Dimapur, January 28: The Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) has congratulated Dr SC Jamir on being conferred the prestigious Padma Bhushan award.
“It is appropriate to acknowledge a person who has steadfastly stood by the 16-Point Agreement which led to the birth of Nagaland as the 16th State of the Indian Federal Union. The award comes after 60 years of service and tall standing. It is God’s providence that he lives on to hand over the values of the 16-Point Agreement to newer generations and siblings,” said NPCC president K Therie in a press release.
The NPCC also congratulated and thanked the Governor of Nagaland for naming Durbar Hall as Dr Imkongliba Hall. “It is befitting to acknowledge him for pioneering and leading to the 16-Point Agreement. He gave his life for our today,” it said.
The NPCC further thanked the Governor for recognizing all the Nagaland People’s Convention members. “We are indeed greatly indebted to their farsighted vision and wisdom that has instilled Statehood with safeguards under the provisions of Art.371(A),” it added.
