Aizawl, Mar 19 : Mizoram government is planning to purchase around 50 piglets from England for Rs 98,000 each, the state Assembly was informed on Thursday.

Mizoram Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Minister C Ngunlianchunga said the government intended to purchase pure breed large white Yorkshire and pure breed Landrace pigs. The piglets were of higher quality compared to the local breed in many respects, he said.

Replying to a query of Lalruatkima of the opposition Mizo National Front (MNF), the minister said the government had earlier planned to purchase piglets from Canada at the cost of Rs 1.15 lakh each.

But the arrangement failed as the Centre refused to give security protocol in view of swine flu prevailing in that country.

Pork is one of the most common meats consumed in Mizoram.
