarah Konyak while Rev. Phomlee Van offered dedicatory prayer and benediction.
Jubilee planning committee convenor Er James Khala delivered the welcome address and short speeches were delivered by PWD panchayat, Ward-11 member and Middle PWD council chairman, Tosozhol Natso.
Special numbers were also presented by jubilee choir and vilekhonuo Sanchu.
Later, finance committee co-convenor, Kewepe Kapfo proposed the vote of thanks.
