Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) organized a parody of the opening ceremony of the XXXII Tokyo Olympics 2020 at the Dimapur Stadium here Friday.

Speaking on the occasion, NPCC president K.Therie recalled the first Naga Olympian and First Indian Football Captain Dr. T. Ao and recently, Naga woman archer Chekrovolu Swuro. He said Swuro had to represent Jharkhand state as member of the Indian archery team in the London Olympics 2012 since the government of Nagaland “could not support her through her training”. 

According to NPCC, the event was held to draw attention to the state stadium whose construction remains incomplete even after it was started 30 years ago.

Therie lamented on the sorry state of sports affairs in Nagaland which continues to struggle even with completion of the state stadium. 

He said in comparison, other neighboring states were consistently producing world class sportsmen and women. 

The NPCC president reminded that present chief minister Neiphiu Rio had assured completion of the stadium project since decades back and that the “as the assurance of a CM is promissory, it cannot be withdrawn”. Therefore, said Therie, people have a right to expect the fulfillment of such assurance.

According to NPCC press release, the programme also witnessed performances by N. K. Naga, Tokhuli Yepthomi, Aloboli Kinimi, Lipok and Kevin Newar. NPCC Vice President V. Lasuh pronounced a prayer. The programme was organized by NPYC and DCC Dimapur and supported by the Minority Dept and Kissan Cell of NPCC and the NSUI, DMCC and DYC.
