Dimapur, November 18: As a part of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, a sales day was organised on November 18 at Botsa Town by Joint Forest Management Committee (JFMC), Self Help Groups under Nagaland Forest Management Project & Forest Development Agency.

Addressing the village members, V Mato Koso, Field Management Unit Head Chiephobozou Range, expressed gratitude to the SHG members for bringing their organic products to sell to the public. He urged the SHG members to organise such programmes in the future and assured all possible help to assist them.
Addressing the SHG members, Nagato K Aye, Team Leader FNGO NEIDA, asked them to approach the Community Mobilizers for any assistance. Since many villages are located near the highway, he said that the SHGs have the advantage of selling their products.

SHGs and JFMC members from Tuophema, Zhadima ‘A’ and Seiyhama villages under Chiephobozou Range took part during the sales day.
