Kohima, 20 July, (

Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio continued to shower praises on the State media, appreciating their works, contributions and roles in strengthening of the “pillars of democracy.”

While presenting Budget for the year 2013-14 in the Assembly on July 18, the Chief Minister, who is also Minister in-charge of Finance, acknowledged that the “press and media have come a long way in Nagaland, and they continue to play a constructive role. “I must specially compliment them for their comprehensive coverage of the proceedings of the Assembly sessions, thereby taking the business of this august House to our constituents,” he stated.

In his last Vote-on-Account for the year 2013-14 presented in the Assembly on March 16, Rio also hugely complimented the State press and media saying that they had been doing “commendable service to the people and it goes without saying that a positive and constructive media is a driving force behind the delivery mechanisms of the other three organs.”
