DIMAPUR, AUG 26 (NPN) | Publish Date: 8/26/2020 12:47:09 PM IST

Central Nagaland Tribes Council (CNTC) has expressed solidarity with the new Naga Council Dimapur (NCD) team and declared its full cooperation and service, whenever required, for peace, harmony and unity of citizens of the town.

In a press release, the council appealed to everyone to join hands and work together for all Nagas in particular and non-Nagas in general, adding that this will happen only if this oldest institution was strengthened. It said everyone as humans had omissions and commissions which sometimes have to be overlooked in order to progress and live in harmony.

Lauding former NCD president Bangerloba Ao and his team for their leadership and for being able to complete construction of the new Naga cemetery as the old one had fully run out of space for burials, CNTC said this service was praiseworthy as disposal of bodies had become a matter of grave concern for all during COVID-19 pandemic. 

Hoping that Naga Council Dimapur would continue to zealously work for the denizens of Dimapur in the days to come and overcomes whatever challenges that might come up with all the Nagas standing in unity, the tribes council expressed happiness with the newly-elected team led by K Ghokheto Chophy and assured to give its full support for the well being of all.

It appealed to everyone to shun their differences and work hand in hand for a progressive and harmonious society.

CNTC observed that being one the oldest organisation of Dimapur that traces its date of origin way back to 1949, NCD had endured tremendous trials, hardships and sacrificed a lot for the Nagas. Even before becoming a town when Dimapur was a tiny hamlet and most Nagas lived in villages, NCD was engaged in pioneering work for early Naga settlers, it pointed out.

According to the council, the pioneers who formed NCD were truly farsighted, visionary and courageous. It said the present Nagas of the town should owe their gratitude to NCD for their services.

The release noted that Dimapur today has grown into a huge cosmopolitan city with people of every ethnicity residing here resembling a mini-India and emerged as Nagaland’s main commercial hub, whose due credit should be given to NCD.
