Kohima: The weeklong Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav – North East Festival began on Thursday in Kohima under the theme ‘Journey of Nagaland since Statehood’.

Home Commissioner Abhijit Sinha, while addressing the inaugural ceremony, shared how Nagaland became the 16th state of India and the journey it has made so far as the state will be completing six decades of statehood next year.

The festival, initiated by the Ministry of DoNER and North East Council (NEC), will continue till May 4.

Sinha said that Nagaland has been marching shoulder to shoulder through various initiatives that the country has taken in order to make the lives of the people better and also improve its infrastructure.

“On every parameter, we have done very well and one can feel the advancement and progress over the years, and the credit goes to all the citizens,” Sinha added.

The home commissioner shared how Nagaland has paved the way in running grass-root institutions and how it has dealt with problems at the village level, which other states learned and tried to emulate to create a system imbibing similar features.

While there are major areas that require improvement, he hoped to address the issues and shared his determination of developing the areas that need help. In this regard, he shared his desire of making Nagaland “one of the most developed and progressive states in the country”.

A video based on the theme of the festival was screened by the Department of Information and Public Relations (DIPR) as a significant initiative of the festival. The DIPR also organized a photography exhibition.
