On November 22, the ZCF & ZAC expedition team led by Zeliangrong Baudi (AMN) president Raitu Chawang, performed ‘UniTree’ (the Bayan tree plantation) at the tri-junction of Lalong, Hangrum and Asalu, under Assam to mark the symbol of Zeliangrong Inpui people’s unity. The adventure also aims at promoting a sense of brotherhood among Zeliangrong Inpui and other communities with whom it has close ethnic connection.
Speaking at the occasion, the Zeliang Baudi president said the expedition will go a long way in promoting a sense of brotherhood among Zeliangrong Inpui people and others.
“May this UniTree planted on this day forever remind the sons and daughters of Makuilongdi apropos the indestructible bond of consanguinity and strive for common homeland by breaking down the artificial boundaries,” he said.
The expedition team on bikes started from Tening town and passed through Njauna –Nagaland – Magulong –Manipur – Mount Kisha-Magulong Lalong, Hangrum – Assam – Laishong, Halflong, Ramgaijang, Silchar, Ramgaizang, Makoi, Tousem, Barak waterfalls, Zeilad lake, Namtiram, Haochong, Phalong and Longmai (Noney).
