If you search and browse thru Mizoram related news on the internet, we are way too popular already for rats even though now is just the beginning of the foretold famine.There are lots of news under titles such as “Armies of rodent”, “10,000 rats killed” floating on the internet.
Last Sunday here in Chennai at Mizo Service, Pu Lawmsanga IPS during a brief report of his recent trip to Mizoram suggested a simple solution. According to him, we know every well that rats will eat up crops, we do people still do farming? “Stop cultivation during bamboo flowering”, he suggested. “This is my anxiety”, he said. The government instead of investing the money in various schemes may buy food(rice) for villagers. He could be right.
If there’s no paddy to eat, will rats come to town?
