Acharya said that faced with the challenge of the proposed CAB, the Nagaland government had opposed and rejected the bill and likewise in a consultative meeting with mass based organisations, civil societies, tribal hohos, NGOs and political parties on January 31, the CAB was out-rightly rejected.
On the unresolved Naga political issue, the governor said "With the concerted efforts of the Tribal Hohos and mass based civil society organisations, the church, NGOs and the Naga national political groups (NNPGs), the different groups (Naga factions) have now come together and this seems to be the most opportune time for the Naga political groups to resolve the decades old Naga political imbroglio … "
The governor also appreciated the efforts made by the Centre for ensuring that "we move closer to a solution that is inclusive, honourable and acceptable to Nagas."
On government functioning, Acharya said "my government has decided that with focus on transparency and good governance, we will ensure accountability of government to the people."
Towards this objective, he said the government has appointed Lokayukta for the state, which will go a long way in tackling corruption and ensuring fair play and justice.
The CM Dashboard gives real time information about key parameters and schemes of various departments, he said.
Stating that ensuring proper health care for all people is an important priority of his government, Acharya said the state government has signed an MoU for establishment of a National Centre for Disease Control Branch at Dimapur.
"We are an agrarian society and our key focus has been to ensure doubling of farmers incomes with special thrust organic farming, horticulture, animal husbandry, coffee production and sericulture," he said.
Nagaland lives in the villages and rural development with creation of jobs and strengthening of rural infrastructure is a must for our economy to grow in an equitable manner, he said.
Highlighting some of the achievements of his government of the past one year along with the policies and programmes to be taken up in the coming year, the governor said "we are confident that with firm policies, we will be able to usher in all round development in the state".
The governor also expressed hope that the elected members of the House, as peoples representative will ensure they come together, in a constructive manner, leaving behind narrow political interests, and work hand in hand for the welfare of the state.
Advisor for Power, H Tovihoto Ayemi moved the motion of thanks to the Governors address while N Bongkhao Konyak seconded.
Deputy Speaker Zhaleo Rio announced that discussion and adoption of the motion thanks on the address will be taken up Friday.
The House also observed two-minute silence in remembrance of sitting member of the House Late Imtikumzuk and former MLA Late K Yamakam. Both of them passed away in September and November last year.
