Why did the protests in Mizoram break out?

Thousands of Mizos led by an umbrella organisation of civil societies and student bodies on Tuesday took to the streets in Aizawl, demanding the removal of state chief electoral officer S B Shashank. Abhishek Saha joins me to discuss why there have been protests in poll-bound Mizoram. Next, the first-ever I-League match in the Kashmir Valley, took place at the Polo Ground in Srinagar. But this ground wouldn’t even be there if it wasn’t for Abdul Majeed Kakroo’s threat to self-immolate to save the ground back in 2007. Mihir Vasavda joins me to talk about this football legend. Last, Collins dictionary adds a spate of new words.
