Nagaland: Legislators spread message of hope through a gospel hymn 



The world is facing an extraordinary challenge. As we fight the crisis of COVID-19, there is fear and uncertainty! Amid these trying times, Nagaland lawmakers united together to uplift the spirits of hope. 

Deputy Chief Minister of Nagaland Yanthungo Patton on Tuesday tweeted a short clip of a video on Twitter, where Nagaland legislators Neiba Kronu, Dr Nicky Kire, Toyang Chang and H Tovihoto Ayemi are seen singing a gospel hymn.

"He Healed The Blind Man," is the gospel hymn that the lawmakers provided their vocals to in the video. It was released to spread the message of hope and positivity and also provide inspiration to fight on.

It begins with a short message from the quartet that says, "Everybody is going through a difficult time because of the pandemic. Let us hope and pray that our Almighty God will heal us."

In the music video, H Tovihoto Ayemi, Nagaland MLA & Advisor to the Dept of Power, Neiba Kronu, Minister Planning, Parliamentary Affairs & Spokesperson and Dr Nicky Kire, adviser to urban development and municipal affairs, played the guitar and MLA Toyang played the drums.

The video also had snippets of COVID-19 related photos such as healthcare workers circled in prayer and police personnel urging people to stay at home.

The caption of the tweet by Dy CM Yanthungo Patton, who is also an MLA from Tyui Assembly, read, "We are sailing in stormy weather, but this song lifts our spirits, reminds us that it isn't forever, and gives us the inspiration to fight on and know that the Almighty is with us. Kudos to Sh @tovihoto, Sh @neibakronu, #DrNickyKire, and Sh #ToyangChang for this beautiful song."

BJP National Spokesperson and Nagaland legislator Mmhonlumo Kikon also took to Twitter to share the video.
