Nagaland Voluntary Consumers’ Organisation (NVCO) conducted a sensitisation and awareness campaign on consumer rights, street vendor, human rights, environment, food safety and food security at Mt. Tiyi Government College, Wokha on October 1. 

A press release from NVCO media cell stated that, resource persons consisted of LL.B final students of Kohima Law College (KLC), Taniko Thupita, K. Atolimi Zhimomi, Shenti Humtsoe, Alibo Yepthomi and Bamsiliu Rentta led by assistant professor Kezhokhoto Savi, advocate who is also the president of NVCO.  Savi while addressing the college students highlighted that every student must know their duties and remain alert especially while buying goods and availing services. 

He also appealed to the citizens of every district to be vigilant of the illegal practices of collecting cash in several forms which led to price-rise in the market. 

He also pointed out the Street Vendors Act 2014 to provide a vending zone with proper facilities such as shed, sanitation, toilet, safe-drinking water, security, etc. Savi also reminded the students and faculty to continually voice out against the Citizen Amendment Bill (CAB) as this bill if implemented will take away “our” future. The awareness programme was attended by principal, college students and teaching faculty and concluded with vote of thanks by Dr. Kezha Metha.

Launched on December 3,1990. Nagaland Post is the first and highest circulated newspaper of Nagaland state. Nagaland Post is also the first newspaper in Nagaland to be published in multi-colour.
