Aizawl (mizonews.net): Mizoram Chief Minister Lalthanhawla toeing the line of some claims that the Mizo tribes have blood connection with the Israelis said that the community “are God’s chosen people”.
“The Mizos are God’s favoured one which should be known by all and accordingly we are to spread His gospel everewhere, and we should know that we are serving God in whatever works we do. We should work faithfully and fear Him. As long as we preach the Gospel, we can overcome fear,” Lalthanhawla said while addressing the silver jubilee celebration of Zonuam YMA Branch on Thursday at Zonuam.
The Chief Minister also inaugurated a monument erected in commemoration of the Silver Jubilee of the organisation.
Lauding the social organisation efforts in preservation of forest, the Chief Minister said: “YMA has good cooperation with the state government in preserving the forest, flora and fauna, and others in Mizoram.”
Speaking on the issue of Mizo integrity, Lalthanhawla said Mizos need to “stand united”. ”Some people among the Mizos who develop communal feelings are against the interest of Mizos as well as the state government. Therefore, in the issue of nationalism, we (YMA & State government) need to cooperate. We need to stand united against those who want to create division,” he said.
Speaking about corruption, Lalthanhawla said that corruption does not only mean utilising government’s money in the wrong way, but “laziness, negligence and insincerity are also signs of corruption.”
The villagers of Zonuam asked the Chief Minister the need for a Primary School to which Lalthanhawla said he would recommend the proposal to Education Minister Lalsawta.
Formed on 23. 6.1987, Zonuam YMA Branch presently has 1460 YMA members.
Preparations for the event had began in 2008 and to mark the Silver Jubilee year the branch has organised blood donation, section sports, singing competition and essay competition among others.
