Parliamentary secretary for Information and Public Relation, Economic and Statistics, R. Tohanba and leaders from Yimchungrü and other organizations called for unity, promotion and recognition of six tribes of Eastern Naga at 18th general session of Western Yimchungrü Hoho held at Old Showuba village, here on Saturday.
Parliamentary secretary advised the Yimchungrü community to possess a positive attitude and approach in all walks of life which would in turn develop unity and progress to the community.
Tohanba urged the Western Yimchungrü Hoho, which was a part of Yimchunger Tribal Council and living scattered in different parts of Nagaland to develop courage, integrity and feeling of oneness and ready to respond quickly in times of need adding “If we are defeated by negative attitude it will bring disappointment, frustration, envy and all sorts of pessimistic feelings which will bring down unity and progress.”
Underscoring the DAN Government’s declaration of 2010 as “Year of Entrepreneurs”, the parliamentary secretary appealed specially to youth to engage themselves in business sector. He also told the youth to utilize the gifted potentials and develop into skills and strive towards excellence in whatever job they were engaged in.
Stating that DAN government’s slogan “Peace for Development and Development for Peace” will be only achieved through positive attitude and hard work with dedication, he appealed the people of Yimchunger to have faith in the present government in order to march forward.
Expressing his concern for the development of Eastern Naga areas, Western Sumi Hoho president L.K Achumi opined that the government should not only focus on one district alone, but should extend all possible help in promoting the culture of those far flung areas. According to him, people in those areas have got enough potential, talents and rich culture but due to lack of communication and intervention from the government they were not able to compete with others.
He also suggested for organizing Hornbill Festival on rotation basis in various districts, which would also help those area to showcase their rich culture and traditions and boost their economy.
Former minister, K. Zungkum who is also the advisor of the Western Yimchungrü Hoho urged the Hoho to adopt a resolution to protect the cultural heritage and tradition which was gradually disappearing.
Others who also spoke at the occasion included ADC Niuland, Anenla T. Sato who represented the district administration; YTC president, ENPUD president and K. Janger NPSC member.
Cultural dance from Loyilo Cultural Club, Showuba and special numbers from Showuba Youth and Yimchungrü youth were the highlights of the day’s programme.
