Why and how did the Mizo Movement for succession gain popular support?

Advertisement Remove all ads


After India attained independence, the Mizo Hills area was made an autonomous district within Assam. Some Mizos believed that they were never a part of British India, and therefore, they did not belong to the Indian Union. However, the movement for secession got popular support after the Assam government failed to respond properly to the great famine of 1959 in the Mizo Hills.
