On this historic and glorious day in the annals of our great country – the 70th Independence Day, I extend my warm greetings to the people of Mizoram and to all the citizens of our great nation. It was on this day sixty-nine years ago, that we emerged from the shadows of domination, the yokes of oppression and injustice into a sovereign nation, standing on our own feet and inspiring others to walk the path to self determination and independence.
Let us recall with pride and honour, the selfless sacrifices of the leaders of our Freedom Struggle such as Mahatma Gandhi, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Maulana Abul Kalam Azad and other such luminaries and enlightened minds; let us also remember the unsung stories of each and every brave hearted foot-soldier of our epic struggle and pay homage to the leaders and all those who contributed to our Freedom. It is because of their sacrifice that we can bask in the glory of democracy today. On this momentous occasion, let us all rededicate ourselves to the ideals on which our nation was founded and reflect upon the values and principles on which our nation is based. Let this day be not just a symbolic day but let it be, a day that every Indian across the globe can take pride and commit to making our nation greater in the global world.
As we look into the future with hope, I would like to share with you some of the achievements and progress of the Government of Mizoram during the last one year.
1. The maintenance of law and order, the safety and security of the people and the well being and happiness of the people of Mizoram remains a matter of paramount importance for the government. During the last one year, I am happy that there has been no major law and order breakdown. In this regard, I express my gratitude to civil society and voluntary organizations for their unstinting support to law enforcement agencies in our efforts to maintain our status as one of the most peaceful states in the country and commend the efforts of law enforcement agencies. This year is significant for another reason; it is the 30th Anniversary of the signing of the Memorandum of Settlement, known as the Mizoram Peace Accord. In the last thirty years much has been achieved yet there is still more to be done. On this day, I call upon the people of Mizoram to rededicate themselves to the cause of peace and tranquility so that Mizoram can be an example for others to emulate.
A number of infrastructure development projects of Mizoram Police are underway and some will be completed very soon. Mizoram Police has achieved the highest rate of conviction per trial under Indian Penal Code for two consecutive years in 2013 and 2014 as per data compiled by the Bureau of Police Reforms & Development (BPR&D). CCTNS Networks linking all Police Stations is now in the final stages of completion while Aizawl City Surveillance Project has been successfully launched and is operational while the second phase covering all the important junctions ofAizawlCityis now currently underway. All Police Stations are regularly entering CCTNS data either online or offline and 3887 police personnel have been trained to use this system efficiently. Computerised Automated Synon Cipher System was introduced at Mizoram Police Radio Organization in May 2016 at five Cipher Stations (Aizawl, Lunglei, Kolasib, Mamit and Champhai). For the overall upliftment of Justice Delivery System in the state and in fulfillment of its commitment, the Government has upgraded Forensic Science Laboratory into a full-fledged Directorate under the Home Department.
2. NLUP continues to have a strong impact and it has contributed generously towards registering high rate of growth which is highlighted in Economic Survey, 2014-15. NLUP has also helped sustain economic growth for the last four consecutive years. The same Economic Survey also reflected reduction of area under Jhum cultivation by over 21 percent along with other improved basic indicators which are largely influenced by the positive impact of NLUP. Implementation of NLUP has been going on in full swing to complete spill-over works, especially for the 3rd and 4th Phase NLUP beneficiaries.
Specialized agencies which are part of the UN Joint Initiative Project have started their work. Through the collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the Consultants of UNDP and the Market Task Force have taken up comprehensive field survey within and outside Mizoram to design suitable model for marketing, keeping in view best practices adopted in different parts of the world. Under Food & Agricultural Organization (FAO), applied research on new strategy for cultivation in hill slopes areas called Mizoram Sloping Agricultural Land Technology (MiSALT) has made steady progress and it is expected that this will bring about transformation in cultivation on hill slope areas. United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) has formulated a pilot project for promotion of bamboo based industries while the South Asia Bamboo Foundation (SABF) has prepared a project for establishment ofAgarbatiPark. Under International Labour Organization (ILO), a Skill-gap Assessment has been made; this is the first indepth study of employment problem, under employment and skill development needs in Mizoram.
NLUP Implementing Board has initiated measures for marketing, including export of ginger and turmeric by implementing Pack House Project sanctioned by Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA). Through this initiative, substantial quantity of turmeric and ginger will be exported.
In addition, NLUP Implementing Board evinced the help of theUniversityofMinnesota, who are taking up a collaborative research and compilation of edible mushrooms of Mizoram alongwithMizoramUniversityas a partner. By early 2017, it is expected that the list of edible and non-edible mushrooms can be finalised after detailed DNA and other testing; this can help people differentiate varieties and help them to safeguard their own precious lives.
3. While New Land Use Policy (NLUP) continues to be accorded priority, the State government has formulated the ‘New Economic Development Policy (NEDP) - Comprehensive Growth Strategies for Mizoram’ as a long term framework for economic policy and a comprehensive growth strategy for the state economy. The new policy has been formulated keeping in view the paradigm shift in fiscal federalism under Fourteenth Finance Commission, imperative economic and strategic action plan including Act East Policy and evolving economic environment. This policy aims at providing bold, practical and effective strategies to push the economy to higher growth trajectory by enhancing productivity, creating opportunities, improving public finances, improving business environment and improving public service delivery in a sustainable manner.
The new policy lays out a dynamic vision as to how we can collectively achieve a more developed, democratic, cohesive and inclusive economy and society over the medium term in the context of the sustained growth and sets out critical policy interventions.
During this fiscal year, the Annual Action Plan for 2016-17 under NEDP will be rolled out with an allocated amount of Rs. 25000 lakhs. The annual action plan will focus on developmental projects considered to be key growth drivers in various sectors, operation and maintenance of existing infrastructure, strengthening of NLUP through convergence with NEDP and other special projects such as Chief Minister’s Rural Housing Scheme, Improvement of Referral Hospital at Falkawn, Aizawl City Road Junctions Improvement Project and New Secretariat Complex Development.
Policy Agenda for 2016- 17 will include reforms in public financial management, credible skills development policy, climate change adaptation and mitigation action plan, strengthening of official data and statistics and public administrative reforms. We have already announced setting up of Administrative Reforms Committee under the Chairmanship of the Chief Secretary who will submit its report within three months.
