16th March, 2021 : MP(LS) Shri C. Lalrosanga met External Affairs Minister Shri S. Jaishankar in Parliament House today and voiced serious concerns for the shelter and well-being of refugees coming to Mizoram, following the political turmoil in neighbouring Myanmar. A large section of the spill-over to Mizoram shared the same ethnic ancestry and community as the Mizos and hence, the MP(LS) said that looking out for their safety and welfare was a priority. He also expressed his gratitude for the asylum the Indian Government has afforded to Myanmarese refugees for the past 25 years or so under the aegis of the United Nations, which has been of great solace to them.  

External Affairs Minister Shri S.Jaishankar said that he shared the MP’s concerns over the refugee situation and assured him that the matter will be dealt with cautiously and conducively.

Earlier today, MP(LS) Shri C. Lalrosanga also attended the reception for Inter Parliamentary Union President Shri Duarte Pacheko at the Parliament House. In the reception, which was attended by both Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi leh Lok Sabha Speaker Shri Om Birla, the IPU President lauded India’s leadership and continued support towards establishing and upholding democracy.
