Governor of Nagaland, P.B Acharya held an interaction session with editors of vernacular papers at Police guest house Chümoukedima on August 20.

Stating that all were equal in a democracy, irrespective of community or the size of population, Acharya observed that newspapers, as the fourth estate, could play a major role in changing the mindset of society.

During the interaction, the Governor enquired how the vernacular papers are dispatched to readers and spoke about the importance of daily papers reaching readers on time. He also encouraged the editors to approach him should the need arise and assured them that he would look into their problems. On a suggestion to recognize deserving media personnel during National programmes, the Governor felt that it was a genuine suggestion to be considered favourably, if routed through proper channels with relevant documents.

Emphasising on the importance of local dialects, Acharya said that eight Universities including three from his home town had started teaching tribal dialects after he took over as Governor.

Acharya also noted that apart from regular subjects, Universities should also focus on teaching ways to create wealth out of the available natural resources. 

“Create wealth and strengthen Nagaland, and this can only be done if the Universities stand up” Acharya maintained. He appealed to the Universities to introduce skill education. He also promised to help anyone willing to become an entrepreneur and boost the state’s economy.

He also said that on his appeal, the government of Nagaland had extended Rs.20 lakh as flood relief to Kodagu in Karnataka, his home state. The Governor also gave a relief amount of Rs. 5 lakh on his own behalf and said that the donated money would be handed over to the right agency.

OSD and PRO to Governor, and DPRO Dimapur also attended the meeting.
