SILCHAR: A number of NGOs based in Cachar district of Assam have called an indefinite blockade of NH- 306 connecting Silchar with Aizawl from 6 am on Wednesday in protest against alleged harassment of non-Mizos, particularly workers staying in Mizoram.
The blockade has been called by All Barak Youth Students’ Association (ABYSA) in cooperation with a number of clubs and other non-political social organizations. The agitators will put up a blockade at Lailapur near the Assam-Mizoram border, 60 km from here. This was decided at a meeting held at Lailapur on Monday, which was attended by hundreds of locals.
ABYSA chief convener Baharul Islam Barbhuiya said poor non-Mizo workers working in Mizoram are being harassed in the name of inner-line permit for quite sometime. The harassment is being carried out by Young Mizo Association (YMA) and some other Mizoram-based NGOs. As a result, thousands of non-Mizo workers have fled the neighbouring state in the last few months.
He added that the Mizoram government used to allow Assam-based non-Mizo workers to work for different projects in the tribal state on the basis of work permit issued by Mizo authorities. Such permits were issued for a period of 15 days and it was renewable after the specific period.
But recently, YMA members made it clear that such work permit is not a valid document for a non-Mizo person to enter into any part of Mizoram and work there. They started harassing workers on this pretext, the ABYSA functionary said on Monday.
