Support peace process: Guv

Dimapur, August 14: Governor of Nagaland PB Acharya has appealed to all sections of the Naga people, particularly the tribal hohos, civil society groups, NGOs, youth and hard working women and farmers to come forward and support the peace process with a spirit of understanding, brotherhood and unity.
In his message to the people of Nagaland on the eve of 72nd Independence Day, the Governor also called upon the youths to take up entrepreneurship and make Nagaland a golden Nagaland by proper use of our natural resources and convert into wealth by their educational empowerment.
The Governor stated that Naga farmers with the organic produce have an opportunity to be a member of cooperative movement and to be empowered financially and get a better price for their agri produce.
Nagaland has indeed progressed in the last 54 years. The agro-climatic conditions in our State provide commercial opportunities for agro-based and forest-based industries, medicinal and aromatic plants, horticulture, food processing, mining, tourism, handlooms and handicrafts sectors, he said.
Expressing pain that incessant rains have wreaked havoc in the State over the past few weeks resulting in a lot of damage to roads and a large number of houses, the Governor assured that Government machineries are making sincere efforts for restoring damaged infrastructure and providing relief and rehabilitation. He appealed to all to contribute liberally to the Chief Minister’s relief fund for the victims of natural disaster.
Greeting the people, the Governor said Independence Day is not just freedom that we celebrate, but the rare inner strength and unity of people that enabled our country to emerge as one of the fastest developing nations in the world. He expressed gratitude to the Armed Forces, Paramilitary Forces, State Police and other security agencies for their concerted efforts in securing the lives and properties of the people.
Stating that today every Indian, whichever country and wherever he may be, is proud that he is an Indian, Acharya added, “Hon’ble Modiji has made India proud.” (Page News Service)
