Nagaland Governor pays tribute to Dr. Imkongliba Ao
Says Dr. Ao pulled the Nagas out of bloody chaos
Dimapur, Aug. 23 (EMN): Governor RN Ravi has paid heartfelt tribute to Dr. Imkongliba Ao, the founding father of Nagaland, on his 62nd martyrdom day on behalf of the people of the state and the country.
The death anniversary of Dr. Ao, President of Naga People’s Convention, falls on August 24.
“A visionary leader with extraordinary courage and strategic foresight, Dr. Ao pulled the Nagas out of a bloody chaos, united the Naga family in one politico-administrative entity – the Nagaland state, the 16th state of the Indian Union, with uniquely special constitutional dispensation safeguarding the identity and interests of the Nagas and laid a rock solid foundation for the future of its people according to their own genius,” read Ravi’s message.
“On this solemn occasion, let us commit ourselves to build a Nagaland of Dr. Ao’s dream – a happy and prosperous state in which our youth, free from every kind of fear, apprehension or inhibition, will blossom in an eco-system of unlimited opportunities for growth and fulfilment,” it added.
