Aizawl: The Mizoram Assembly on Friday adopted a private resolution condemning racial attacks on the north eastern people in different parts of the country.
The private resolution, moved by opposition Mizo National Front (MNF) legislator, Lalruatkima, said that there were a plethora of incidents of discrimination and racial attacks on the north eastern people in different parts of the country resulting in sufferings and even deaths.
The resolution strongly condemned such discrimination and racial attacks and expressed hope that such attacks would not recur.
Demand for an anti-racial law by the Centre was the main idea of the original resolution.
However, due to the objection by Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla and his party legislators, the resolution was amended deleting the demand for enacting anti-racial law.
