The Governor of Assam & Nagaland, Prof. Jagdish Mukhi, also sent greetings to the state's residents on the eve and urged the Naga people to take advantage of the occasion to learn from their mistakes, deliberate, and engage in important issues, as well as to make more concerted efforts to transform the State.
