SILCHAR, April 3 � Expressing concerns over the recent atrocities on non-Mizo traders by the local organisations like MZP, MTP etc., the Citizens� Rights Preservation Committee, Assam has urged upon the Governor of Mizoram to initiate steps to restore peace and provide security to the traders.

In a memorandum to the Governor of Mizoram, Bidhayak Purakyastha, general secretary of CRPC, Assam said the committee severely condemns the violence on the non-Mizo traders. �The traders are harassed by the local organisations in Aizwal whereas they are working with valid trade license,� Purakyastha claimed.

On the other hand, the All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) Cachar district committee and Amora Banglee, State committee has also condemned the violent behavior towards the traders in Aizwal. Sadhan Purakystha, secretary of Amora Banglee said that the local bodies in Aizwal are forcibly summoning the non-Mizo traders for checking their trade documents and are assaulting them. �It is shameful to learn that the traders are being administered electric shocks which is inhuman and is a gross violation of Article 19 (1) off the Constitution of India. He urged the Governor�s intervention to put an end to this practice. Purakyastha said that if the local Mizo organisations do not stop harassing the non-Mizo trader, particularly Bengali traders, people might restrict movement of goods from Barak Valley into the State.
