President Murmu to begin 4-day visit to Nagaland, Mizoram, Sikkim today

Kohima/Aizawl/Gangtok: Officials have announced that President Droupadi Murmu will undertake a four-day tour of the northeastern regions of Sikkim, Nagaland, and Mizoram on Wednesday.

She will inaugurate and set the foundation for various initiatives on her first trip to these states after taking office.

Murmu will first reach Kohima, the Nagaland capital, on Wednesday and the state government will accord her a civic reception.

The President will virtually inaugurate newly constructed government schools, Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY) roads, and Kohima Super Market, officials said.

On Thursday, the President will pay her respects at the Kohima War Cemetery and visit Kigwema, one of the oldest villages inhabited by people of the Angami tribe, located about 15 km from the state capital. She will interact with the village council members there and also members of self-help groups.

Murmu, on the same day, will grace the 17th convocation of the Mizoram University in Aizawl and inaugurate various education-related projects in the state.

She will also attend a civic reception to be hosted by the Mizoram government in her honour at the Raj Bhavan in Aizawl.

The President will address the members of the Mizoram Legislative Assembly at Aizawl on Friday.

Murmu will start her two-day visit to Sikkim from November 4 and will be accorded a civic reception in the Himalayan state, the officials said.

She will virtually inaugurate Atal Setu at Rangpo on Sevoke-Gangtok road, a two-lane Chisopani traffic tunnel in East Sikkim and VC Ganju Lama Girls Hostel in Ravongla in South Sikkim.

Murmu will also lay the foundation stone for projects such as the National Institute of Technology (NIT) at Khamdong in East Sikkim, the widening and improvement of a road from Namchi to Birdhang connecting West to South districts, district hospital at Singtam and World Renewal Spiritual Brahmkumari's Centre at Namchi in South Sikkim.

The President will interact with women achievers at Ravongla at an event on November 5 before flying to Bagdogra airport in neighbouring West Bengal on the way back to New Delhi, the officials added.

Murmu visited Tripura and Assam in the northeastern region last month.
