Tyrannus Boys Hostel Jakhama (TBHJ) conducted its annual seminar on “Know Your Rights & Entitlement” on August 9 at the hostel premises, below St. Joseph’s College Jakhama with resource persons from Kohima Law College Limkhushi Thongliu, Sepikyu J. Sangtam, Temsunungsang Aier, Sezilo-u Losou & Yangrothung Lotha. 

A press release from TBHJ warden Thorhu stated that, speaking on environmental issues, the resource person mentioned that every citizen had a moral duty towards environment protection. 

One of the Fundamental Duties under Article 51(g) of the Constitution of India says “it shall be the duty of every citizen of India to protect and improve the natural environment including forest, lakes, rivers and wild life, and to have compassion for living creatures”.

Due to the pressure of population and technology, the biophysical environment is being degraded, sometimes permanently, the resource person stated. In recognition of the felt need for environmental protection, various regulatory measures have been taken in our country over the past of more than twenty years such as the enactment of the Wildlife (Protection) Act 1972, the Water (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act 1974, the Forest (Conservation) Act 1980, the Air (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act 1981, the Environment (Protection) Act 1986, etc. 

The participants were also told that with the state capital Kohima being finally qualified as one of the smart cities, the town dwellers were expected to contribute towards promoting a healthy and pollution free atmosphere. The authorities may ban the present system of rearing pigs in a pigsty, opening of septic tank and also discourage certain developmental works which may cause environmental damages and disaster including stone quarry, etc. 

The other several topics such as Consumer Rights, Human Rights, Food Safety & Standard Act 2006, Lokayukta, Public Services delivery system, National Food Security Act 2013, State Consumer Helpline Toll Free No. 1800-345-3701, Street vendors Act 2014 were also presented during the seminar. 

The TBHJ monitor also spoke at the program and thanked the students of Kohima Law College.
