Co-convenor Kesosul Christopher Ltu said that the idea of conducting sessions with the five legislators as speakers is to create a common platform for legislators to deliberate on student welfare issues and at the same time for the students to learn.
Participants for ‘Miss ANCSU’ beauty pageant, a special session for women will be choreographed by Glamours Hub Entertainment Nagaland director Sasongdangba Yaden. However, the panel of judges was not disclosed.
