|Mizoram Cong slams Centre|
AIZAWL, Aug 6 - The Mizoram Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) today slammed the BJP-led NDA Government at the Centre for abrogating the special status accorded to Jammu and Kashmir without consulting the people, elected representatives or the political parties.
In a press statement issued here, the MPCC said that the very move of the Modi Government has endangered the special provisions given to Mizoram, Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh under Article 371 of the Constitution.
“These North Eastern States were given protection and safeguard with the Inner Line Permit (ILP) system so that the natives would not be assimilated by people from outside the States,” the State PCC said, adding that the ILP system may also be “scrapped” by the ‘authoritarian’ BJP regime. – PTI
