He lamented that the issue of economic backwardness in the North-east is real and its devastating effect is already being felt, hence the need to go hand in hand, and together create a better world for the present generation and the other generations to come.

In his words, “If we are to move forward for a prosperous Northeast, our effort must be based on sharing information, knowledge, skills, time and resources. We need to pull up our sleeves and get geared for real action. The knowledge and skills we have acquired naturally, academically and through experiences should help us shape the North east into something we want to see as our own product.

“My fellow indigenes of the Northeast, the garment we need to wear is heavy, challenges are rigorous but we must embrace the pain and burn it as fuel for the journey ahead.

“Ladies and gentlemen, we must stand with courage, hope, objectivity and with unity. Fellow North-easterners, let us take this adversity of the past 12 years as one opportunity to show the world the best side of us.”
