Governor also encouraged the delegation to arrange for Nagas of Myanmar to visit not only the State of Nagaland but to also conduct “Bharat Darshan” from time to time so as to strengthen ties between the two countries. He further called for cultural exchange programmes between the two countries. Acharya said NEZCC could also sponsor cultural programmes and exchanges with Myanmar Nagas.
