KOHIMA: Union Minister for DoNER and Parliamentary Affairs Pawan Singh Ghatowar has said the Hornbill Festival of Nagaland was a great occasion for the country and one that the nation was proud of.

He appreciated the Nagaland government for immortalising the popular bird, Hornbill by naming the festival after it.

Speaking at the flagging off ceremony of the World War II Vintage Peace Rally to commemorate the famous Battle of Kohima during the World War II, organised by the state government and the Nagaland Adventure and Motor Sports Association (NAMSA) on Tuesday at The Heritage, Mr Ghatowar said Nagaland has the qualities to emerge as one of the best states of the country.

Mr Ghatowar, who is also a prominant tea-tribe leader, added that the Centre was willing to give assistance in all possible ways.

He lauded the efforts of Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio for playing a perfect host to the Hornbill Festival which he said was one of Rio’s biggest contributions in bringing people together.

This year’s Hornbill Festival saw the participation of High Commissioner of Bangladesh Embassy in India Tariq A Karim at the Naga Heritage village, Kisama on Monday. (UNI)
