DIMAPUR, DECEMBER 2: Nagaland Governor Prof. Jagdish Mukhi today expressed confidence that a final agreement to the Naga political issue, an agreement that is “fair to most of us and meets the expectations and aspirations”, will be reached soon.
Interacting with villagers at Village Council Hall, Tuophema village, on Friday, the Governor said Nagas are expecting a lasting peace and was confident that a final agreement will be reached soon.
Prof. Mukhi also called upon the youth, especially the literate youth, to venture in the field of agriculture as their profession as Government jobs are almost exhausted.
The Governor was of the view that farmers should be issued land cards so that they can be guided on what type of crops should be sowed in their soil. He assured that the Government is committed to provide seeds, manure for the dedicated farmers, or pesticides if essential.
Market linkages, transportation and modern facilities, etc., being other important factors, he assured that the Government will take into them into account. He stated that the Government shall ensure that crops are being insured in the PM scheme to get the full return of their produce and that farmers should get proper value for their produce.
Prof. Mukhi also remarked that cultural activities, dances, songs, dramas are in the blood of Nagas as observed on the inaugural day of Hornbill Festival. The cultural troupes presented cultural extravaganza that attracts people throughout the country and from abroad, though a small State in the country Nagaland is a very important State for the country, he stated.
