Chief secretary of Nagaland, Lalthara IAS said that the centre was firm in dealing with the Naga issue and did not want it to drag but resolve it at the earliest. He however lamented that in ground reality, it would not be possible as the Nagas were scattered and appealed the Eastern Nagas under the banner of ENPO to join hands with the Naga Hoho. Addressing the 2nd general session of Eastern Nagaland Students’ Federation (ENSF) at Mon town on Tuesday as the chief guest, Lalthara suggested that the NGOs should speak in one voice and resolve all differences among themselves to strive for unity among the underground factions. He asserted that extending solidarity messages at every general session or conference was not enough. Rather, he said that the people should work together both theoretically and practically and assured to offer his help in resolving over ground issues. Speaking on developmental activities under the four districts of Tuensang, Kiphire, Longleng and Mon, the chief secretary said that crores of rupees were being sanctioned under various departments such as development for under developed areas (DUDA) but that the money was not utilized properly. He pointed out that the Mon-Namtola road, State Highway-3 and the lifeline route of Mon district was in pathetic condition as no repair works have been carried out for the last five to six years. Exhorting the student community, Lalthara said that though Nagas were gifted in the field of sports, they lacked discipline and motivation. He stated that once a medal was won, one usually celebrate and make merry, forgetting the challenges ahead. Speaking in the context of Naga students, he disagreed with the quote “students are the leaders of tomorrow.” He said students especially in Nagaland were the leaders of today as they raised issues on every governmental activity and their voices were being heard by the government.
