“Statehood Day greetings to the citizens of Arunachal Pradesh. May the state scale new heights of development…,” Modi said in a tweet.
“On their Statehood Day, my greetings to the people of Mizoram. I pray that Mizoram progresses immensely in the years to come,” he said in another tweet.
While Arunachal Pradesh was granted statehood on this day in 1987, Mizoram was declared a state in 1972.
