Narco-terrorism increasing in Mizoram: Thanhawla

Aizawl: Mizoram Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla today said incidents of narco-terrorism have increased in Mizoram due to its porous 404-km-long international border with Myanmar.

To tackle the menace, he said in a statement that security forces deployed in the border area should be strengthened.

In a meeting with Principal Adviser to Prime Minister T K A Nair here last evening, Lal Thanhawla emphasised the need for upgradation of telecom services in the border areas.

Mizoram hosted around one lakh Chin migrants from Myanmar, he said adding that the Centre should provide more fund for better infrastructure development. Nair, who visited Mizoram ahead of the PM`s visit to Myanmar, also went to Indo-Myanmar border trade centre at Zokhawthar.
