Dimapur, April 30 (MExN): The NNC observed the 21st death anniversary of former NNC leader AZ Phizo today at Phizo Hill in Kohima, Nagaland.  “Indeed, the devoted pioneer NNC leaders led by A.Z. Phizo founded NNC on solid root of Naga race. Fairly well known that Naga race is quite different from that of the aggressor Indian race. That the needful in brief to say is that the Naga forefathers were in Nagaland right from the beginning as provided by the Almighty God,” stated a note from L Kaiso, secretary of the NNC. The NNC also highlighted some achievements of Phizo. AZ Phizo led several goodwill missions to India and meeting with Indian leaders during 1947-1952.  “A.Z. Phizo shouldered the responsibility of informing the outside world of the Naga national right, the severe suffering and aggression on Nagaland by India . The United Nations Organisations (UNO) was also informed on Naga nation and Nagaland in 1960,” NNC stated.   The NNC paid tribute to Phizo – “While looking back to former NNC President AZ Phizo’s important steps taken and achievements made in the teeth of aggression against Nagaland by India showed his greatness as the ever true leader of the Naga people and Nagaland. He knew thoroughly well what he had been doing for the best interest of the Nagas, so that the future generations can live happily in dignity.”
