Mizoram Celebrates 37th State Day with Governor Commending Mizo Peace Accord

In Mizoram, the 37th State Day is being celebrated with patriotic fervour and enthusiasm all across the state. The state-level celebration was held at Vanapa Hall in the heart of Aizawl city.

Speaking on the occasion, Governor Dr Hari Babu Kambhampati hailed the historic ‘Mizo Peace Accord’ signed on June 30, 1986 as a shining example of how dialogue and reconciliation pave the way for lasting peace and prosperity.

Dr Kambhampati said that Mizoram serves as a beacon of hope, demonstrating that even in the midst of adversity, peace is possible. He said that with peace as a catalyst for development, Mizoram is on the right track for accelerated progress and prosperity.

Chief Minister Lalduhoma said that Mizoram is 25 years behind other states of India in terms of development and progress. He therefore called upon the people of the state to walk extra miles for ushering fast-track development in the state. He cautioned that there should not be room for mistake in achieving the goal and vision of development.

In the celebration at Lammual in Aizawl, the “State Day” was celebrated as “State Day of Prayer”.

For the first time, Chief Minister Lalduhoma laid a wreath at the Assam Rifles’ War Memorial as part of the “State Day” celebration - a tribute to the fallen heroes of Mizoram who laid their life for the nation.

Meanwhile, President Droupadi Murmu, Vice President Jagdeep Dhankar, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah and several leaders have greeted the people of Mizoram on the occasion of "State Day".

In a social media post, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that India is very proud of Mizoram's unique cultural tapestry, its rich beauty and the warm-hearted spirit of its people. The Mizo culture is very inspiring, embodying a blend of tradition and harmony, said the Prime Minister.

Mizoram became the 23rd State of the India Union on February 20, 1987 after witnessing two-decades of insurgency.
