Nagaland Governor RN Ravi urged the ethnic Naga communities to overcome the bitterness and bad memories of the past and come together in the spirit of ‘forgive and forget’ and make a new beginning towards unity, prosperity, development and brotherhood.
“Nagas were at the cusp of history as a new dawn has begun for a new era of peace, unity and prosperity,” Ravi said addressing the Tokhu Emong Mini Hornbill at Wokha in the central part of Nagaland on November 7th, 2019.
The Governor stated that the spirit Tokhu Emong ‘Senchumta’ which means reconciliation and coming together was appropriate and befitting the present situation. Governor Ravi lauded the Lotha Hoho and the Lotha people in general for giving him immense support in his endeavour to bring peace on this land even before he became the Governor of the State.
Stating that as inheritors of very rich culture and civilization, he encouraged all to ensure that the rich culture does not fade away with the invasion of modernity, modern technology and modern way of life. He urged upon all to continue performing and observing festivals which binds the community together.
Ravi is also the interlocutor for the ongoing talks with various Naga insurgent groups, including the National Socialist Council of Nagalim-(NSCN-IM). The Centre had earlier set October 31st, 2019 deadline for the signing of the peace agreement but there has been no official announcement on the end or final settlement on this regard.
