The top leadership of the Mizo National Front has called for a statewide rally on October 13 to protest against bad roads throughout Mizoram.

The condition of roads in Mizoram has been a matter of much public discussion in past few months, and past few years more generally.

Numerous local community-based groups throughout the state, including within capital Aizawl, have often called for volunteer community work to repair badly damaged roads.

Some have taken to blockades to highlight the state of bad roads leading to their towns and villages.

MNF president and former CM Zoramthanga has often ridiculed the state of affairs by saying citizens repair and maintain roads in Mizoram while the PWD supplies refreshments for volunteers.

CM Lal Thanhawla has meanwhile said the bad condition of roads is because of heavy rains, but declared local communities repairing them through volunteer labour is the Mizo thing to do.
