NEW DELHI, Feb 1 (PTI) - Mizoram Chief Minister Lal Thanhawala today charged the Centre with meting out injustice to his state by "depriving funds" under security-related expenditure.
The Centre tends to take the peaceful situation in the state for granted, he told the conference of chief ministers on internal security here.
"Since my state has devoted a large portion of its meagre resources to the maintenance of internal security at the expense of curtailing other development activities, I feel that it will be a mistake for the government of India if the genuine requests for fund remain unattended.
"There is a feeling among the general public that the government of India tends to take the peaceful situation of the state for granted," he said.
The contributions made by Mizoram in preserving peace and security resulted in heavy expenditure which could have been spent for development purposes.
