New Delhi, November 17: Sending out a loud message that now is time for the North Eastern people to unite to form a better nation, Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Nabam Tuki called upon the people from the North East residing outside their home states in the country to come together in building a stronger India while respecting and preserving their identities.
“Let us be immersed in building together a strong India, where there is freedom of thought and expression and where all can grow, where differences are something we enjoy and not the grudge cause for rivalry,” Tuki said while attending the Silver Jubilee Celebrations of the North East Catholic Community of Delhi (NECCOD) in the national capital today.Congratulating the Catholic community from the North East on occasion of the Silver Jubilee, he said that the Bible and Catholic traditions teach all to be faithful to the nation and the Catholics, down the centuries, have been doing just that.

While pointing that coming from various states, ethnic and linguistic groups, people have been able to sink their differences and come together for the celebration, Tuki said the same can be achieved in all other aspects of daily life, particularly in nation building.

“You who are away from your homes in the North East and live in Delhi have a great role in educating our young to be faithful to their traditions and at the same time get absorbed into the national mainstream with pure heart and respect,” he said.

Tuki urged the North East community, particularly NECCOD, to become not just a source of inspiration and role models but a source of help to those in need and those who come down to the national capital far away from their homes and families. Tuki later attended the Holy Eucharist where the Chief Celebrant was Most Rev. Dominic Jala, Archbishop of Shillong, Meghalaya.
