“It is a matter of great pride that this language has the most words to express emotions, or describe any object in the entire world. This is a very rich language, but we have been unable to tell anyone about this language, and researchers have not been able to determine where and when it originated”, he said.
Daimary also said that this language was widely spoken in many regions in Nepal, West Bengal, and Bangladesh as far back as 2,000 years ago.
In his address, Daimary also stated that the problem of insurgency is the biggest problem plaguing the Northeast and wondered why no solution has been reached in 20 years.
He stated that the activities of the interlocutors should be closely monitored to find out how the peace talks with the insurgents are progressing.
