Mizoram: ZNP decides to severe ties with BJP
AIZAWL: Zoram Nationalist Party (ZNP) today said that it has decided to severe ties with BJP with which it had electoral alliance during the 2014 Lok Sabha polls and in the Aizawl Municipal Corporation (AMC) election in 2015.
In a press statement, ZNP, led by former Lok Sabha member Lalduhawma, said that after being in power at the Centre for two years, BJP began to implement its hidden agenda -'Hindutva', by prohibiting cow slaughter and "vandalising worship places of Christians" across the country.
Saffronisation of education and imposition of Yoga Day across Mizoram had worried the Mizoram Kohhran Hruaitute Committee (MKHC), the conglomerate of major church leaders in the state, it said.
ZNP said that the party, after careful deliberation, decided to sever ties with BJP so that it could continue its objective of protecting the Mizo culture and religion.
