Kohima/ Guwahati, January 11: To commemorate the historic day of 10th January 1929 when the memoranda for Naga Hills was submitted by Naga Clum to Simon Commission, Nada Day was celebrated for the first time on Wednesday. Celebrated at Khuochiezie local ground, the event was hosted by Angami Public Organization themed on “Nagas without borders.”

The festive atmosphere gripped the entire state on this day, which was celebrated to promote unity among the Naga tribes across the border.

Meanwhile, Forum of Naga Reconciliation (FNR) has stated that the decision to organize the event has been taken only after consulting the Naga apex organization.

Reportedly, the event came into being following the efforts made by Naga Hoho, an apex Naga tribal body, who sought Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s assistance in rescheduling the forthcoming Nagaland Assembly elections to a later date, while seeking an early solution to the insurgency-related issues in Nagaland.

In this view, a framework agreement has been signed by the Modi government and rebel group NSCN (I-M) (National Socialist Council of Nagaland) to end the insurgency in the state.
