    Education Is One Of The Best Things That Happened To Nagas After Christianity: Neiphiu Rio

    The students and youth of today have to work together to build our future: Rio

    Chief Minister of Nagaland, Neiphiu Rio said on January 23rd, 2020 said that education is one of the best things that has happened to Nagas after Christianity, so one should pursue education very seriously.

    Addressing the 71st Chakhesang Students Union General Conference at Pfutseromi village, Rio said, “Education is a very interesting and serious business as we know education is one of the best things that has happened to Nagas after Christianity. So one should pursue education very seriously and we should take one’s student period seriously so that we can build our future with knowledge as a man without education is like a bird without wings.”

    On the Naga political issue, he said, “Many people talk about politics but there is hardly anyone to act and to do the corrective measures. For the last 17 decades, Nagas have been suffering for the Naga political issue, because it is our birthright, but we have to be reasonable and responsible in a manner that what is possible and what is not and what is achievable.”

    He added, “We live in a very competitive world and that life is not easy. The present student leaders are the future of our society, therefore we have to take life seriously and learn to equip ourselves to face the challenging world. The government has recognized the unique history of our culture and traditions. So the Nagas have to unite and find a settlement. The students and youth of today have to work together to build our future.”

    Regarding the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) issue, he said, “We demanded that the Bengal Eastern Frontier Regulation Act 1873 be enforced in Nagaland and the Government of India has been kind enough to agree with us. We Nagas have been exempted from. It is the duty of the Government of Nagaland that the Inner Line Permit is enforced properly.”
