In a tweet, Chief Minister Zoramthanga wrote, “Humanitarian assistance as a responsible Government, we don't have much but we are ready to share!...”

Mizoram is playing the role of being the humane, friendly neighbour. The state is sheltering over 11,785 people from Manipur who have been rendered homeless by the violence that has rocked the state since May 3.
In a tweet, Chief Minister Zoramthanga wrote, “Humanitarian assistance as a responsible Government, we don’t have much but we are ready to share!
2388.50 quintals of rice issued to Zo ethnic tribes in troubled Manipur areas and internally displaced persons residing in Mizoram by Govt. Of Mizoram, including other relief supplies.

A total of 11785 IDPs from Manipur have taken shelter in Mizoram since the eruption of ethnic strife in Manipur. Mizoram is currently providing shelter to over 50,000 people from neighbouring Manipur, Myanmar and Bangladesh.
Mizoram, an Eternal Home for all Zo Ethnic Tribes! An equally safe haven for non-ethnic & every law-abiding citizen! As much a safe place it is for the Meiteis, we wish to see Manipur a safe place for the law-abiding Zo Ethnic Tribes!”
Earlier on June 16, Mizoram Minister for Tourism, Robert Romawia Royte and senior Mizoram government officials met Union Home Secretary Ajat Bhalla seeking humanitarian aid of Rs 10 crores to ensure proper food and habitation for the over 11,000 displaced Manipuris seeking refuge in Mizoram.
