AIZAWL, June 28 - The Opposition Mizo National Front (MNF) national executive council today decided to attend the formal launching of the North East Democratic Alliance (NEDA) in Guwahati on July 13 as the party is the only member of the alliance from Mizoram.
The MNF also decided that the party, if voted to power in the State Assembly polls to be held in 2018, would scrap the Mizoram Liquor Prohibition and Control Act and again impose the stringent prohibition law.
The party slammed the State Government for the outbreak of the Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome in five districts of Mizoram, which claimed thousands of pigs and attributed the outbreak to the permission by the State Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Minister C Ngunlianchunga for import of pigs and piglets from Myanmar. The State Government should compensate for the economic loss to the people affected, the party demanded. � PTI
