The decision to allocate a housing plot to Lalrinnunga was already approved by the state Cabinet after Jeremy won gold medal at the Commonwealth Games 2022.

Royte expressed his gratitude to the land revenue and settlement department and the local council of Ainawn Veng, where Lalrinnunga resides, for facilitating the swift process of land allotment.

The Mizoram government has implemented a comprehensive awards system for athletes at various levels, including national, international, and Olympic competitions. Minister Royte extended his best wishes to Lalrinnunga as he continues his pursuit for an Olympic gold medal.
