Hundreds of Mizos wearing traditional mourning shawls (pawn dum) spread out across Aizawl city on Saturday in protest demonstrations against the government’s proposed move to reintroduce Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016 (CAB).
The Joint NGO Coordination Committee gave out a release stating that the home minister has assured of bringing in provisions under the Inner Line Permit (ILP) system to ensure the safety of the Mizos. 
At the fourth North East Democratic Alliance (NEDA) conclave held in Guwahati recently, Shah, while addressing the fears of the regional allies of the BJP, said the proposed bill would not affect the special provisions for northeastern states under Article 371.
