The NFNS will always seek his blessings from the heavenly aboard to cherish the dream of having more states in India for equal development and rapid progress. He served the Parliament as one of the best diabolic Speaker from 1996 to 1998, during NDA government.He was representing Tura Lok Sabha constituency of Meghalya,Islary said.
