After the recent Manipur violence incident, the State Government has planned to airlift Meiteis from Mizoram, one of the two communities engaged in violence with the Kukis, from Aizawl. This comes after an organisation of former militants in Mizoram asked all the Meiteis to leave their homes for their “own safety”. The organisation stated that there is “anger among Mizo youths” over the two women sexual assault case.
