DIMAPUR, Aug. 19: Nagaland chief minister TR Zeliang has urged the people of the State to be guided by the seven fundamental principles of the RED Cross- Humanity, Impartiality, Neutrality, Independence, Voluntary Service, Unity and Universality- and continue to work untiringly and with the same degree of dedication and selflessness in the days ahead.

Addressing the 31st annual general meeting of the Indian Red Cross Society, Nagaland State Branch, at Raj Bhavan, Kohima, Zeliang took the opportunity to call upon all present to give a close look at what the society has been doing in the past several decades. On study of the reports filed over the years, it is seen that the society, since embarking on its noble mission of working for the needy have indeed covered much ground notwithstanding the limited resources, he observed.

He, however, acknowledged the fact that much more needed to be done while expressing sincere appreciation to the Society for making huge strides in taking up various social service-oriented and humanitarian activities across the State. He made special mention of leaders of the Society and DCs of 11 districts of the State for such achievements and for their exemplary leadership.

He also spoke on some of the humanitarian activities undertaken by the Society during the period under report. The society rendered emergency ambulance service to the sick, organised medical and blood donation camps, provided relief to fire victims and alongside undertook membership enrolment drives and sensitised the youths about values and principles of the Red Cross, he noted.

Zeliang stated that in all these, what stands out as truly remarkable and noteworthy is of the Society participating in the implementation process of some key Centrally Sponsored Welfare programmes.

He further noted that efforts were made in the districts to mobilise resources through free-will donation and wanted that patrons, members and well-wishers should be encouraged to come forward and contribute generously for the cause of the needy.
