Amit Shah greets Nagaland on ‘Statehood Day’ ahead of NE visit to discuss Peace Talks
NEW DELHI: Union Home Minister Amit Shah greeted the people of Nagaland on the occasion of the state’s 58th Statehood Day. Shah will soon be visiting the Northeast Indian State of Manipur to discuss the Naga Peace Talks, which are rumoured to be in their final stages.
“Greetings to our sisters and brothers of Nagaland on their Statehood Day. May this beautiful state scales new heights of progress in the years to come,” Amit Shah wrote on Twitter, conveying his greetings.
Nagaland celebrated its 58th statehood day on Tuesday, but this year the celebrations would be a low-key affair due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to reports, main programme of the statehood day celebrations was held with limited invitees at the Secretariat Plaza in the presence of the Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio.
Nagaland governor R.N. Ravi also greeted the people on its Statehood Day by paying tributes to the ‘Founding Fathers of Nagaland’, leaders of Naga Peoples’ Convention (NPC) besides martyrs and countless Nagas.
Greeting the people of the State on the eve of 58th Statehood Day of Nagaland, Ravi said, “We stand at the crossroads of history. The right decision taken today will determine our future and the destiny of our coming generations.”
“The Government of India has never ever talked, much less negotiated with anyone on the territorial integrity and sovereignty of the country. Any misadventure to disintegrate this great nation shall not be tolerated,” Ravi said.
With common understanding having been reached on all the issues across the table and conclusion of Naga peace talks on October 31, 2019, the people of Nagaland are anxiously waiting for the new dawn, he said.
