Earlier, a 42-members Cultural Team from Chakma Autonomous District Council led by Dg. Tribanko Chakma had reached Rajiv Nagar to participate and showcase cultural items during the event which is the first of its kind in Mizoram.
On 4th March, 2023 a 6-member team from Rajiv Nagar convened a meeting with all the Heads of Departments, CADC and NGO leaders at Kamalanagar with the proposal to organise the 1st State-Level Bizu Miloni at Rajiv Nagar, a culturally rich village in Mamit District of north-west Mizoram where the proposal was unanimously accepted as the General Election to Chakma Autonomous District Council is due in May this year due to which the program could not be held within CADC.
Bizu Miloni programme will be a 3-day long celebration of Bizu festival that commemorates the commencement of a new year of the Chakmas. It is proposed that every year, henceforth the Bizu Miloni programme will be celebrated across the Chakma areas in Mizoram and the venue of the programme shall be rotated within this area.
Delegates from Tripura as well as the Chakma villages within Mizoram will also be attending the program as it will not only mark the celebration of Bizu festival at state level but also act as a means to foster brotherhood among the Chakmas in India.
