Develop sense of nationalism: Acharya

By Correspondent

DIMAPUR, March 30 - Nagaland Governor PB Acharya has urged the people to develop a sense of nationalism and contribute individually towards taking the country forward and making it number one in the world.

Speaking as the chief guest at the inaugural programme of Rotary Rahat Medical Mission at Dimapur District Hospital here on Monday, Acharya warmly welcomed the 20 medical specialists in various fields and applauded their good gesture of coming to the State to provide free medical services to the people.

Impressing on the potential of natural and human resources in the eight north-eastern states, Acharya echoed Prime Minister Narendra Modi�s speech quoting, �Unless Northeast develops, India cannot progress.�

He said though the region was blessed, yet it had become a one-way traffic since people from the region go to the mainland seeking job, further studies and for medical help but people from the mainland had little reason to come to the region and also have fear psychosis due to insurgency.

He called on the visiting doctors to not have any apprehensions but to provide the best services to the people with an open mind and in such a way that it would generate a feeling of wanting to stay back and continue with their services.

Acharya said although there were several dozen insurgent groups in the region and where Nagaland witnessed its share for some time, people have faced the issue boldly and have moved forward at the same time.

Quoting a famous saying �India was great but Indians are poor�, Acharya said the whole nation was one and in order to let the country progress in all the fields and to become a developed country, there has to be equal services and opportunities in all the diverse ways.

He, however, lamented that despite having enough human resources, people have become self-centred and think only about himself and his family. Such mindset needs to be changed to have a progressive society, he added.

He said as much as people may feel indebted to their families, yet they should also know that they were equally indebted to their village, college, state and above all their country. He called on the gathering to develop a sense of nationalism, ignite it and take our country forward.
