mizo accord a shining example-ram nath
AIZAWL, Nov 30: President Ram Nath Kovind, while addressing a special session of the Mizoram Assembly on Thursday, called the Mizo Accord of 1986 as a ‘shining example all over the world’. The signing, implementation and adherence to the Mizo Accord of 1986 is still regarded as a shining example all over the world. It truly is a miracle in the way in which it ended an insurgency situation and a conflict that had divided our country and Mizo society itself, he said. 

The President noted that 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 Pu Lal Thanhawla, who is of course the Chief Minister today as well, he said. The President added that he would also like to mention another stalwart of Mizoram, former chief minister Brigadier T Sailo. 

Mizoram and India owe these nation builders so much, he said. The President said that Mizoram stands out for its very mature and dignified political culture. The Assembly of Mizoram is the true embodiment of Mizoram’s political culture as well as of the will and aspirations of the people of the State. He congratulated the Assembly of Mizoram over the fact that in its 45-year history, it has established a reputation for smooth conduct of business. He stated that the behaviour and participation of its members has conformed to the highest standards. This Assembly is a role model for our democracy and for how a legislative House should function. The President appreciated that the sense of honour and dignity that one sees in public life in Mizoram is heart-warming. It is also typical of this State’s rich society. After addressing the special Assembly, the President left for Nagaland. -Assam Tribune
