Chumoukedima, Nagaland, April 16 (HBTV): The Forum for Naga Reconciliation (FNR) has said it has adopted what it called a “Naga national anthem”.                 

The Naga political groups (NPGs), civil society organizations, churches, prayer centers, and citizens from across Naga areas converged for the event “Nurturing Naga Peoplehood: Liberating the Naga Spirit,” held from February 16 to the 18th, 2024, at Kutsapo in Nagaland.             

This, the FNR stated in a note received here, was strengthened by subsequent meetings of the NPGs and the FNR at Kohima on March 2, 2024, followed by Dimapur on March 6, 2024 and the latest meeting in Dimapur on April 13, 2024. These meetings were both critical reflections coupled with constructive appraisals of the ‘Journey of Common Hope,’ the FNR stated.

The FNR stated that the meetings on March 6 and April 13, 2024, have resolved to “legally” adopt “Naga national anthem,” written and composed by former IAS officer late R Kevichusa.       

In this connection, the forum stated, the resolution added that “. . . . . NPGs, institutions of learning, Naga civil bodies and all other organizations sing the Naga national anthem on important occasions.” 

This shall become effective with the publication of the news item, the FNR stated.
