Halpuah leh halmawi
AIZAWL, Nov 23: A meeting chaired by Mizoram Home Minister Lalchamliana here today decided to ban sale and bursting of firecrackers and sky lanterns as well as sale and possession of toy guns during the upcoming festive season. The meeting, attended by top officials of the state government and leaders of the Central YMA was held to day at the SAD Conference Hall, MINECO. 

In view of the raging COVID-19 pandemic, the committee appealed to the people of Mizoram to avoid bursting of firecrackers as pollution caused by such activities could exacerbate conditions of COVID-19 patients and people suffering from other respiratory diseases. 

It was decided that special police checkpoints and mobile patrolling will be revamped. All district magistrates will issue prohibitory orders and those found disobeying the order will be duly penalised. 

The Local Level Task Forces set up to combat COVID-19 pandemic will also be roped in for this purpose. A visual communication campaign to raise awareness on the subject will also be featured by using platforms such as social media, newspapers, electronic media and public information systems.
