Nagaland urges withdrawal of PAP

Nagaland minister of tourism, art and culture and election, E E Pangteang, has strongly appealed to the Union ministry of home affairs (MHA) to withdraw the protected area permit (PAP) from Nagaland because a peaceful environment is prevailing in the state.

He attributed this to the state government’s policy of promoting the annual hornbill festival.
