AIZAWL, Nov 29: President Ram Nath Kovind arrived here this afternoon on his maiden visit to Mizoram after assuming office. From Lengpui Airport, the President was flown to Thuampui Helipad, on the northern part of the city in an Indian Air Force helicopter, where he was received by State Governor Lt Gen Nirbhay Sharma (rtd), Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla and his Cabinet colleagues, and top officials. The city’s narrow main road from Thuampui Helipad to Raj Bhavan was cleared off vehicles to allow free movement of the President’s convoy. 

Later, at Raj Bhavan’s Durbar Hall, the President inaugurated a Housing Complex for Economically Weaker Section, constructed under Basic Service to Urban Poor (BSUP) scheme. Thereafter, he met the Governor, Chief Minister and the Council of Ministers. A cultural programme was organised for the President later in the evening. The President is scheduled to visit PC Girls School in Aizawl on Thursday morning, before interacting with leaders of leading civil society organisations. At 11 am, he will address members of the State Assembly. 

Meanwhile, PRISM party has alleged today that the housing complex for economically weaker section that the President was made to inaugurate is yet to be completed. It is a shame that Mizoram Government let the President inaugurate a project which has not been completed. It is an attempt to cover up its inefficiency before the Centre, PRISM said in a statement. -Assam Tribune
