The New Land Use Policy (NLUP), which was designed to transform the State economy focussing on inclusive growth and poverty alleviation, was gathering momentum in Mizoram, State Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla said on Monday.
In his Independence day speech at the Assam Rifles ground here after unfurling the tricolour, Lal Thanhawla said, “In order to ensure proper planning and quality in the project implementation, preparation of detail land use plans for all the villages and preparation of resources ATLAS providing geo-agronomic database through the application of remote sensing have been undertaken.”
With this Mizoram would be among the few states in the country to prepare a comprehensive and detail land use planning, he said.
The Chief Minister also claimed that a peaceful atmosphere was prevailing in the State due to the concerted efforts of efficient law enforcing agencies, NGOs, churches, media and the general public.
Although no major law and order problems were reported during the past year, the economic offences wing and the anti-human trafficking unit were set up in the police department to meet the emerging challenges, he said.
Congratulating the people on the celebrations of the 25th year of the historic Mizo Peace Accord this year, he appealed to the people to continue to strive for maintenance of a free wholesome and coherent society.
In the education sector, the Chief Minister made a special mention of the commencement of classes in the NIT Mizoram and the IIMC Mizoram from July and August respectively.
