Must read

Imphal, July 3: The Mizoram government has decided to seek public donation to provide relief to displaced people of Manipur, who have migrated to the Mizoram following outbreak of violence in their State.

“Donation would likely be sought from the government officials, employees and the people in general,” a Home Department official said.

He said that a delegation from the state led by Tourism Minister Robert Romawia last month met officials of the Union Home Ministry including Home Secretary Ajay Kumar Bhalla and requested them to provide funds for the relief and shelter to the displaced people from Manipur.

Mizoram Chief Minister Zoramthanga has also written two letters to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on May 16 and May 23, respectively and sought financial support of Rs. 10 crore to provide relief to the displaced people from Manipur.

The tribals belonging to the Kuki-Zo-Zomi community started trickling into Mizoram soon after the ethnic violence broke out in Manipur on May 3.

Mizoram currently houses over 12,000 displaced people from Manipur.
