GPRN/NSCN, along with the rest of the world, observed World Environment Day by planting more than two thousand saplings in and around Khehoi designated camp.
The event started off with a prayer followed by a short message by Kilo Kilonser who pointed out that Naga people’s struggle should not only be political but should also be a struggle against destruction of our forest, wildlife and the rich natural vegetation for selfish gain.
“It is our duty to inform our people on the urgent need to preserve our rich flora and fauna that is slowly being destroyed” added the Kilo Kilonser. He urged governments, NGO’s and individuals to educate people about the dangers of global warming and other environmental issues.
The plantation drive was conducted to create awareness among all national workers on the need to preserve trees and other natural resources.
The event was organised by forest and natural resources ministry, GPRN/NSCN. Hothrong Yimchunger, Kilo Kilonser, and Jack Jimomi, FANR Kilonser led the plantation drive which also included ministry staff and Naga Army personnel led by Lt. Col Kiyehe, Commander, Council Camp.
