President Kovind addresses special session of the Mizoram Legislative Assembly
Addressing the special session of the Mizoram Legislative Assembly on November 30 in Aizawl, President Ram Nath Kovind said that Mizoram stands out for a very mature and dignified political culture as well as of the will and aspirations of the people of the state, stated a press release.

The president commended the Assembly of Mizoram for its smooth conduct of business and congratulated the members for conforming to the highest standards of behaviour and conduct.

He was of the view that the Assembly of Mizoram was a role model for our democracy and had shown the way how a legislative House should function.

He noted, "All political stake-holders as well as civil society groups – including the Church and Church-affiliated groups, women's groups and other non-governmental organisations – have got together to create an atmosphere for peace and development in Mizoram. The Accord and its legacy represent one of the greatest successes in India's long history. One must recall the enlightened and far-sighted leadership of Pu Laldenga, as well as the efforts and generosity of spirit of Pu Lal Thanhawla, who is of course the Chief Minister today as well. And here I would also like to mention another stalwart of Mizoram, the respected Brigadier T. Sailo. Our Mizoram and our India owe these nation builders so much."

The President said that for centuries, South Asia and Southeast Asia have been perceived as a composite trading region, with cultural similarities as well. Mizoram is right at the centre of this process and of this area. Mizoram's geography can be its biggest asset – and the government of India is working to ensure just that, added the release.
