Thanhawla To Undertake Consultations on Lifting Liquor Prohibition

Aizawl, Dec 16 : Mizoram Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla today said the new government would undertake wide consultations on the issue of lifting prohibition which is in force in the state since 1997.

In a press conference at the Raj Bhavan after the swearing-in ceremony, Thanhawla said the decision on prohibition would be taken with a lot of prayers and after consulting all sections of society.

He said the future of Bru people lodged in six relief camps in Tripura would be given serious consideration by the new government.

"We will try our best to end the stalemate and ensure that all the bonafide residents of Mizoram return," he said.

The government would make efforts to delete the names of those who refused to be repatriated.

The chief minister said that the portfolios of the newly inducted ministers would be allocated soon.
