Yitachu sees Naga unity in spiritual approach

Phek, January 12 (MExN): Parliamentary Secretary for Law and Justice, Yitachu appeals to Churches to continue to pray for peace and reconciliation for the Naga people stating that it is only through a spiritual approach Nagas can be united.
Speaking as the chief guest at Kamaleah area’s cultural programme on Thursday,

Yitachu said it is difficult for Nagas to be one; churches should keep on praying for peace and a peaceful environment, he said.
Observing that a peaceful environment is a must for any developmental activity, the Law and Justice Parliamentary Secretary also asked Naga undergrounds to work towards bringing about peaceful co-existence so that developmental works can take place  in the state. He also said that co-operation is needed from all walks of life for the government to carry out any developmental initiatives. 

Yitachu also reminded of the need to preserve and promote the rich Naga cultural heritage maintaining that it is one of the most important aspects representing the Nagas’ identity as much towards promoting tourism. Yitachu also told the gathering that their culture and tradition, which represents their identity as a people, should not be confined to ‘songs and dances’ but have to be maintained with a good behavioral approach and attitude in all spheres of life.

Calling one’s culture as a conduit that speaks of everything, Yitachu also reminded the people that their culture is one of the main tourism sources. On this, the Parliamentary Secretary challenged youths to focus more on the tourism sector. At present, tourism is one of the fastest growing industries in the world, he reminded. Further, terming the ‘year of farmer’ as a success, he said farmers should aim for economic activities from a commercial viewpoint. Yitachu also stressed the need for proper road facilities and suggested to the farmers to set up agri-markets in their respective areas. Earlier, Yitachu had inaugurated the newly-constructed building for Lephori Government Middle School, under the SSA programme.
