Calling all states in the Northeast as beautiful and full of greenery, EC Mehdi highlighted the vision of the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, to celebrate the diverse cultures of India and provide a platform to become acquainted with cultures of different states/UTs of the country.

He also appreciated paramilitary/armed forces personnel from different parts of the country for performing their duties with full dedication by braving the challenging conditions to guard the borders from the enemy forces.

He informed about the cultural troupes comprising students sent to perform at Raj Bhawans/Raj Niwas across Ladakh on UT Ladakh’s Foundation Day last year. Mehdi expressed hope to see more development in Ladakh along with Arunachal and Mizoram.
