Mizoram Secretary for Higher and Technical Education K Lalnghinglova on Thurdsay said that the state government would soon reply to the show-cause notice served by the Gauhati High Court regarding amendment to the Mizoram (Selection of Candidates for Higher Technical Courses) (Sixth Amendment) Rules, 2015.

The High Court on Wednesday stayed the operation of the amended rules after the Mizoram Chakma Students Union challenged the constitutional validity of the rules. Lalnghinglova said that the copy of the court order was received by the government today and preparations were afoot to explain the situation in which the rules were amended.
