MPC Blames Mizo Govt For Alienating

Aizawl, Jan 9 : Mizoram People's Conference (MPC) today slammed the Congress government in the state for "alienating" ethnic Mizos who entered the state from other states and countries.

A press statement, issued by the MPC, accused the Lal Thanhawla-led government of discriminatory attitude towards the Mizos who fled neighbouring states, Myanmar and Bangladesh due to alleged persecution by majority communities in their respective states or countries.

"While all the political parties in Mizoram pledged for the unity and integrity of the Mizos, the state government perpetually alienated the Mizos coming from outside the state by refusing to enroll them in voters' list and denying ration cards to them," the statement said.

MPC urged the government and all political parties to work for the integration of all ethnic Mizos divided by the colonial British rulers.
