Dimapur, July 11: The combined annual training camp of the National Cadet Corps’ 1st Nagaland girls’ battalion had its closing ceremony, on July 11 at the Livingstone Foundation Higher Secondary School in Dimapur.
Speaking at the function as guest of honour was Nagaland’s director general of police (DGP) T John Longkumer. He lauded the cadets for undergoing the training with discipline. The cadets were also presented with certificates and trophies. He said it is a “golden key to opening doors” in regard to employment.
“Unity and discipline is the core of the country and India being a diverse nation, the question of unity is supreme,” said Longkumer. Without that essence, the unity of this culturally diverse country will cease to exist, the police chief told the gathering.
Longkumer hailed the NCC members as future citizens of the country. He encouraged them not to shy away from working outside the state too. Likewise, he emphasised on ‘simplifying and finding clarity with all the information’ one receives in today’s world.
“Half of the problem is solved by simplifying and processing any issue,” the DGP said.
Among others, commissioner of police Limasunep Jamir was also at the function. He said that the most important element of success was discipline.
“All other parameters will follow if you have that discipline,” Jamir said. He urged the students to remember God in whatever they do.
The proprietor of the school, Andrew Ahoto, delivered a brief speech. “NCC should be encouraged from class 8 onwards as discipline is what makes a man or a woman,” he said. There is a lot of scope in this field, he said.
The training camp was held during July 3-12. The camp had 436 cadets including 31 boys from different schools and colleges and from across the state.
