Mizo students to protest on Friday over border issue

By Newmai News

AIZAWL, July 17 - Mizoram�s apex student body, Mizo Zirlai Pawl (MZP), will protest on Friday after the Mizoram Government failed to make the Assam Forest department officials vacate from a �disputed land� near Lailapoor along the inter-State border.

MZP president L Ramdinliana Renthlei said that Assam Forest department had recently occupied an old security forces building near Vairengte or Lailapoor along the National Highway-54 on the Mizoram-Assam border, �breaching� the status quo.

He said that they had appealed to the State Government to make the Assam officials vacate the place on or before July 12 failing which the State Government should construct a resting shed at Zophai near Bairabi town along the Mizoram-Assam border, where the border standoff erupted in March last year.

According to the MZP leader, the State Government did not take any measure to either make the Assam officials vacate the place or construct a resting shed at Zophai.

�We have therefore decided to go ahead with our plan to hold a protest rally in Aizawl on Friday as a clarion call to protect Mizoram�s territory,� Renthlei said. The student leader also said that the meeting of Core Committee on border held on Wednesday asked the student body to cancel the proposed rally.
