“A time has come to stand bold and say ‘Yes’ to a magnanimous future”, said minister of Higher & Technical Education and Tribal  Affairs, Temjen Imna Along, while addressing the 25th years of academic service programme at Government Polytechnic Kohima (GPK) on October 22.

A press release from media officer to minister stated that, speaking on the line of “Solution”, Along said “a time has come for the Nagas to pray, and refrain from mistrusting one another, the government of India, the state government, the revolutionary groups or the hohos, but this is a time to trust God and seek His guidance”. Along also asserted that solution will happen  gradually, and that a time has come for people to seek peace and do away with threat and intimidation and gun culture. 
Temjen asserted that a strong society is one which is humble,  patient and steady and ever ready to learn, and be consistent at all cost and persistent toward its goal. “For any seeds to grow, it takes time. Teaching and learning is an ever changing and acquiring  process, for which we have to remain  ever consistent and persistent”.
He also stated that one may reach the goal, yet if one was not consistent and persistent, it will not help in attaining knowledge and wisdom to be sustainable. Stating that a goal and a vision cannot be separated but has to be collective and that squeezing to attain the most comfortable position through various links and becoming stagnant in one’s position of comfort will ruin the whole future of the state.
Minister also urged the students not only to focus on obtaining certificates, but to pursue for excellence by envisioning a better future for all, and added “These 170 students of Government Polytechnic Kohima, being endowed with various talents, holds the future of the state”. 
Stating that the employability of government polytechnic are too less, Temjen also added that the only way to increase the rate of employment was hard work and consistency towards the goal. In this regard, he urged both the faculty and the students to pursue their goals with conviction.
Along also said that there shall come a time in the state of Nagaland, where there will be no more government polytechnic institutions, but there should come up engineering colleges as institutions for higher learning, fashion department should become regional institute of fashion technology with an objective to reach a stronger and more robust height. 
He also appealed for a green campus, and single used plastic free zone to create consciousness and become pioneers to be socially responsible citizens. Along also suggested that a common pool be created to sponsor poor students coming to study in government polytechnics.
