Sukhalu calls for cooperation, unity

Advisor of School Education and SCERT, KT Sukhalu has called for unity and cooperation saying that for any society to progress the members should be willing to build more unity among themselves.
However, Sukhalu said that true progress has evaded the Naga society in general and the Sümi community in particular, because the community itself was broken within. The advisor said this while inaugurating the village gate at Asukhomi village in Zunheboto district on December 7.
Sukhalu said that Asukhomi village has produced many officers and leaders both in the past and present and expressed the hope that this trend will continue.
He also recounted Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio’s visit to Satakha in March last year, where he purportedly said that there has been inconsistency of leadership among the Sümi community because the people have been “cutting down trees without giving them a chance to fruit.”
According to him, the purpose of rehashing the CM’s words was to remind the people that they were responsible for creating an ecosystem for leadership development. Taking the example of Zunheboto district, where the political leadership has been inconsistent for the last three decades, he called on the community to not only look for personal benefits alone but retrospect and find a way to choose leaders who will take the community forward.
On the occasion, the advisor stated that a proposal has been put up at the SLEC to change the nomenclature of Government High School in Zunheboto to Xuvishe Memorial Government Higher Secondary School, in honour of Xuvishe, a native of Asukhomi village.
He also encouraged the Asukhomi people to make plans to develop the government fishery in the village and other scenic areas in and around their jurisdiction to promote tourism.
On the demand for an NPSC exam centre in the district, Sukhalu informed that a centre can only be set up if there were at least 150 candidates appearing the exams consistently for a few years.
However, in 2018 only 97 candidates had applied from the district, 46 in 2019 and 176 in 2021. He therefore, said that the establishment of a centre would happen if the numbers stay above the minimum requirement.
Earlier, the programme began with an invocation by Nisheli Aye, Assoc. Pastor Women, Asukho Baptist Church, Vikato Khukju (Akukatou) Asukho New delivered the welcome address, Ghukato Khuju (Akukatou) Asukho Old delivered the vote of thanks while Yekali Shohe, Assoc Pastor Youth, ABC offered the benediction.
