Addressing a press meet at Dimapur Circuit House, Friday, executive convener of Dorian Society, Ao Meren said though there are countless slogans shouting against communal violence, there aren’t enough effort to help the victims, and in observing their plight he added, the society has come up with an initiative to organize the Naga Idol roadshow to help raise funds for the affected. Besides, he pointed out that in buying ticket for the show, one would not only contribute to the victims but the Idol aspirants as well, and appealed the public to buy tickets to help someone rebuild their life. “The main objective of organizing Naga Idol roadshow was to garner public support for the affected people.” “We are totally against communal violence”, he said. He also disclosed that during the show various clips, write ups on Orissa would be shown and distributed. Also talking to presspersons, NSACS additional programme director, Dr. L Yanthan said the primary objective of supporting the reality show was to carry out the message of HIV/AIDS prevention and measures to the youth. “Since the present youth are so much into music, we have decided to educate the youth about the HIV/AIDS thorough this show,” Dr. Yanthan said.
