Nagaland Guv greets people on Statehood Day eve

By Correspondent

DIMAPUR, Nov 30 - Nagaland Governor RN Ravi today reiterated that the State is on the cusp of history. Greeting the people of Nagaland on the eve of the 57th Statehood Day, Ravi said: �A new dawn of a new Nagaland is beckoning us.� This is an apparent reference to the impending solution to the decades-old Naga issue. He expressed gratitude to the people of the State, tribal bodies, grassroots organisations, civil societies and church leaders for this.

�Now we have the sacred responsibility to build a new Nagaland. A Nagaland where every citizen is free from fear; fear of gun, fear of deprivation, fear of ignorance, fear of disease, fear of lack of opportunities and above all, fear of being unable to dream big,� Ravi said.

He stressed that the new Nagaland has to be built by all two million of its people, adding that it cannot be built by the Government alone. It is possible only through a mass movement in which every citizen is an active partner, he maintained.

According to Ravi, the new Nagaland has to be built on a foundation of rule of law, transparency and accountability where the majesty of law does not discriminate between the rich and poor, strong and weak, majority and minority, and where the governance � be it at the village or the State level � is transparent and accountable.

He said, �We need to build a culture of transparency, accountability and respect for law. A Nagaland where those in authority discharge their duty in the spirit of service.�

The Governor hoped that such a Nagaland would be free from corruption, that the citizens would feel empowered, and that those in authority would be humble, steeped in the spirit of service. Ravi said Nagaland is blessed with unparalleled potential, both human and natural.

He said the precious human resource, which is like an uncut diamond, has to be cut, built and polished with care. They have to be physically healthy and intellectually at par with the best in the world, he added.

The Governor urged the health workers, including doctors and paramedics, and the teachers, especially those serving in the far-flung rural areas, to render their service with an utmost sense of responsibility. He also appealed to the youths to take care of their health and be aspirational even if the prevailing situation around them is not adequately conducive.

Ravi assured that the situation would change for the better soon.
