During the programme DC thanked the participants for displaying a show of unity and celebration of India’s history.
He pointed out that no other country in the world was as diverse as India and although people had a wide array of lifestyles, beliefs and cultures, there was “a strong sense of unity among the people.”
Shanavas said India getting freedom from the bondage under British rule was celebrated and that “Nagaland also enjoyed that freedom in several ways.”
Sr SP, Kevithuto in a short remark said the main purpose of the gathering was to show the freedom the people were enjoying after being under British rule for close to 200 years.
He said citizens of the country were reaping benefits of ceaseless efforts put in by the freedom fighters in securing independence.
