Nagaland Governor, PB Acharya urged the people of North East to change their mind-set and stop considering themselves backward. Addressing an academic gathering at Hotel Imphal in Imphal as chief guest, Acharya said North East was blessed with rich natural resources and urged the educated people to focus on utilising them. 

He appealed to the educated people of region to take advantage of the rich natural resources and usher in development. Noting that every citizen can be a game-changer in his or her own way and bring significant changes in the country, Acharya advocated empowerment of citizens through Right to Education. He stressed that India will be able to stand up only when everyone takes up responsibilities and play the role of a game-changer.

Mentioning that education, empowerment, power supply and employment were the basic impetus for development, the governor opined that universities should be able to give extensive knowledge to youth so that they can make use of their wisdom in bringing development to the society. He also observed that the main aim of universities should be to strengthen the society by empowering students through education.

Manipur University’s retired professor N Joykumar, who also delivered a speech on the topic “Historical Prospect of North East India”, stated that the region had played a key role in the anti-imperialist movement, and cited Bir Tikendrajit, Rani Gaidinliu and Hijam Irabot, among, others as examples. He said regional history was more important than national history, adding that the national history is created by regional histories.  Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage, Manipur Chapter convener Dr RK Ranjan delivered the keynote address.
