KOHIMA, June 3 - Nagaland Chief Minister Shurhozelie Liezietsu has expressed his regrets that due to the Naga political problem, Nagaland could not be developed to the expectation. However, he expressed confidence that once �permanent settlement� comes, development will take place at a faster pace.
Shurhozelie said this while interacting with the eight-member delegation from Virginia Baptist Missions and Baptist Collegiate Ministry led by Rev Jeffrey S Buffkin who called on the Chief Minister in his office here recently.
The Chief Minister expressed his appreciation to the Americans particularly the American Missionaries for bringing Christianity to the Naga people. He said, �had the American Missionaries not entered into our land and spread the gospel, the Naga people would not have been what we are now.�
