Speech Of Shri Lal Thanhawla, Hon'ble Chief Minister, Mizoram On The Occasion Of 70th Independence Day (15th August, 2016)

English Version

Friends,

On this historic and glorious day in the annals of our great country – the 70th Independence Day, I extend my warm greetings to the people of Mizoram and to all the citizens of our great nation. It was on this day sixty-nine years ago, that we emerged from the shadows of domination, the yokes of oppression and injustice into a sovereign nation, standing on our own feet and inspiring others to walk the path to self-determination and independence.

Let us recall with pride and honour, the selfless sacrifices of the leaders of our Freedom Struggle such as Mahatma Gandhi, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Maulana Abul Kalam Azad and other such luminaries and enlightened minds; let us also remember the unsung stories of each and every brave hearted foot-soldier of our epic struggle and pay homage to the leaders and all those who contributed to our Freedom. It is because of their sacrifice that we can bask in the glory of democracy today. On this momentous occasion, let us all rededicate ourselves to the ideals on which our nation was founded and reflect upon the values and principles on which our nation is based. Let this day be not just a symbolic day but let it be, a day that every Indian across the globe can take pride and commit to making our nation greater in the global world.

As we look into the future with hope, I would like to share with you some of the achievements and progress of the Government of Mizoram during the last one year. 

1. The maintenance of law and order, the safety and security of the people and the well being and happiness of the people of Mizoram remains a matter of paramount importance for the government. During the last one year, I am happy that there has been no major law and order breakdown. In this regard, I express my gratitude to civil society and voluntary organizations for their unstinting support to law enforcement agencies in our efforts to maintain our status as one of the most peaceful states in the country and commend the efforts of law enforcement agencies. This year is significant for another reason; it is the 30th Anniversary of the signing of the Memorandum of Settlement, known as the Mizoram Peace Accord. In the last thirty years much has been achieved yet there is still more to be done. On this day, I call upon the people of Mizoram to rededicate themselves to the cause of peace and tranquility so that Mizoram can be an example for others to emulate.

A number of infrastructure development projects of Mizoram Police are underway and some will be completed very soon. Mizoram Police has achieved the highest rate of conviction per trial under Indian Penal Code for two consecutive years in 2013 and 2014 as per data compiled by the Bureau of Police Reforms & Development (BPR&D). CCTNS Networks linking all Police Stations is now in the final stages of completion while Aizawl City Surveillance Project has been successfully launched and is operational while the second phase covering all the important junctions ofAizawlCityis now currently underway. All Police Stations are regularly entering CCTNS data either online or offline and 3887 police personnel have been trained to use this system efficiently. Computerised Automated Synon Cipher System was introduced at Mizoram Police Radio Organization in May 2016 at five Cipher Stations (Aizawl, Lunglei, Kolasib, Mamit and Champhai). For the overall upliftment of Justice Delivery System in the state and in fulfillment of its commitment, the Government has upgraded Forensic Science Laboratory into a full-fledged Directorate under the Home Department.

2. NLUP continues to have a strong impact and it has contributed generously towards registering high rate of growth which is highlighted in Economic Survey, 2014-15. NLUP has also helped sustain economic growth for the last four consecutive years. The same Economic Survey also reflected reduction of area under Jhum cultivation by over 21 percent along with other improved basic indicators which are largely influenced by the positive impact of NLUP. Implementation of NLUP has been going on in full swing to complete spill-over works, especially for the 3rd and 4th Phase NLUP beneficiaries.

Specialized agencies which are part of the UN Joint Initiative Project have started their work. Through the collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the Consultants of UNDP and the Market Task Force have taken up comprehensive field survey within and outside Mizoram to design suitable model for marketing, keeping in view best practices adopted in different parts of the world. Under Food & Agricultural Organization (FAO), applied research on new strategy for cultivation in hill slopes areas called Mizoram Sloping Agricultural Land Technology (MiSALT) has made steady progress and it is expected that this will bring about transformation in cultivation on hill slope areas. United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) has formulated a pilot project for promotion of bamboo based industries while the South Asia Bamboo Foundation (SABF) has prepared a project for establishment ofAgarbatiPark. Under International Labour Organization (ILO), a Skill-gap Assessment has been made; this is the first indepth study of employment problem, under employment and skill development needs in Mizoram.

NLUP Implementing Board has initiated measures for marketing, including export of ginger and turmeric by implementing Pack House Project sanctioned by Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA). Through this initiative, substantial quantity of turmeric and ginger will be exported.

In addition, NLUP Implementing Board evinced the help of the University of Minnesota, who are taking up a collaborative research and compilation of edible mushrooms of Mizoram along with Mizoram University as a partner. By early 2017, it is expected that the list of edible and non-edible mushrooms can be finalised after detailed DNA and other testing; this can help people differentiate varieties and help them to safeguard their own precious lives.

3. While New Land Use Policy (NLUP) continues to be accorded priority, the State government has formulated the ‘New Economic Development Policy (NEDP) - Comprehensive Growth Strategies for Mizoram’ as a long term framework for economic policy and a comprehensive growth strategy for the state economy. The new policy has been formulated keeping in view the paradigm shift in fiscal federalism under Fourteenth Finance Commission, imperative economic and strategic action plan including Act East Policy and evolving economic environment. This policy aims at providing bold, practical and effective strategies to push the economy to higher growth trajectory by enhancing productivity, creating opportunities, improving public finances, improving business environment and improving public service delivery in a sustainable manner.

The new policy lays out a dynamic vision as to how we can collectively achieve a more developed, democratic, cohesive and inclusive economy and society over the medium term in the context of the sustained growth and sets out critical policy interventions.

During this fiscal year, the Annual Action Plan for 2016-17 under NEDP will be rolled out with an allocated amount of Rs. 25000 lakhs. The annual action plan will focus on developmental projects considered to be key growth drivers in various sectors, operation and maintenance of existing infrastructure, strengthening of NLUP through convergence with NEDP and other special projects such as Chief Minister’s Rural Housing Scheme, Improvement of Referral Hospital at Falkawn, Aizawl City Road Junctions Improvement Project and New Secretariat Complex Development.

Policy Agenda for 2016- 17 will include reforms in public financial management, credible skills development policy, climate change adaptation and mitigation action plan, strengthening of official data and statistics and public administrative reforms. We have already announced setting up of Administrative Reforms Committee under the Chairmanship of the Chief Secretary who will submit its report within three months.

4. The Government is aware that agriculture and allied sectors are the backbone of the economy. These sectors continue to be thrust areas and special attention is being given to aid and augment the growth and development of the sectors so that the welfare and prosperity of our farmers are not overlooked. Rice production increased from 60,647 MT during 2014-15 to 62,089 MT during 2015-16 which is an increase of 2.29 percent. Area under Oil palm cultivation increased from 20,377 hectares in 2014-15 to 23,358 hectares during2015-16 which is an increase of 14.63 percent. During 2015-16, 10 new Custom Hiring Centres were established adding to the already existing 47 such Centres. The foundation stone for Horticulture College at Thenzawl was laid by the Hon’ble Union Minister for Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Shri Radha Mohan Singh on 18th June 2016 within the precincts of the College of Veterinary Sciences at Selesih; the academic session of this college is expected to commence this year with an intake of 20 students.

Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS) has been a major problem for our piggery farmers and it is a matter of great concern that they have suffered huge economic losses. For the easy detection, remedial measures, quarantine of animal diseases such as PRRS and others, an Epidemiological Centre at Khatla with the latest equipment is being established at a cost of Rs. 321.5 lakhs, which is expected to be completed next year. The existing School of Veterinary Science at Lungpuizawl in Lunglei is being upgraded to Integrated Veterinary and Animal Husbandry Training Institute keeping in mind, the needs of Mizoram. Under North Eastern Region Textile Promotion Scheme (NERTPS), two projects - Integrated Sericulture Development Project and Intensive Bivoltine Sericulture Development are being implemented while another project - Muga Silk Development Project will be implemented this financial year. There are at least 13540 families involved in fish culture activities and finding sustainable livelihood in the state. Pilot project of Paddy-cum-fish Culture is being implemented in Champhai and Serchhip Districts.

5. The Government recognises that improvement of connectivity; augmenting and strengthening of power distribution networks; exploring all possible options of power generation and provision of potable drinking water are key parameters of economic development.

Mizoram has finally been connected to the Broad Gauge Railway Map of the country. Broad Gauge Goods Train was flagged in at Bairabi Railway Station on 21st March 2016 while the Broad Gauge Passenger Train was flagged out of Bairabi Railway Station on 27th May 2016 by Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi via video conferencing. It is hoped that by 2019, the railway line under construction to reach Sairang will be completed. Existing road networks are being improved upon through Periodic Renewal and there are 79 roads with a total length of 1885.00 kilometres amounting to Rs. 3603.43 crores under various stages of construction while 63 numbers of buildings amounting to Rs. 257.84 crores are also under construction. Work on the World Bank funded Mizoram State Roads-II Regional Transport Connectivity Project and Asian Development Bank assistedSerchhip-Buarpui Roadare making steady progress so is the Kaladan Multi Modal Transit Transport Project (KMMTTP).

60 MW Tuirial Hydro Electric Project is in the final stages of completion and is expected to be commissioned shortly. Statutory clearances for starting construction work for the 210 MW Tuivai Hydro Electric Project is being pursued. 5MW Tlawva Small Hydel Project and 3.5 MW Kawlbem Small Hydel Project are expected to be commissioned next year. During 2015-16, five works for improvement, strengthening and augmenting existing power generation networks and power lines have been completed while 13 other similar works across the state are slated for completion during 2016-17. Under Rural Electricity Distribution Backbone (REDB), existing power distribution infrastructure is being augmented in Kolasib, Bairabi, Vairengte, Thingsulthliah, Mamit, West Phaileng, Zamuang, Champhai, East Lungdar, Tlabung, Hnahthial and Tuipang V while new construction at Rabung, Chekawn, Tawipui North, Mualthuam North, Bualpui NG and Phura is going on in full swing at an total estimated cost of Rs. 73.37 crores and is expected to be completed by July 2017. Renovation and Upgradation of Protection System of 132 kV Sub-stations in Mizoram at an estimated cost of Rs. 26.84 crores has been sanctioned by the Ministry of Power while sanction for Integrated Power Development Scheme (IDPS) for the towns of Vairengte, Kawnpui, Khawhai, Thenzawl, Mamit and Hnahthial at a cost of Rs. 49.16 crores has also been granted by the Ministry in March 2016. Under Deendayal Upadhyaya Gram Jyoti Yojana (DDUGJY), Rural Electrification Corporation (REC) has sanctioned Rs. 30.43 crores for rural electrification works including electrification of 933 BPL households.

The Public Health Engineering Department had targeted 31 habitations to be covered during 2015-16 out of which 28 habitations have been covered. Under NLCPR and NEC funding, Water Supply Schemes at Lawngtlai, Saitual, Hnahthial, Tuipang, Bilkhawthlir, West Phaileng, Bairabi, South Khawbung, Sairang, Aibawk, Sangau, Phuaibuang, Bualpui NG, Lengpui, Darlawn and Vairengte are at various stages of progress, some of them will be commissioned shortly. With funding from NABARD Water Supply Schemes at Kelkang, Lamchhip, Khawruhlian, Serchhip and Ngopa including Solar Water Pumping Station at Buangpui have been executed. Under Swaach Bharat Mission (Gramin) it is hoped that during 2016-17 five Districts - Aizawl, Champhai, Kolasib, Saiha and Serchhip can be declared as Open Defecation Free (ODF) Districts.

6. Education and development of Human Resources is intricately linked to the progress and development of the state. Education remains one of core priority areas and enhancing the quality of education through interventions is an assured commitment of the Government. Recruitment Rules for High School Teachers and Middle School Teachers have been amended, reserving 30 percent and 33½ percent respectively for Science & Mathematics to strengthen these critical areas at the school level. To ensure qualitative changes in Elementary Schools, 9GovernmentPrimary Schools and One Government Middle School have been selected as Model Schools on a pilot basis. Pre-school education has been given due importance for which Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) has been formally started in 66 Primary Schools. To expose young minds to financial literacy, Financial Education has been included as a part of curriculum in 59 High Schools(Government and Non-government) and 61 Middle Schools (Government and Non-government) on a pilot basis.

The School Education Department has tied up with Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) to introduce Connected Learning Initiative (CLIx) in 200 high schools in Mizoram. Mizoram is one of the four States in the country where this joint collaborative effort of Tata Institute of Social Sciences, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)USA and the Tata Trusts is being implemented. CLIx aims to improve the professional and academic prospects of high school students. SSA-Tata Trusts Grassroots Football Development Programme was launched on 23rd June 2016. The spirit of this project which covers 3000 children is not only to promote football but to ensure proper physical, mental and biological growth of children through systematic physical exercise.

The 6 DIETS at Saiha, Lawngtlai, Champhai, Kolasib, Serchhip and Mamit will start a 2 Year Course of Diploma in Elemenatary Education (D. El.Ed.) from the current academic session 2016-17 with an intake of 50 students each after the recent recognition by Eastern Regional Committee (ERC), National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE).

Under the Rashtriya Ucchatar Shiksha Abhiyaan (RUSA), higher education in 21 colleges is being strengthened through infrastructural development, augmentation of existing resources and strengthening of academic environment for students. Construction of Mizoram Engineering College at Pukpui at an estimated cost of Rs. 2600 lakhs has commenced recently in May. Mizoram has been recognized as the star performer of North East and one of the best performing States across the country regarding the implementation of RUSA.

7. The Government is committed to provision, expansion, improvement and strengthening of health care system and health facilities in the State. Upgradation of the existing infrastructure of the State Referral Hospital, Falkawn for establishment of Mizoram Institute of Medical Education & Research (MIMER) is currently underway.

Keeping in view the traffic congestion, Two Wheeler Ambulances has been launched in Aizawl to provide necessary emergency medical services to accident victims as a Pilot Project. Through Mobile Medical Units equipped with diagnostic facilities, healthcare personnel regularly visit remote villages in all the Districts to provide basic healthcare services. The Government is keenly promoting AYUSH system of medicine among the masses, especially in the rural areas. A 50 bedded Integrated AYUSH Hospital which has been constructed at Thenzawl will be inaugurated shortly. Under Rashtriya Bal Swasthya Karyakram (RBSK), 29 RBSK Mobile Health Teams and 2 functional District Early Intervention Centres(DEICs) are regularly conducting health camps in schools to boost the health of school children.

Mission Indradhanush and other immunization programmes are being vigorously implemented with the intention that no child should be left unimmunised. Special attention has been paid to strengthen medical facilities in various Districts and towards this end a number of projects to upgrade District Hospitals are being taken up. Mizoram State Health Care Scheme and Rashtriya Swasthaya Bima Yojana (RSBY) continue to benefit those without medical cover, BPL families and those not in government service. The upgradation of District Hospital Champhai has been completed; Upgradation of District Hospital Saiha in underway while work on the upgradation of the 50 bedded Lawngtlai Hospital will be taken up shortly. The construction of 200 bedded hostel for Mizoram College of Nursing at Falkawn is almost complete.

8. The Government recognizes that development of rural areas and empowerment of people in rural areas is intricately linked to the overall growth and development of the state and the economy. Migration from rural areas to urban areas cannot be stopped but it can be greatly reduced by providing opportunities and livelihoods to the rural populace. It is important that schemes and programmes for rural development and empowerment be carried out by all those involved in it with a missionary zeal. There are 89 Integrated Watershed Management Projects (IWMP) being implemented covering about 300 villages and under it 1,108 Self Help Groups (SHGs) have been formed. Under Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS) one of the most empowering programmes for rural development the daily wages has been revised to Rs. 188 from Rs. 183 with effect from 1st April 2016. Under Indira Awas Yojana (IAY) construction of 391 houses for economically needy in rural areas is being undertaken during the current financial year. To provide sustainable means of livelihood, the Mizoram State Rural Livelihoods Misson (MzSRLM) has made credible inroads in Kolasib and Serchhip Districts. During 2016-17, MzSRLM’s reach will be extended to Khawbung and Champhai Blocks of Champhai District; West Phaileng and Zawlnuam Blocks of Mamit District; Tuipang Block of Saiha District and Sangau Block of Lawngtlai District. Special emphasis for development of border areas is laid through the Border Area Development Programme (BADP).

9. Mizoram is a highly urbanized State with various urban challenges. The Government realizes that development of urban areas is critical for the overall economic development of the State. Towards this, the Government has taken up urban development on various fronts, such as Urban Governance, Urban Infrastructures, Urban Planning, Urban Sanitation Urban Transportation & Mobility, and Urban Poverty Alleviation. The issues facing urbanization have been addressed in various means and forms. In particular, our efforts in Urban Sanitation is expected to enable Mizoram emerge as the ‘Cleanest State in India’ and to make our Cities, Towns and Villages as the cleanest habitations by 2019. We will work towards this end. Likewise, we will continue to work for making our Cities and Towns liveable and make them centres of growth and development. We have also been working towards institutionalization of urban administration. The Aizawl Municipal Council has been upgraded to a Municipal Corporation in October, 2015.

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) assisted North Eastern Region Capital Cities Development Investment Progaramme (NERCCDIP) has been instrumental in taking up critical city infrastructures for Aizawl City which includes Water Supply, Sewerage and Solid Waste Management. After its successful implementation, Aizawl City is expected to achieve 24x7 Water Supply. Proper treatment of sewerage for the eastern part of the City, scientific management of municipal solid wastes for Aizawl City and best practices in septage management will also be covered under the project.

10. Through schemes like National Afforestation Programme (NAP), Intensification of Forest Management (IFM), National Agro-forestry and Bamboo Mission (NABM) and our own Green Mizoram Programme, trees, forests and bamboo plantations are being planted, nurtured, protected and managed. As per the Forest Survey of India publication ‘Indian State of Forest Report 2015’, Mizoram has a tree cover of 91.47 percent of the total area; this achievement is the concerted outcome of these schemes and programmes. During 2015-16, new plantations aggregating to 3135 hectares have been added to the existing plantations through the efforts of the Village Forest Development Committees. Mitigation & adaptation to climate change is imperative and calls for a strategic plan for which State Action Plan on Climate Change has been drafted. Under the Green Climate Fund and Global Environment Facility, projects for mitigation and adaptation are envisaged to be implemented by different sectors.

11. The Government has implemented the much awaited National Food Security Act, 2013 in March 2016 guaranteeing food security to the needy. Under this Act, there are 1,40,017 beneficiary households covering 6,67,482 people. In addition, as envisaged by this Act, there are 1,20,979 Non-NFSA Ration Cards. The End to End Computerization of Targeted Public Distribution System (TPDS) for computerization of Ration Cards has been completed. To strengthen Warehouses and Depots, 17 Department Godowns at a cost of Rs. 9600 lakhs and another 27 godowns at a cost of Rs. 32.68 crores with loan received from NABARD are at various stages of completion. Once completed, 8000 Metric Tonnes of food grains can be stored.

12. A number of initiatives for providing welfare measures to the differently abled persons, social security for the aged, infirm, poor and destitute widows are being carried out. Programmes for the welfare and development of women and children and schemes for the socio-economic rehabilitation for economically and socially handicapped persons have also been undertaken. Drugs abuse, alcoholism, trafficking of women and children and juvenile deliquency which are not just the problems of those affected but of the society are also being dealt with to combat them. To safeguard the rights of women and help them in distress, Universal Women Helpline (181) and One Stop Centre (OSC) have been operationalised in Aizawl and in due course they will be set up in other District Headquarters. Eklavya Model Residential School at Serchhip has started functioning from the current academic session; another four such schools have been sanctioned to be established at Siaha, Lawngtlai, Chawngte and Ngopa.

13. In order to tackle multiple hazards including natural calamities, the Disaster Management & Rehabilitation Department has taken a number of pro-active measures including preparedness, prevention, mitigation and post-disaster management including relief, rehabilitation and reconstruction. State Disaster Response Force (SDRF) has been raised in the 7 Armed Battalions of MAP and IR Police of the state and 747 personnel have undergone training in Basic Disaster Management Course. Mega Mock Drills have been successfully conducted in Aizawl, Lunglei, Champhai, Mamit and Serchhip and Hazard Risk Vulnerability Analysis (HVRA) mapping of Siaha and Lawngtlai Districts has been completed.

14. Various ongoing works and projects aimed at strengthening the existing sports infrastructure are nearing completion such as Taekwondo Hall at Republic Veng, Aizawl, Indoor Stadium at Saron Veng, Aizawl, Swimming Pool at Aquatic Complex,ITI Veng Aizawl, Indoor Hall at Sazaikawn, Lunglei, State Sports Academy at Zobawk, Indoor Stadium at Chanmari, Lunglei Sports Infrastructure Development within Hachek Area, Multipurpose Sports Centre for Northern Region of Mizoram at Darlawn. NEC has accorded administrative and financial approval for the construction of Multipurpose Sports Complex at Aizawl West Joint YMA Field Vaivakawm at an estimated cost of Rs. 1016.88 lakhs, work on the project is expected to start shortly. It is a matter of pride that one of our young girls Miss Lalrintluangi, NCC Cadet from 1 Mizo Bn. has recently become the first woman from Mizoram to have conquered Mount Evereston 21st May,2016.

15. To protect the cultural heritage of Mizoram, Geographical indication/patenting of traditional Mizo puan such as Puanchei, Puandum, Ngotekherh and others are being taken up for legal protection and preservation. More than one lakh important documents and papers have been digitized by the Mizoram State Archives for future reference and record. For development of theatrical arts, Tagore Cultural Complex will soon be constructed at Beraw Tlang at a cost of Rs. 4475 lakhs. Construction of Cultural Heritage Centre at Lunglei for promotion and development of cultural heritage in southern Mizoram has been inaugurated recently.

The Foundation Stone for the mega tourism project ‘Integrated Development of new Eco-Tourism, encompassing Thenzawl, South Zoteand Reiek was laid in June this year at Thenzawl. This Rs. 94.90 crore project, which includes eco-friendly tourism infrastructure, nature centric adventure facilities and an 18 hole golf course will usher in a new era of tourism in the state.

16. Measures are being implemented to develop and strengthen industrial infrastructure in the State while emphasis is being laid on Bamboo Development Sector, Electronics & IT Sector, Handloom & Handicrafts and Skill Development as they can be avenues for employment generation for the educated youths of the state.

17. Skill Development is one of the new areas that needs dedicated attention and sound policy framework needs to be put in place to reap the benefits of our demographic dividend. Towards this end, a comprehensive Skill Development Policy that will address the needs of our youths in tune with the National Skill Qualification Framework (NSFQ) is being drafted and will be finalized shortly.

Mizoram Youth Commission (MYC) has started Coaching Classes in collaboration with reputed institutes who have expertise to guide students preparing for UPSC and SSC Examinations. Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region has sanctioned Rs. 2.51 crores forSkillDevelopment & CapacityBuilding. This project aims to train 1400 students from Mizoram and other North Eastern states in Aviation, Hospitality, Travel & Tourism, Retail Services and IT Enabled Services sectors during the current financial year. This project is being implemented by MYC and the first batch of students are currently undergoing training.

18. Through the application of Information Technology, the government is committed to creating an environment of transparent and accountable Good Governance. Towards this end, The ICT Department is taking steps to provide delivery of Government services to citizens via online and mobile channels. Development of 53 online and mobile services across 19 Departments is progressing smoothly and some of the services are expected to go live very soon.

19. The construction of Trade Facilitation Centre at Tlabung has been completed while a similar Centre is under construction at Lawngtlai; these Centres, once operational will provide impetus to the much awaited Indo-Bangladesh and Indo-Myanmar Trade respectively.

There are many more achievements and success stories besides what I have mentioned today during the last one year. I have covered only a few aspects of the government’s commitments and engagements. This does not mean that the other areas of development will be neglected. On this occasion, I urge all government employees and the administrative machinery to put in their best efforts and realize that they play a key role in taking development and progress to the people but this must be done with a humane and sensitive approach.

Let me also take this opportunity to thank and express my sincere gratitude to all government functionaries, voluntary and civil society organization, the Churches, the media and the people of Mizoram for their full cooperation, trust and support which has been an enabling factor for the government in achieving its goals. I hope that in the years to come, we will see even greater people’s participation in the process of socio-economic development.

I am grateful to the parade contingents, the students and all who have come together here today. Let us resolve and renew our commitment to maintaining the glorious democratic traditions of our great nation and to the all round development of Mizoram.

Speech excerpts from meeting with The Fourteenth Finance Commission

Aizawl 27th February, 2014: ‘It is my pleasure to extend a warm welcome to all of you. We deeply appreciate the trouble and strain you have taken to visit this remote part of the country to listen, first hand, to the problems of your fellow countrymen living in a land locked, far end of the country. However, I am not quite sure as to whether we, with our limited facilities, have been able to make your stay comfortable. Mizos are a traditionally hospitable people who welcome their guests with warmth of their heart and I am sure you have felt it during your short stay. We wish you could spend some more time and visit some other areas to have a real feel of the problems, constraints and potential of growth as also the state’s genuine needs. Whenever you find some time, you are most welcome to visit our state which regrettably is least visited by fellow countrymen from the mainland’.

‘We are proud of our culture and tradition which our people are preserving. The state has manifested a unique cultural harmony with sustained social and communal peace. I assure you that a properly aided prosperity of the state may lead to a demonstrative effect, as the role model of development, for other insurgency afflicted North Eastern States. Mizoram has also the potential to act as the gateway to the South East Asia and a bridge head between two large and fast growing economies - the South East Asian and Indian. It can also be the spearhead for successful implementation of the Centre’s Look East Policy’.

‘There had been a demand for wider propagation of Hindi in Mizoram as the National language. The scheme for teaching Hindi at school level was taken up. Altogether 1305 Hindi teachers were appointed with fund from the HRD Ministry. Services of these teachers have to be regularised. As the Ministry proposes to discontinue funding this scheme from 2017-2018, the state government will have accept this responsibility. Fourteenth Finance Commission may kindly consider awarding the required fund appropriately’.
