He added, "Mizoram is facing a financial crisis and the financial condition is very bad. We are going to inherit from the outgoing government. In spite of this, we are going to honour our commitment.

Lalduhoma further emphasised that we are friends of farmers and we have to give them that top priority and said, "We declared the minimum price and we are going to start now. Right now, we are going to go through the process of buying these four items. In spite of all the constraints we are facing, this is our commitment to the people and we are going to honour it. This is our first priority;." 

Lalduhoma said that there will be consolidation in finance referring to financial reform in the state. He said that a resource mobilization team comprising the expert members will be formed, that will oversea the austerity measures, investment measures, manpower assessment and more.

Lalduhoma said, "After that, our main priority will be anti-corruption measures and for that, we are going to give general consent to the CBI as soon as possible. The law will take its own course. I am not in favour of witch hunting. We will start from now with the new government to defy corruption," reported ANI.
