Aizawl, June 22 NNN : Mizoram Co-operative Society minister J.H. Rothuama said co-operation, by its very name itself, indicates unity and working together. “When we work together, we can do such great things which are impossible for an individual and a single family themselves. Therefore, Co-operative Society has been an important agent which often betters the economic condition in developed countries. Besides, the monetary assistance that we get from the government, creating opportunity for others with self-dependency shall always be our main objective,” the minister said.
J.H Rothuama was saying this while gracing the 25th General Assembly of the Mizoram State Co-operative Union (MSCU) as chief guest of the occasion which was held at Archives Hall, Babu Tlang, Aizawl.
The minister released the special issue of Co-operative Magazine ‘Tlangau’ during the celebration.
The minister then said that that there is the need to provide more instructions to the societies under MSCU regarding financial management. “A large number of cultivators in Mizoram, despite of their perseverance and hard work, lack the knowledge of good strategy so as to yield good result. Therefore, to give them guidelines is the responsibility of the cooperative societies”, the minister said. The Mizoram government is also taking steps in the same line, and also, as promised before the assembly election, steps are being taken for setting up of Co-operative Development Council, he added.
