President Droupadi Murmu, while addressing the members of Mizoram Legislative Assembly on Friday (November 4) during her visit to Aizawl as a part of her whirlwind tour to Northeast India covering three states, Nagaland, Mizoram and Sikkim, said the topography of the hilly region poses special challenges for development; yet Mizoram has done remarkably well on all parameters, especially when it comes to human development.

Stressing on education and healthcare as twin pillars of good governance, the President said policymakers and administrators have rightly stressed on improving facilities for the two sectors.

While stressing the importance of improving educational and healthcare, she also rightly pointed out that connectivity is the biggest factor in realising the potential of such a region. She pointed out that the development of village roads, highways and bridges not only helps in meeting the education and healthcare goals of states, but also unleashes economic opportunities for all.

The points that the President emphasised upon on her maiden official visit to Mizoram, no doubt, is the aspiration of the people of all other developing states, including Manipur. People in Manipur too, particularly in rural areas and hill areas, have long been dreaming of good village roads, highways and bridges, easy accessibility to education and healthcare facilities. Their hopes undying, people have been pinning their hopes on the present government to fulfil their basic rightful requirement.

It may be noted that the President also said that this is the era of new technology which has been put to use to serve people more effectively. She also said the development of the entire Northeast region is significant for the nation to scale greater heights.

Considering the fact and pondering upon the President's remarks, it is hoped that the Manipur government would also make maximum use of the available new technology to bring about the much awaited improved development in all sectors across the state, to serve the people more effectively.

Nothing is impossible. No doubt, with the best efforts made, Manipur can evolve into the most developed or fastest growing state in the Northeast, if not beyond. Meanwhile, we – as individual citizens, policymakers, lawmakers or administrators – must strive at our level best to do our bit for the overall development and growth of beloved Sana Leibak Manipur. This way, the state can make great contributions towards the growth and progress of the country–a priceless heritage that both the present and future generations could take pride in.
