Ziro ready to script history

Ziro in Arunachal Pradesh is getting a fresh look two days before the historic Nyishi-Apatani Summit. People start thronging in thousands from Saturday in the hilly township to get their names registered in the country’s first ever conclave to boost the bonhomie between two hills tribes.  

Till sunset the people even from the far flung areas made long queues in front of the Abotani Hall where the organizers have started registration. On Friday alone, more than 500 people have got their names registered at the Apatani Valley. 

The numbers are expected to multiply on Saturday as thousands of people are waiting to arrive in the spot by the morning. Chief Minister Nabam Tuki is scheduled to arrive in the conclave Saturday to witness the historic moment where the tribes are set to sign a set pacts to mend their decade old differences.
