Chief secretary Lalthara said that the government employees do not seriously attend to their jobs and regretted that it showed slackness in managing the affairs. He said many a times government employees draw salaries without even going to office. He asserted that there was a need to improve the system of governance and tighten the screw as people wanted to progress with the rest of the country and the world.
Addressing the 27th annual session of the Angami gazetted officers (AGOK) on Saturday at St. Joseph Higher Secondary School, Viswema, he said to be a government employee was a “great privilege,”. There is a vast opportunity for a government employee to contribute to fellow human beings, community and society while serving in the government set-up, he added. Lalthara felt there was a need for a social oriented reform, rather than political minded, with a sense of social responsibility in the Naga society.
He also said that the government lands were encroached especially in Kohima and Dimapur and stated that government property ultimately was the asset for the people. “Develop a sense of social responsibility to check it,” he added.
Taking about the Naga marriages, he said that marriages have become “too costly affairs” going beyond control and urged upon the educated people to seriously ponder and think how to curtail and control the lavish spending.
Further, Lalthara praised the Angamis for their talent in singing and also lauded the Viswema village for their hospitality.
The resource persons during the annual session were, Menukhol John, commissioner & secretary, H&FW, Keviyiekielie Linyü, executive director ABCC and Savi Ligiese, president Naga Council Dimapur.
Special numbers were presented by Khonoma Gazetted Officer’s Krotho, Chiechama Officer’s Krotho, Jakhama Officer’s Krohto and Kohima Village Officer’s Krotho.
A brief general secretary report was presented by Er. Krosii Rhetso, general secretary AGOK, while Dr. Neikeyielie Theiinuo, treasurer AGOK gave the treasurer report.
New office bearers of AGOK for the year 2011-2012 would be headed by Vipralhou Kesiezie as president, Kekhrielhoutuo Nakhro-vice president , Chozule Kikhi-general secretary , Er.
