The conference was jointly inaugurated by Shri Rorelliana, Shri Lalchanglliana and Advocate Manavi Aizwal with a hammer on dharma ghanta and a traditional song.

A total of 10 delegates from Burma and 6 from Manipur also attended the conference. Advocate Manavi Aizwal, secretary of the organisation, presented annual report at the conference.
The religious leaders present on the occasion appealed to the community members to work for the preservation of Mizo culture which is facing a threat from the church in Mizoram. “Work for peace, God is everywhere and in all creatures. Educate all girls, because it is the root of our culture,” they said.
