MNF opposes NCMEI order

By The Assam Tribune

AIZAWL, March 16 � The opposition Mizo National Front (MNF) today took strong exception to the new rulings of the National Commission for Minority Educational Institutions (NCMEI) that require 30 per cent students from a minority community for an institution to claim minority status.

The MNF, in a statement, expressed fear that the country�s best known Christian schools and colleges could lose minority status as their students comprised less than 30 per cent from the community.

�The new orders of the NCMEI will have far reaching impact on the Christian-run institutions in particular and the Christian community in the country in general,� the statement said.

The MNF, led by former Chief Minister Zoramthanga, also expressed anguish over the absence of a Christian representative in the Commission as �the NCMEI is required to have members from the Sikh and Christian communities in addition to a Muslim representative�. � PTI
