Aizawl,(PTI) Mizoram’s NGO Coordination Committee, an umbrella organisation of civil societies and students’ bodies, have decided to boycott the Republic Day celebrations in the state in protest against the citizenship bill, the committee’s chairman Vanlalruata said.

In a press statement issued after a meeting of the NGO Coordination Committee here, it said that the Lok Sabha has passed the contentious Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016 despite widespread protests.

“The bill necessitates stronger protests,” it said.

All government employees, students and general public would stay away from functions organised on Republic Day on January 26, it said.
