Biate, June 15, 2024 – The Biate Branch of the Young Mizo Association (YMA) celebrated YMA Day 2024 at the Zialung Community Hall today, joining the rest of the state in the festivities. Chief Minister Lalduhoma graced the event with his presence.

Chief Minister Pu Lalduhoma expressed his delight at being invited to the function in Biate, a town notable for producing 41 Pastors, 7 MLAs, and 1 MP.

In his address, the Chief Minister highlighted various societal challenges. He emphasized the crucial role of YMA members in tackling these issues to prevent them from undermining the country and nation. "Water and soil management systems need to be improved," he stated, noting the concerning rise in early deaths, divorce, incurable diseases, cancer, and vices. He also voiced his concern over the increasing number of young people engaging in detrimental activities and lamented the erosion of traditional Mizo values. He urged every YMA member to address these challenges.

During the event, Chief Minister Lalduhoma made a donation of Rs. 3,00,000 to the Biate Branch YMA for their homeless shelter project. He assured that he would follow up on their other needs as soon as possible. The Chief Minister was accompanied by JK Dawngzuala, Chairman of ZIDCO.
