Expressing serious concern, Nagaland Governor P.B Acharya has stated that corruption has diluted the rich fabric of the Naga society.

“It is high time for the people to realize that the worst enemy for development is insurgency and corruption,” said Acharya, adding, “All should stand against corruption and the religious faiths in the state should play a bigger role in this fight against corruption and various social evils.”

Lately, governor has been touring all the districts of Nagaland in order to get first hand information and to interact with the people on issues faced by them.

Speaking at the public reception held here in honour of the Governor and his lady wife, Kavita Acharya, Acharya said “Aos were the pioneers and Aos have played a major role in the formative years of the state. Well known personalities like P. Shilu Ao, the first chief minister of Nagaland, former chief minister and present Odisha Governor, Dr. S.C Jamir and Dr. T. Ao former Indian Olympian have made the state proud and they were from the Ao community.”

He asserted that people need to look up to such personalities who have not only contributed for their own community but the state and the nation as well.

Referring to the phrase—‘India is a rich country but the people are poor’, he said Naga people need to realized that Nagaland is rich but the people are poor. In this regard, he called upon the people to make the best use of the rich natural resources available in the state and start-up up industries to tackle the economic and unemployment issue.

He also called upon Nagas who have been out of the state to take the challenge by coming back to the state and contribute in all possible ways. “Crores of rupees that come for development to the state from centre should be well monitored so that the beneficiaries get their due share.”

Acharya also lamented that the implementation of Mid-Day Meal scheme in many schools are not satisfactory, “Children from economically weaker section are deprived of their basic rights.”

On Naga political issue, Acharya shared since government of India led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi is serious in bringing about a permanent solution, people should unite and bring everyone on board.
