Aizawl, July 27 (PTI) Mizoram will not revive the Suspension of Operation (SoO) signed with Manipur's Hmar People's Convention (Democrats), as it has signed one with the Centre.

Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla today told the state assembly that the Centre signed SoO with a number of ethnic insurgent groups in Manipur including Kuki, Hmar and Paite and the need did not arise to renew the SoO signed by the state government with the HPC-D in November last year.

Intervening in a discussion during the question hour, Thanhawla said that the SoO between the HPC-D and the Centre covered only Manipur and had not been extended to neighbouring states like Assam, Mizoram and Tripura.

Stating that the government would not allow balkanisation of Mizoram, he said,"That is why we created the Sinlung Hill Development Council with an executive order after signing the government-HPC accord, not a political council.
