Aizawl (mizonews.net): “If we go on hiring/importing more and more workers from our nearby/neighbouring states, such (hired) people will add to our problems. Therefore, we need to prepare ourselves to be worth-hiring (for work),” Lok Sabha MP Pu CL Ruala said.
Ruala said this during a meeting of Serchhip District Level Vigilance and Monitoring Committee yesterday. He said that he don’t like the way the Mizos worked for the 100 days jobs, and said it destroys the work culture.
“And, if it goes on like this the number of labourers worth-hiring will become lesser and lesser,” he opined.
He said that it was high time “we need to educate ourselves to have the courage not to envy and own a job card.”

CL Ruala also mentions that changes were often made in the waiting list of the beneficiaries of IAY while advising the officials to ensure selections are done properly.
Regarding Computerization of Land Records, he also said, “While we are preparing to bring progress for the state this will become more and more important; and, therefore, asked the concerned department should begin its work at the earliest.”
