Nagaland Governor greets people for Independence Day

Kohima, Aug 14 (UNI) Nagaland Governor R N Ravi greeted the people of the state on the occasion Independence Day and extended his heartiest greetings and best wishes to all.

In a message, on the eve of 73rd Anniversary of the nation’s Independence Day, Governor R N Ravi said on this auspicious occasion he remember to all the martyrs and pay sincere homage, who made supreme sacrifice, for the sake of unity and integrity of this great country.
He also paid his sincere tribute to all those who with their enterprises and endeavours built this nation great. He also offered his deep appreciation to the Armed Forces and Central Para-Military Forces of the Union, Police of the States and Security Agencies whose constant vigil, rock-solid commitment and sacrifices have ensured the integrity and interests of our nation.

During the last 73 years, India has emerged as the largest democracy in the world. It has relentlessly and unwaveringly pursued the path of a secular plural democracy. It has built internationally credible institutions of law, justice and a robust free media. Its identity is its immense diversity of faith, language, culture and cuisine. Indeed, it is a beautiful mosaic in which multiple faith and cultures thrive. Under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, India is rising to its long awaited destiny. It has become the 5th largest economy of the world, on way to becoming the 4th largest soon. We are aspiring to be a $ 5 trillion economy by 2025.

In the midst of all round fast pace growth, it pained when the donor see our Nagaland keeping pace with the advanced States of the Union, though in the last 55 years of Statehood, Nagaland has undergone significant transformation for the good. On some of the parameters of human resource development, there has been remarkable progress. But we are acutely cautious of the vast unmet potential of our land and people. The differential of growth and development between Nagaland and the advanced States of India is stark.

Governor Ravi said “today, Nagaland is at the cusp of history. A new dawn of peace and prosperity is beaconing Nagaland. Friends, we must not miss this historic opportunity. On this solemn occasion, I urge you all to commit ourselves to a pledge for building a Nagaland of our dreams which is the envy of the most advanced States of the Indian Union. On this day, I pray to God for his abiding grace on my people. I pray to Him for wisdom and strength in our pilgrimage to building a peaceful, progressive and prosperous Nagaland,” he said.
