Mizoram: MNF snaps ties with NDA

March 08, 2007 14:09 IST

Mizo National front, one of the constituents of the National Democratic Alliance, has decided to snap ties with the coalition led by BJP.

MNF secretary K Lalthawmmawia said that the decision was taken at a meeting of the party's National Executive Committee chaired by state Chief Minister and party chief Zoramthanga in Aizwal on Wednesday.

Lalthawmmawia said that the party MPs, one in the Lok Sabha and the other in the Rajya Sabha, would become independents and give issue-based support on any issues to NDA or UPA. He said that the party's decision would be conveyed to George Fernandez, convener of the NDA.

Lalhmingliana, the lone Rajya Sabha member from the state, told PTI that MNF legislature party would arrange separate seats in both the houses of the parliament after the party informed its decision to the parliament.

When asked the reason for snapping ties with the BJP-led alliance, he said that Mizo people were confused with the MNF remaining with a 'Hindutva' party.
