President of India, Droupadi Murmu, on Wednesday said Nagaland has come a long way in terms of development since the attainment of statehood on December 1, 1963, and urged the people to “rededicate” themselves towards the goal of a “more prosperous and developed” state.

Murmu, who is on a two-day visit to Nagaland, arrived at Dimapur airport on Wednesday afternoon before leaving for Kohima in a chopper to attend a civic reception accorded to her by the government of Nagaland.

She also urged women to come forward and involve more in public life, saying that empowered women bring development in society.
