Mizoram rural development minister and Mizo National Front (MNF) adviser Lalruatkima on Thursday said the government is working hard to implement the state’s flagship programme- Socio-Economic Development Policy (SEDP).
Addressing a function at Aizawl’s Dinthar locality, Lalruatkima said that the state government is making all-out efforts for developing the state and would implement the flagship programme from the new financial year.
“The government is established by the people and is trying its best to develop the state. The state develops because of the people and the government is making massive efforts to implement the SEDP,” the minister said.
He expressed hope that the SEDP will benefit the people to uplift them economically to achieve sustainable development in the state.
The Aizawl West-II assembly constituency MLA also distributed sewing machines to 103 beneficiaries within his constituency on Thursday.
The SEDP is the flagship programme of the ruling Mizo National Front (MNF), which aims at bringing sustainable development by accelerating progress in key sectors through exploration and judicious use of resources and maintaining equality and equity among the citizens.
Under this policy, the government is planning to provide monetary assistance to the tune of not less than Rs. 3 lakh to beneficiaries to start projects (trades) of their choice for sustainable development and the economic uplift of household families.
The state government has allocated Rs 700 crore for implementing the state flagship programme in the 2022-2023 annual budget. Of the Rs 700, Rs 350 crore has been earmarked exclusively for family development schemes.
