The 4th day and the valedictory session of Sumi Kiphimi Kuqhakulu (SKK) conference on January 23 at Yehemi village was graced by Home minister of Nagaland, Y. Patton. 

A press release from SKK stated that, Patton praised the SKK for playing a vital role in upliftment of students’ community ever since its inception in 1940 under the leadership of Zuheshe Sema, adding that SKK has been an important stakeholder in the development of Sumi community in particular and the Nagas in general. He said that contributions made by pioneers of SKK and the organisation itself will be fondly remembered even in the days to come.

Patton stated that Nagas have been confronted with varied challenges and in the course of changing times, he said that the SKK not only focused in the prism of students’ welfare alone but has also voiced out in socio-political issues accordingly. 

While appreciating Sumi Kiphimi Kuqhakulu as the premier students’ body of the Sumi students’ community, Patton was hopeful that it will also serve as a good platform in moulding young minds and leaders to lead the society. 

Patton opined that Naga people have huge expectations from Sumi community, which was second to none, and has been equal partners with other fellow Naga tribes in shaping the future of the people.

He encouraged all the younger generations to work hard for academic excellence as there was no substitute for hard work in the present competitive world. 

Pointing out that economy of the state was a salaried based economy, Patton challenged educated youngsters in venturing out for entrepreneurship. 

Patton also touched on Naga political issue, wherein legislators, under the banner of Joint Legislators Forum (JLF) on Naga political issue, had joined hands, irrespective of political affiliations, to facilitate the peace process for an early settlement. 

Stating that Naga people want permanent peace, Patton was of the view that this was an opportune time for all sections of societies to unite so that peace settlement could be brought about without further delay. 

Patton also congratulated the new office bearers and thanked the previous for selfless service rendered towards students’ community and society.  

Patton also assured the students’ community that the present PDA government under the leadership of chief minister Neiphiu Rio is fully committed to look into the welfare and genuine concerns of the students.
