MNF brings up issue of Myanmar refugees coming to Mizoram in Rajya Sabha


New Delhi, March 16: Mizo National Front Member K Valnalvena on Tuesday raised the issue of Myanmar refugees coming to Mizoram saying that due to military coup in that country, nearly 1,500 police personnel from Myanmar have entered the state.
“The Ministry of Home Affairs has issued directions to stop them. They are our brothers, sending to Myanmar will mean killing them. Being the biggest democratic country in the world, we must ensure restoration of democracy in Myanmar”, he said and urged the Chair to ask Union Home Ministry to renew the policy.
At this, Chairman M Venkaih Naidu said that it was not a democratic right of any foreigner to come here and demand anything. (Agencies)
