The protesters wanted Darlawn district be curved out of Aizawl district “for development of the area”.

According to Darlawn District Demand Committee secretary Lalhmangaizual, there are 41 villages within the designated Darlawn district demand area.

“We do not want to be attached with other district, but new district with separate administrative setup for development of our area,” he said.

The demand for creation of Darlawn district reportedly began in 1988.
