Prez visit: CNTC expresses dismay over govt advisory

Central Nagaland Tribes Council (CNTC)– Ao, Sumi and Lotha tribes, has joined the growing chorus against State government’s advisory to officials to be present at their respective stations in view of President Droupadi Murmu’s maiden visit to Nagaland coinciding with sesquicentenary celebrations of Christianity in the State scheduled from November 1.
Central Nagaland Tribes Council, through its media cell, termed the timing of President’s visit as unfortunate and appealed to the State government not to restrict anyone from attending the celebration, but make alternative viable arrangements so that the community could celebrate the occasion freely without any interference.
Since the sesquicentennial celebrations were not only historic to Ao Baptist Arogo Mungdang (ABAM) but to entire Nagaland and were planned long ago, CNTC said such advisory by the government or any organisation should be avoided.
The council also extended greetings to ABAM in its preparation to celebrate the advent of Christianity in Ao Naga soil from November 1 to 3, and sincere appreciation to all well-wishers who would be joining the celebrations.
