Aizawl, Sep 28 (UNI) The Young Mizo Association (YMA) in Tanhril village, about 15 kilometres from Aizawl, has asked all Myanmarese migrants staying in the village to leave before October 4.
YMA Thanhril branch secretary Lalrinsanga told UNI here today that the move to force Burmese migrant workers out of the village came in the wake of a brawl between locals and Burmese nationals on September 7 when the latter allegedly eve-teased some Mizo girls.
The Burmese migrants also assaulted a local boy who came to the rescue of the women, Mr Lalrinsanga alleged.
Later, social organisations of the village called a meeting and passed a resolution that the Burmese nationals should leave the village in order to maintain law and order situation in the village, Mr Lalrinsanga added.
''However, there are a number of law-abiding Burmese migrants in the village whose case may be considered by the village authorities on whether they should be allowed to stay back,'' he said.
Presently, around 30 Burmese nationals live in Thanhril village.
Most of them are engaged in stone quarries, farms, road construction sites and other manual work.
