Aizawl: Union Minister of State for External Affairs Meenakshi Lekhi on Monday called on Mizoram Governor Dr. Hari Babu Kambhampati at the Raj Bhavan in Aizawl, Raj Bhavan sources said.
Lekhi arrived in Aizawl on Monday on a two-day visit to the northeastern state.
During the meeting, the two discussed a wide range of issues, especially important subjects under the purview of the Ministry of External Affairs (MHA) concerning Mizoram, which shares international boundaries with Bangladesh and Myanmar.
Over the past four years, EastMojo revolutionised the coverage of Northeast India through our sharp, impactful, and unbiased overage. And we are not saying this: you, our readers, say so about us. Thanks to you, we have become Northeast India’s largest, independent, multimedia digital news platform.
Now, we need your help to sustain what you started.
We are fiercely protective of our ‘independent’ status and would like to remain so: it helps us provide quality journalism free from biases and agendas. From travelling to the remotest regions to cover various issues to paying local reporters honest wages to encourage them, we spend our money on where it matters.
Now, we seek your support in remaining truly independent, unbiased, and objective. We want to show the world that it is possible to cover issues that matter to the people without asking for corporate and/or government support. We can do it without them; we cannot do it without you.
Support independent journalism, subscribe to EastMojo.
Lekhi laid emphasis on the need for more investment in Mizoram since the northeastern state will soon become the gateway to the east, the sources said.
Kaladan Multi-Modal Transit Transport Project (KMMTTP), Indo-Myanmar Border Trade at Zokhawthar, Necropolis at Vangchhia Village, and other subjects were discussed at the meeting, it said.
Taking to Twitter, the union minister said, “Got a glimpse of the vibrant culture of Mizoram at the Cultural Evening organised by the State Art and Culture Department in Aizawl. Happy to see the young ones take pride in their culture.”
