All Nagaland Hindi Teachers’ Union (ANHTU), Longleng unit celebrated its 25th anniversary under the theme “refined, renewed radiant” at EBRC hall Longleng here, on Saturday with Sr. SDEO Longleng, Kilangsangla Aonok as the keynote speaker.

While delivering her keynote address, senior SDEO, Kilangsangla said that with Hindi being the official language of the country, it had become important for Nagas who pursue education and seek employment outside the state. She also said that it was important for people in businesses, especially those who have trades outside the state to learn Hindi.

The senior SDEO further called upon the Hindi teachers to value their most reputed profession and render their services assiduously, which would be catalyst to the growth of the state and nation. 

While delivering a brief history of ANHTU Longleng unit, silver jubilee convener, Shumei Antony Phom said the union had overcome hurdles and differences during the initial stage while trying to achieve its goal to be where it stood today. 

He said that during the mid 1990’s, the Hindi teachers union was under the umbrella of Phom Area Teachers’ Association (PATA). However, with an aim to uplift Hindi teachers and Hindi language in Phom area, a concrete decision to form the separate union was initiated and subsequently, the full independent union was formed on March 17, 1995 which got affiliated to the ANHTU Tuensang. 

Antony also said that when Longleng was created as a new district and bifurcated from Tuensang district in 2004, the union decided to have separate unit. 

Accordingly, it was necessitated and subsequently the nomenclature from Phom Area Hindi Teachers’ union was changed to All Nagaland Hindi Teachers’ Union, Longleng Unit.

He also said that though ANHTU Longleng unit had disassociated from ANSTA Longleng unit, All Nagaland Hindi Teachers’ union Longleng unit was a member of United Forum of Government Teachers’ Association Longleng District (UFGTALD), a conglomerate of teachers’ Association working for common cause of teachers of the Longleng district.
