CNTC’s concern on DCCI-student loggerhead

Central Nagaland Tribes Council (CNTC) has expressed happiness that Dimapur Chamber of Commerce & Industry (DCCI) realised the ambiguities over its recent resolutions and clarified them, and over which it claimed to have had shared concern earlier. 

In a press note, CNTC president N Matong Jamir and general secretary Er KL Moyo stressed that an organisation like DCCI, which was formed for the welfare and security of business community, should always remember that while carrying out business, it should never forget to serve in the interest of consumers as without them it would not be possible for the businessmen to flourish or survive. Public health and safety should be their topmost priority and could be compromised under any circumstances, they added.

CNTC urged DCCI to maintain a strict vigil on the activities of its members so that innocent consumers were not taken advantage as some businessmen might try to make some quick profit. Calling for upholding consumer rights in true letter and spirit as pledged by DCCI, CNTC warned that they would not hesitate to play their part as a responsible civil society, in case of any malpractice and misconduct from unscrupulous traders.

Expressing concern at the same time over some student bodies, CNTC suggested that they should not cross their boundaries while raising issues of common concern. As the student bodies were formed to work for the welfare and interests of student community, the duo said it was important for them to keep mind that they were formed with the consent and blessings of respective tribal hohos. 

Though working for common public welfare is appreciable, CNTC said “working overtime and overindulging on every social problem”, which had respective authorities and agencies under the government, should not be the case. CNTC said they would further discourage the student community from running around seeking money without working with their sweat and labour as that had resulted in near total absence of work culture among the youth today. 

Stating that the present grim unemployment scenario in Nagaland should serve as an eye-opener, the CNTC leaders advised that, instead of focusing on “freewill donations” or “goodwill contributions” in whatever style or form, the students should first work hard to build their own future. 

“The students are rather advised to be more focused in their studies and concentrate on their careers, instead of being over active on every social issue that consumes much of their valuable time and will cost their future too,” they cautioned. Pointing out that excessive student activism had not bode well in any part of the world, CNTC warned  that in case of overstepping their limits,– as an apex body of three tribes– it would have no other option but direct their constituent tribal hohos to take necessary action on those erring student representatives or recall them.
