The sudden demise of Shri Lanu Longchar, resident of Bank Colony and former member of the erstwhile Dimapur Town Committee (DTC) in the wee hours of 19th of April 2018 due to cardiac arrest has come as a shock to us.
He was a public leader of repute and represented the Railway Colony area in the DTC. His oratory skill was very popular amongst the public of Dimapur, more particularly the non-Naga community as his fluency in Hindi due to his service in the Army was enjoyed by one and all. In his death, the people of Dimapur have lost a fatherly figure and pioneer. Since he was a resident of the Municipal Ward represented by me, I have lost a guiding force and the void created by his departure will be difficult to fill.
While expressing my deepest condolences to the family members of Late. Lanu Longchar, I also pray to the Almighty to grant eternal peace to the departed soul.
Kuhoi Zhimo, Chairman, Sumi Council Dimapur
And Ex-DMC Councillor, Ward-5
