BJP ‘Vision Document 2023’ for Mizoram Elections
BJP National President Shri Jagat Prakash Nadda released the BJP ‘Vision Document 2023’ for Mizoram Assembly election on 27 October, 2023. The ‘Vision Document’ promised many important developmental features including Sports Academy with scholarships for aspiring athletes, setting up of Mizoram Olympic Mission and 33 per cent reservation for women in government jobs. Shri Nadda said it is a significant opportunity to outline the Vision for the next five years in Mizoram.
Shri Nadda said many political parties publish their vision documents, mission statements, or manifestos, but frequently, these documents are seen as mere pieces of paper. This is because these documents often lack a genuine sense of commitment, and fulfil their commitments to the people. BJP’s approach to a vision document is marked by thorough research and a strong emphasis on financial aspects. They prioritize creating a well-researched and financially sound document, which distinguishes them from some other political parties. Their approach to the task involves posing questions such as, “How can we achieve our goals? What will be our roadmap to success?” This approach necessitates diligent work, in-depth research, and a rigorous process for developing the vision document. The document is only presented after thoroughly addressing these questions and conducting extensive research.
The BJP National President emphasized that the Northeast region is undergoing a significant positive transformation under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi. Shri JP Nadda observed that the Northeast region, including Mizoram, was once plagued by issues such as strikes, blockades, insurgency, abductions, targeted attacks, and assassinations. This was a common occurrence in the past. However, after the NDA government and Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi took over, we witnessed a significant shift toward peace, prosperity, and development in the region.
He shared the information that a remarkable 80% reduction in insurgency has been achieved in the Northeast region. Additionally, the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) has been lifted in approximately 66% of the affected areas, reflecting a significant step toward peace and normalcy in the region. This demonstrates the improvement in law and order in Mizoram and its neighbouring states.
Hon’ble National President has emphasized that the BJP’s Act East Policy has had a transformative impact on the Northeast region. Notably, 1,150 projects with a combined worth of 15,867 crore have been sanctioned for the development of the Northeast. In the past nine years, a budget allocation of 3.37 lakh crore has been made for various development initiatives.
Shri Nadda concluded by emphasizing that the BJP is dedicated to the holistic development of Mizoram and has provided substantial financial support for the people of Mizoram. Mainstreaming has been the approach to progress in this direction. He once again requests the people of Mizoram to support the Bharatiya Janata Party and its candidate.
