This can happen only in Nagaland!,” tweeted Rijiju.

    It may be mentioned that Nagas are inherent beekeepers and Nagaland is home to a variety of bee species. In 2007, the government launched Nagaland Beekeeping and Honey Mission to train villagers in the science of beekeeping. The state also celebrates ‘Nagaland Honey Bee Day’ on December 5 every year.
