Aizawl: Mizoram deputy chief minister Tawnluia on Tuesday claimed that over 30 projects are being executed under the Smart City Mission.
Tawnluia, who holds different portfolios, including Public Health Engineer and Urban Development and Poverty Alleviation (UD&PA), laid the foundation stone for a multipurpose ground at Aizawl’s Zarkawt area on Tuesday.
The state government was paralyzed and many projects under the Smart City Mission have been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Despite such hurdles, over 30 projects are being implemented under the smart city mission and 3 of them have been completed,” Tawnluia said.
10 more projects, including Laldenga Cultural Centre, are in the pipeline, he said.
According to the deputy chief minister, Union Home Minister Amit Shah would lay the foundation stone for the proposed cultural centre. He said that Laldenga Cultural Centre would be constructed at the Assam Rifles ground area in Aizawl.
During a meeting with chief minister Zoramthanga in Delhi on Tuesday, Shah told the former that he will inaugurate the Assam Rifles complex at Zokhawsang near Aizawl and lay the foundation stone of Laldenga Cultural Centre on April 1.
