RPP said during the advancement of the walk, the team has been stacked with numerous approbation and also contributions of cash and kind from villagers and passersby. RPP leaders mentioned that they have held a lot of fruitful interactive discussions with villagers and church leaders during the walk during which they got an opportunity to listen to grievances and receive first-hand information about the living conditions of the people. The team also accentuated the lack of basic amenities such as good roads and bridges in many of the areas, which is a deprivation of the rights of the people.
Meanwhile, the team has appreciated the selfless hospitality received from the people so far and requested the people to continue holding steadfast in their hopes on the RPP.
The RPP also appealed to the people of Nagaland to remember the team in their prayers for good health and God’s protection as they continue walking in their quest for a “Renewed Nagaland”.
