Mizoram govt urged to be strict in enforcing law on illegal immigration
Aizawl: Young Mizo Association (YMA), the largest organisation of Mizos, today adopted a resolution urging the state government to be more stringent in enforcing the law on illegal settlements and unauthorised villages.
The delegates expressed serious concern over widespread illegal settlements by foreigners in the border areas without permission from authorities.
The YMA, in its general conference held at the Mizoram-Myanmar border Khawbung village, appealed to the government to enforce the Mizoram Revenue Act, 2013 strictly.
Expressing concern over fast depleting water resources due to degradation of forests, the YMA urged the government to create a large number of water resources safety reserves across the state.
The YMA also asked the government not to construct the Tipaimukh Hydro Electric Project on the Mizoram-Manipur border as the dam would displace many Mizos and submerge large areas of Mizoram.
