Kohima Municipal Council held its Pre-Christmas Celebrations at the Zonal Council Hall, Kohima at 4 PM on 15 December 2015 with Shri. Tohanba, Hon’ble Parliamentary Secretary, Municipal Affairs etc as Chief Guest. He highlighted his department’s plan for making Kohima a Smart City. Present for the occasion was also the DC Kohima. Dr. AJ Sebastian sdb delivered the Christmas Message, exhorting the gathering to put Christ back into the Celebrations becoming purely a mega social event throughout the world. As KMC is rendering the social service of cleanliness of the city, it is a sine qua non condition for inspiring people to delve into their inner recesses of their hearts to let Christ cleanse them of sin and evil: “Cleanliness is next to Godliness”, he asserted. The programme was chaired by Shri. Kovi Meyase, Administrator, KMC and invocation was made by Pastor Neichalie Chadi of Central Baptist Church, Bayavu.
