“Best wishes to the people of Arunachal Pradesh on their Statehood Day. This state is synonymous with patriotism and unwavering commitment to national progress. Praying for Arunachal Pradesh’s continuous growth,” Modi said in his tweet.

The prime minister said Mizoram has excelled in many spheres and contributed to India’s growth. “On the occasion of their Statehood Day, greetings to the wonderful people of Mizoram. We are proud of the rich culture of this state. Those belonging to Mizoram have excelled in many spheres and contributed to India’s growth. Praying for Mizoram’s development in the coming years,” he said in another tweet.

Mizoram was previously part of Assam until 1972, when it was carved out as a Union Territory. It became the 23rd state of India, a step above Union Territory, on February 20, 1987, with the Fifty-Third Amendment of the Indian Constitution.

Arunachal Pradesh which literally means ‘land of dawn-lit mountains’ is the Northeastern-most state of the country on the edge of the Himalayas. It is the largest of the Seven Sister states of Northeast.
