Mizo Zirlai Pawl To Conduct Census Of 'Foreigners'

Aizawl, Jul 13 : Mizo Zirlai Pawl (MZP) or Mizo Students' Federation on Thursday decided to conduct a census of the population of "foreigners" in Mizoram, especially Chakmas, who, it alleged, illegally migrated to the state.

At a meeting of its Federal Council at Tlabung, a town in Lunglei district along the the Mizoram-Bangladesh border, the MZP also urged the Chakma Autonomous District Council authorities to allow only bona fide residents to settle in the state while implementing resettlement of people displaced by Indo-Bangladesh border fencing.

The students' body also decided to take steps to ensure that Mizo couples produce more children to preserve their ethnicity, a source said.
