Kohima, July 3: Nagaland Chief Minister Dr. Shürhozelie Liezietsu on Monday lamented that due to the prolonged Naga political problem many developmental activities have been retarded but he hoped that very soon the problem will arrive at an acceptable settlement which will lead to progress and development of our state.

“We are talking to the outfits in a hard and truthful way in order to move towards a solution”, the Chief Minister said.
Replying to Probationers’ queries during the interaction, Dr. Shürhozelie said the main purpose of education is to make a person a good individual.
