Mizoram Cong Regrets Punjab MLA's 'Stray Dogs' Remark

Aizawl, Jul 5 : Mizoram Pradesh Congress today expressed deep regrets over the stray-dog-for-NE India remark made by Punjab MLA Ajit Singh Mofar had made in his state assembly on June 28.

"The Mizoram Pradesh Congress Committee deeply regrets the honourable MLA Ajit Singh Mofar's remark that stray dogs in his state be sent to China, Nagaland or Mizoram as it amounts to insult to the people concerned and cruelty to animals," said a statement issued by MPCC media department.

"Whereas it is certain that stray dogs in Chandigarh and other Punjab towns and cities have become a public nuisance, it was unfortunate that our own Congress MLA made a comment which was insulting and derogatory to others," the statement said.

Expressing shock over such derogatory remark from a legislator elected on Indian National Congress ticket, the MPCC apologised to all Mizos whose sentiments have been hurt by the controversial remark.
