The State Level Parliamentary quiz competition was held on November 24 at ATI Imagine Hall, Kohima. Organised by the Department of Parliamentary Affairs Nagaland, 12 districts participated in this year’s competition. The event was graced by KG Kenye, Minister of Power and Parliamentary Affairs as the Guest Speaker.

In his speech, Kenye stated that Parliamentary Democracy itself is something very special in practise and every citizen must grow up to be responsible citizens of the nation and to be a member of the international community. “It is expected for the new generations to be more responsible in their outlook and way of life. And this can happen only if they grow up in such an environment where one is properly guided, taught and acquainted with the principles of democracy and practice from a very young age,” said Kenye.

Kenye also shared the view that asserted parliamentary democracy must be practiced even private lives.

Stressing on the use of technology, Kenye stated that while technology has become useful and essential in today’s life, he cautioned the gathering on the information overload which ultimately leads to misinformation. “Do not swallow everything that we see in the internet because not all news available there are true. Don’t promote fake news,” said Kenye.

Kenye also opined that the present generation is fortunate because the State is focusing on education where young citizens are provided with opportunities such as the Parliamentary quiz competition.

Back in the day, Kenye said, they were not given opportunity to delve in the issue of parliamentary democracy, which has often led to the tendency for them to use unparliamentary languages and behaviours. “And to make sure the future generations do not make such mistakes, we are making our best to educate the children by organising such program,” said Kenye.

During the event, Kenye also reaffirmed the government’s efforts to provide a better future for the younger generation while also highlighting the limitations faced by government. He encouraged the young gathering to work towards a future that can provide avenues beyond government jobs.

The 12 district that participated in the competition were Chümoukedima, Dimapur, Kiphire, Kohima, Niuland, Noklak, Peren,Phek, Tuensang, Tseminyu,Wokha and Zunheboto.
