DIMAPUR, AUGUST 21: State Governor has assured to look into the welfare of the Garo community in Nagaland. The Governor made this assurance following submission of memorandum and discussion with the new office bearers of Nagaland Garo Tribal Council (NGTC), the apex body of the Garo community in Nagaland, which called on him led by its president Biplab K Sangma, at Raj Bhavan, Kohima, on August 17.
The new team held discussion with the Governor on various issues regarding the Garo tribe in Nagaland. The new team was accompanied by the president and general secretary of the Garo Students’ Union Nagaland Zone.
Meanwhile, Nagaland Garo Tribal Council (NGTC) had organised an installation prayer programme of new office bearers at Garo Baptist Church, Chumoukedima, on August 13 with Hopejoy Sharu, pastor of Pochury Baptist Church, Chumoukedima, as the speaker.
In his message, the speaker congratulated the new team of NGTC and encouraged them to work unitedly for the betternment and welfare of the people by forgiving and forgetting the past mistakes. He termed the Garos as an aboriginal tribe of Nagaland and said few Garos were assimilated with other major tribes earlier.
He advised the members to cooperate with each other to build better society without any ‘ism.’ He concluded his message saying ‘quality and deeds of a good leader will be written with a pen filled with ink in the history for his good works, but the deeds of a bad leader will be written with a pen without ink which will go unrecorded and invisible.’
President NGTC Biplab K Sangma delivered the welcome speech, while special songs were presented by Garo Baptist Youth Fellowship and members of Garo Baptist Church, Chumoukedima and the vote of thanks was delivered by NGTC vice president, Lexson D Sangma.
