Aizawl, Nov 29 (UNI) The Hmar People's Convention-Democratic (HPC-D) is putting efforts to ensure that the ruling Mizo National Front is not voted back to power in the December two elections.
HPC-D also rubbished the report that it had tied up with certain political parties for the 40-seat Assembly polls.
Whether the Congress party or the United Democratic Alliance come to power, we will place our demands in the state government, HPC-D president Lalhmingthanga Sanate said in a press statement faxed to the media here today.
Explaining reasons to oppose MNF, HPC-D stated that it had employed divide and rule policy among the Hmar people. It added that in the thirst for power, the MNF has plotted a war among the Hmar tribes.
HPC-D is an offshoot of the Hmar People's Convention (HPC), which came into existence in 1986, as a political party spearheading movement for self-government in the north and northeast Mizoram.
Later a section of the cadres parted ways with the over ground HPC and formed HPC-D in 1995.
Interestingly, the MNF has struck a pre-poll deal with the overground HPC led by Hmingchungnunga, the chairman of SHDC whereas the Pradesh Congress has tied up with the Malsawma Darngawn-led HPC.
