Reacting to the outfit's diktat, the central YMA today informed all the targetted branches to defy the diktat and not dissolve the YMA branches.
Taking a strong exception to central YMA president's reported remarks in a public meeting at Ramhlun Sports Complex on January 30 last, the HPC-D said in a press statement on Tuesday that the HPC-D "forcibly dissolved" all YMA branches in the HPC-D demanded area.
"The HPC-D will not be responsible for any untoward incident that may befall office-bearers of the YMA branches that defy the dissolution order and continue to function," the release said.
According to the HPC-D's handout, central YMA 'president' T Sangkunga, in his public speech, expressed outfit's strong opposition to any attempt to upgrade the Sinlung Hills Development Council to an autonomous district council status.
The HPC-D construed the central YMA president's remarks as "derogatory" to the Hmar community and "detrimental" to unity of different Mizo tribes as a whole.
It accused the central YMA of not accepting non-Lusei speaking people as Mizos.
