Development Authority of Nagaland (DAN) organized a one-day village leadership training at New Jalukie Community Hall, Jalukie on July 20. The resource persons for the training were S. Chuba Longkumer BDO Tening and P. David DAN Coordinator Dimapur. The resource persons dwelt on the themes “To enhance the Roles and responsibility of the Village Leaders and awareness of VDB schemes” and “Role of Leadership” respectively.
BDO for Tening, Chuba while elucidating on the roles and responsibilities of village council members and VDB members with special reference to their duties and powers in recognized villages, referred to the Village and Area Council Act 1978 and VDB model roles 1980.
He pointed out that the two Acts were pivotal and anchor for village leaders in executing their duties judiciously. Chuba related the two Acts with that of the Holy Bible of Christian believers, and said all the leaders of the village were imperative to know the Acts in detail in order to lead and administer the villagers in their respective villages.
The resource person specifically highlighted that two Acts bore the powers assigned to the village leaders only in the state of Nagaland and nowhere in the country. In this regard, Chuba said that blaming the government for arbitrary or lack of development would be ignorance and negation of the two acts by the rural leaders as development in the villages should be done according to the will of the villagers and their leaders and VDB management committee empowered by the two Acts.
He pointed out that the policy of the government and working system depended on 90 percent upon the village leaders which was why there was justification, transparency and accountability in any matter.
Chuba further highlighted that the village council and VDB members were part and parcel for all round development in the villages but there were some elements which hampered the whole scenario with reasons like partism, clanism, tribalism, denomination, khel, unfaithfulness, personal enmity, and above all influence of alcohol.
He said that in order to lead the people and administer in an amicable atmosphere, a leader should avoid all the above mentioned elements which could often lead to dispute, misunderstanding and controversy in the villages.
