Aizawl, March 07 2013:
Mizoram chief minister Lal Thanhawla said the smaller communities in India do not have to fear of being annihilated by the majority communities as the Constitution of India is strong enough to protect the minority communities.
Lal Thanhawla said this while strongly stressing for the need to maintain communal harmony at all cost.
The chief minister of Mizoram was inaugurating the Annexe building of Chakma House located at Hunthar Veng in Aizawl today.
Addressing the inauguration function held in front of the building, Lal Thanhawla said that different communities are living equally under the strong India democracy.
"We the minority communities are even protected under the Constitution of India such that we the indigenous people have equal rights, privilege and responsibility.
Therefore, to work on ethnic line or to think only for a particular community will prevent the way to our progress," Lal Thanhawla said.
Lal Thanhawla also highlighted several development schemes carried out by the DONER Ministry for the progress of Chakma Autonomous District Council (CADC) and advised the Chakma community in Mizoram to work for the good of the state.
The newly constructed Chakma House Annexe building costs Rs.1,44,70,635.Four-storeyed, the building consists of 13 rooms, including 4 VIP rooms, and is estimated to accommodate 20 guests at a time.
