Nagaland chief minister, TR Zeliang has sought the cooperation of all in working together towards ensuring permanent peace in Nagaland. He said this while addressing a gathering on the occasion of flagging off an Assam Rifles’ tri -nation motorcycle expedition at Kenguruse Hall, IGAR (N) Hqs here on Tuesday.
Expressing his joy at the enthusiastic participation of Assam Rifles (AR) personnel in the motorcycle expedition to Bangladesh and Myanmar, Zeliang also urged the country’s oldest paramilitary force to continue its efforts through various activities to attract youth of the region towards positive pursuits in life. 
He also lauded the Central force for carrying out charity works in the State, including organizing free medical camps, helping poor villagers and conducting other civic action programmes, and termed these as “remarkable”.
Zeliang commended  the expedition’s team leader Col Pratyush Kumar Singh and the AR for enhancing security of the NE region. Recalling the contribution of “Iron Man of India” Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel towards nation building, Zeliang said the first Home minister of free India through his untiring efforts had paved the way for unifying the princely states into one nation. 
He said the motorcycle expedition was an outcome of special efforts put in by the Assam Rifles to reach out to their counterparts in Bangladesh and Myanmar, besides people of the North-eastern States to foster unity. He added that the expedition would not only offer adventure, but also take its participants through unexplored land that would be an experience of a lifetime.
He said it would also allow them direct contact with varied culture and traditions of the Northeast, which would help them in understanding the dynamics of the region and thereby prepare them to serve the people of the region even better.
The programme was attended by IGAR (N) Maj. Gen. Sanjay Gupta, host of ministers, parliamentary secretaries and AR officials.
