Former NPCC president and MLA I. Imkong Friday asked the youth to maintain integrity in progress and challenged them to reflect themselves in imminent truth that their ideals and standards would be the face of tomorrow.
Speaking at the valedictory function of Diphupar Naga Students’ Union (DNSU) 21st biennial general conference at Diphupar local ground, the MLA cautioned the youth whether their principles or ideologies would withstand the adversaries of life and the principles were conducive for change, progress and integrity.
Imkong said, “Integrity is maintaining dignity in an honest way and is the key in any aspects of life” adding one’s belief in their abilities would survive the will, followed by change and progress in society.
Expressing reformation of knowledge in youth, the chief guest said, “This is evident in the current context of young entrepreneurs rising above the challenges and competition for success. Long gone are the days where the Government sector was the sole entrance to establish oneself. New and exciting job markets are available and there is a choice for everyone.”
Stating that the power to work and improve as a community to be a part of this fast changing world lies within us, Imkong reminded the gathering of the age old adage “charity begins at home” and said likewise, progress and change also begins at home.
Further exhorting the gathering that the foundation has already been laid by their pioneers and predecessors, Imkong said, “To make progress is to build on what we have, to believe that today is better than yesterday and tomorrow will be better than both. You already have the foundation, you just have to improve on it.”
While calling upon the youth to come forward and encourage and inspire elders towards the perceived future, the chief guest said that he looked forward to a progression of changes for the better and further wished them the best of luck in their pursuit.
The chief guest also donated a sum of `50,000 as a gesture of goodwill towards the Union.
Earlier in the programme, Imkong also handed out certificates and mementos to the various tribal and constituent units.
He was accompanied by N.N. Walling (Retd. DG Prisons), Dr. Panger Longchar, Director of Salt Christian College, Dimapur and a host of supporters and well wishers.
