Chairman of Nagaland Handloom and Handicraft Development Corporation (NHHDC) Shetoyi on Saturday called upon the people to stand united for the betterment of Naga society. He said progression of the society should not be hampered by tribalism or selfishness of the Nagas. Formally inaugurating Government Primary School and Panchayat Hall of Officers’ Hill colony, Shetoyi pointed out that tribalism was an obstruction from all round development for the Naga society. He urged that Nagas should collectively voice for what is wrong, and not point fingers at each others’ tribes. Shetoyi further called upon government agencies, NGOs and civil societies to work with patience and cooperation for reconciliation of Nagas. Dwelling on the issue of superannuation, Shetoyi said people should come forward to support it for the benefit of the youth and the younger generation. He said that in the new computer age, the society needed educated youth to develop the society. The chief guest further stated that with the upgradation of LP School to Government Primary School, the residents of the colony should collectively work to make the school better in infrastructure and academics.
