DIMAPUR — The Linguistic Minority Forum of Nagaland (LMFN) held a joint coordination meeting-cum-open discussion hour with PDA consensus candidate Dr. Chumben Murry on March 24 at Hotel Saramati in Dimapur. Representatives from 12 communities attended the event.

According to a press release, minority community leaders from various non-Naga communities spoke on the occasion about basic facilities and fundamental rights, specifically education, employment, and medical facilities. A memorandum was also submitted by the Gorkha community to Murry on behalf of Gorkhas residing in Nagaland.

While addressing the gathering, Murry stated that he would represent both Nagas and non-Nagas of Nagaland as their elected representative in the parliament. He assured that the voices of non-Nagas living permanently in Nagaland would not be suppressed.

He mentioned that the issues of minorities would be heard and assured them that he would convene another meeting with minority communities within the next few months to understand their issues.

He praised the Prime Minister of India and stated that as a result of Narendra Modi’s leadership and his Act-East Policy, mainland Indian politicians’ perceptions of Nagaland have improved, and many developmental activities have begun in the region.

Bishnu Bhattacharjee, convenor and chairman of the Linguistic Minority Forum of Nagaland, delivering the welcome address, clarified that the Linguistic Minority Forum of Nagaland is a non-political, united organisation formed for the welfare and development of the minority (Non-Naga) communities.

Its purpose is to address unaddressed issues with government authorities related to minority students, youth, men, and women living permanently in Nagaland, who have made significant contributions to the state through various activities, he said.

He requested all community leaders to cooperate with LMFN and work together to strengthen the communities and participate in nation-building.

Sanjay Dey served as the chairperson of the programme, and Anand Gurung acted as the programme recorder.
