Along with the rest of the country, a function was organised at the SAD Conference Hall at MINECO to observe the 11th National Voters’ Day, which was graced by the Chief Secretary Pu Lalnunmawia Chuaungo.

Speaking on the occasion, the Chief Secretary mentioned that unlike other countries where universal adult franchise was a long struggle, the Constitution of India guaranteed citizens the right to vote as soon as the country became a republic. This, he said, was a hallmark of Indian democracy. He outlined the importance of voting in the electoral process and said that in a democracy every vote counts and voters must exercise their franchise to be a part of the nation building process. He handed over EPICs to 10 newly enrolled young voters to mark the observation of NVD 2021.

Pu R. Lalramnghaka, DC and District Electoral Officer, Aizawl District in his speech highlighted the theme of this year’s NVD ‘Making Our Voters Empowered, Vigilant, Safe and Informed’.  The NVD pledge was taken by all the attendees. Senior government officials, representatives of various NGOs and students attended the programme.
