Laying out priorities of the first 100 days, Chief Minister Lalduhoma said that he would pursue a holistic approach for the overall development of Mizoram. Speaking to the media after the Swearing-in Ceremony at Raj Bhawan, Lalduhoma said that his Government would work for the welfare and empowerment of the farmers.

Announcing a 12 points priority, he said that the Government would extend all possible assistance to the farmers. The Chief Minister said that his Government would fix minimum prices for local products and assured that the Government would procure local products such as Ginger, Turmeric, Chilli and Broomsticks to ensure higher income return for the farmers.
 
Lalduhoma further said that the new budget will be in tune with the policy of the ZPM. The Chief Minister said that the next fiscal will be declared as a year of consolidation.
