Aizawl  April 21, 2015: Opposition Mizo National Front (MNF) today said if the Hmar People's Convention (Democrats) is declared unlawful organisation, the Bru Democratic Front of Mizoram (BDFM) should also be outlawed.

Former Rajya Sabha member and core committee member of the MNF Lalhmingliana said the BDFM had been indulging in illegal activities along the Mizoram-Bangladesh-Tripura border areas in Mamit district.

Lalhmingliana said the BDFM cadres working together with the NLFT based in the jungles of Bangladesh, had abducted a large number of people for ransom including non-tribals working in the state.

The MNF and other major opposition parties in the state agreed with the state government to outlaw the HPC(D) outfit, responsible for killing three policemen while ambushing a state Assembly committee on government assurances team on March 28 last near Zokhawthiang along the Mizoram-Manipur border.

The meeting of the all political parties convened by state home minister R Lalzirliana on April 13 had unanimously agreed that the Union Home Ministry be approached to declare HPC(D) as an unlawful organisation.

The MNF party representatives in the all-party meeting expressed opinion that the BDFM should also be outlawed as they were indulging in abduction of many innocent people, which was regarded as an act of terror by the international community, Lalhmingliana added.
