Dimapur, July 13 (EMN): President of Nagaland Voluntary Consumers’ Organisation (NVCO), Kezhokhoto Savi who is also the professor in-charge of BCI practical and training of Kohima Law College, has officially launched “Know your rights & entitlement awareness campaign” on July 13 in the college premises.
The campaign was launched to create awareness in the society, the press release received here on Friday from the college informed.
Speaking at the launching programme, Savi has declared to conduct awareness campaign on consumer rights, Food Safety & Standard Act 2006, human rights, Lokayukta, National Food Security Act 2013, Environmental and Street Vendors Act, public services delivery system etc.
On the issue of Lokayukta and illegal taxation and illegal collection of cash on the highways in Nagaland, Savi has denied a news report published in ‘The Week.’
“The NVCO had at no point of time informed the National Investigation Agency (NIA) in connection with the summoning of the former chief minister, TR Zeliang or others by the NIA. The NVCO had never met or talk to any member of NIA,” Savi maintained.
Each student of the final year LLB were allotted seven minutes time to present a topic of their choice, which is more less a final rehearsal to be conducted in several colleges led by its professor in-charge.
Savi stated that every topic seemed to be important as awareness was lacking in the society either on ‘food safety’ or ‘food security.’ He also stated that food items available in the market are not safe adding the citizens are not getting rice as per entitlement under National Food Security Act 2013.
He further remarked that every citizen, be in the urban or rural, should know their rights as guaranteed by the Consumer Protection Act of 1986.
