The assembly sang the national anthem for the first time in February, almost 60 years after Nagaland became a state. The Assembly budget session there began on February 12 with a speech by Governor RN Ravi.
Nagaland: Nearly 60 years after Nagaland became a state, a rare incident took place when the national anthem of India ‘Jananganamana’ was sung in the assembly. For the first time in history, the Nagaland Assembly was echoed by the people. Assembly sessions began on February 12. On this occasion Governor RN Ravi addressed the assembly. The national anthem was played for the first time in the Nagaland Assembly before the speech.
The state of Nagaland was formed on December 1, 1963. But no one has ever sung the national anthem in the assembly since then. Whatever the reasons for this, the anthem has changed in recent assembly sessions. Speaking on the occasion, Speaker Longkumar said, “It is appropriate to sing the anthem when the Governor is worshiping the House. The same happens in the other assembly. I suggested that the national anthem be sung so that the government would accept my views, ”said Langkumer.
Assembly Commissioner and Secretary Dr. PJ Anthony said that the members of the Assembly wholeheartedly welcomed the new tradition that has just been introduced. In fact, the northeastern states of Nagaland, Manipur and Mizoram have a large non-Hindi speaking population. The vast majority of those in those states are Christians. There are seven districts in the state of Nagaland. About 84 per cent of the state’s population belongs to the 16 Naga tribes. Nagas belong to the Indo-Mongoloid race. And there are about 40,000 Chin people. Among them are 220,000 Assamese and 14,000 Bengali Muslims.
