Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio on Friday appealed to all peace loving people to work hand in hand and to assist both the government and the underground groups to find a permanent solution to the decades-old Naga conflict.

Rio, accompanied by his senior cabinet colleagues and officials, today undertook a goodwill visit to Yaongyimsem village in Mokokchung district, and reminded people unless we solve our present Naga political problems amicably, there is no future for the Naga youths, so therefore, everyone must make sincere effort towards resolving this protracted issue.

Stating that to build a nation, one should sacrifice one's life and also be ready to face all odds and means, the chief minister called upon the villagers to preserve the regional identity of the Nagas and work tirelessly for the Naga society.
