Aizawl  April 13, 2015: A meeting of all political parties of Mizoram convened by state home minister R Lalzirliana today unanimously agreed that the state government took steps to expedite declaration of the Hmar People's Convention (Democrats) as an unlawful organisation.

An official statement said representatives of all major political parties in the state attended the meeting, which condemned the ambush of the Assembly Committee on Government Assurances team by HPC(D) cadres on March 28 last killing three policemen.

The meeting also discussed on the steps government had taken after the killing of the three policemen.

The state government had mulled outlawing the HPC(D) and declare the north eastern parts of the state adjoining Manipur, where the Hmar militants usually operated from across the state borders, as disturbed area.

Officials of the state home department said a bill to this regard was being drafted and the state governor might issue an ordinance as the state legislature was not in session. (Press Trust of India)
