For the first time in Nagaland, the Sema Tila Council (STC), Dimapur has unanimously resolved to implement 33% reservation for women in the Council. According to a joint statement issued by STC chairman Khuwoto Chishi and secretary Toikhu Assumi, the Council took the decision after intense deliberation on May 7 and accordingly elected Kanili Kinimi and Kaholi H Chishi as STC members for the tenure 2011-2016. Sema Tila Council, since its establishment in 1990 had seen opposition from colony members on election or even consideration of women becoming members in the council. The STC, however, said the women quota was made possible due to support from senior citizens to include women into the decision making body. Meanwhile, the newly elected members of Sema Tila Council include Kuhwoto Chishi (Chairman), Toikhu Assumi (Secretary), Hotoshe Chopy (Treasurer) and Kanili Kinilimi, Kaholi H Chishi, Hokivi Chishi, Kawoto Zhimo, Avito Chishi, Kasheto Chopy, Shikiho Chopy as members. Vikato Zhimo, GB Sema Tila is the ex-officio member. The Sema Tila Council has appealed all colony members to extend cooperation and support for effective functioning of the council.
