Former governor and veteran Naga politician, Dr.S.C.Jamir lamented that Nagas no longer listen to those who speak the truth as they have become selfish and greedy and many Naga communities were disintegrated due to commercialization of politics and lack of righteous leaders.

Dr. S.C. Jamir said this while addressing the students’ day-cum-general meeting of Ao Kaketshir Telongjem Kohima (Ao Students Union Kohima) as the main speaker at Molu Ki, Paramedical Colony Kohima on October 2, according to DIPR report. 

He pointed out that Nagas talk about problems and hardships, but failed to realize that hatred, jealousy, disunity and bloodshed were the real causes that hinder the people from moving forward. He therefore, called upon the student community not to dwell on past glories but focus on the future to build the state with a righteous mind. 

Jamir encouraged the students that they should stand on the truth as the older generations have failed to do so. 

He also called for change in order to cope with the fast changing world. 

On the occasion, the recipients for the AKTK meritorious award 2019, Sashitsungla Jamir from Little Flower Higher Secondary School, Kohima and ImsurenlaLongkumer from Fernwood School Kohima, who secured the top 16 and 19 in the HSLC and Moanaro Jamir of Mezhur Higher Secondary School, Kohima, who also secured top 7 position in the HSSLC were awarded with cash prizes and certificates of merit.

Highlights of the function were song presentation by KABA Eirene Choir and the Longrar.
