Mizo house seeks change in Lushai

AIZAWL: The Mizoram Assembly on Thursday unanimously passed an official resolution requesting the Government of India to amend the Constitution (Scheduled Tribes) Order, 1950.

The official resolution, moved by home minister R Lalzirliana sought the substitution of Any Mizo (Lushai) tribes as written in the serial number 10 of the Constitution (Scheduled Tribes) Order, 1950 by "Any Mizo tribes". It also moved to delete serial no. 7 (vi) of the order that listed the Gangtes as a sub-tribe of Kuki tribe "because the Gangtes belonged to Mizo tribe".

The resolution also sought to substitute the words Lakher and Pawi in the same order as the two tribes already changed the names of their tribes as Mara and Lai respectively.

Members, who participated in the discussion of the resolution said that the amendment of the Constitution (Scheduled Tribes) Order, 1950, as sought by the resolution would improve integrity of the ethnic Mizos in the state and in neighbouring states.
