Ukhrul scribes body condoles demise of Aja founder editor


IMPHAL, Dec 10: The Ukhrul District Working Journalists` Association has condoled the passing away of Ngathingkhui Hungyo, founding editor of the Aja Daily-First Tangkhul newspaper.

A statement of the association said the UDWJA would like to express profound sympathy and heart-felt condolences on the sudden and untimely demise of the founding Editor of The Aja Daily in the wee hours of December 10.

It said during this hour of grief and mourning, our deepest thoughts and prayers are with the bereaved family.

All members of UDWJA also join all the near and dear ones in sharing a deep sense of sorrow in the sudden loss of an enterprising man amongst the elders and betters of the Tangkhul community.

Ngathingkhui Hungyo was a man of vision, perseverance and accomplishment. Confronting numerous challenges, he founded and edited the first Tangkhul daily newspaper `The Aja Daily` way back in the early 1990s when technical resources and journalists were scarce amongst the Tangkhul, it said.

Today, the successful establishment of this newspaper stands testimony to his sincere endeavors to reach out to the unreached through dissemination of news.
