Aizawl, May 17 (UNI) The Hnahthial District Demand Committee (HDDC) today called off its 20-day-long hunger strike after Mizoram Chief Minister Zoramthanga assured to consider its demand.

Mr Zoramthanga in a meeting with Mizoram Kohhran Hruaitute (clergies) Committee yesterday assured to consider their demand for a separate Hnahthial district in the next Cabinet meeting this month.
