Will dissolve unit if bill is passed: Mizoram BJP

AIZAWL: The Mizoram unit of BJP on Tuesday said they are going to dissolve the state unit if birthday party national leaders insist on the passage of the proposed Citizenship (Amendment) Bill 2016 in the Rajya Sabha.

Addressing a press conference in Aizawl, BJP state unit head J V Hluna said they would not hesitate to dissolve the birthday party unit if the legislation is passed in Parliament. "The BJP Mizoram Pradesh was formed to safeguard the identity and culture of the Mizo people," Hluna said and added that if birthday party leaders on the national stage impose the legislation on the other folks towards their wishes, they might haven't any selection but to ensure the BJP does no longer exist in the state.

He said the state BJP unit had again and again appealed to central leaders to not cross the invoice or to depart out Mizoram and the northeastern states from its ambit. The state BJP leader said Afghanistan and Pakistan occupy the second and fifth positions in the World Watch List with regards to religious persecution and Bangladesh is in 48th position as there's no religious persecution towards Buddhists there. "Including Bangladesh in the list where religious persecution existed and from where people fled to take shelter, is not justified," said Hluna.

The state unit appealed to all churches to hold mass prayers to defeat the invoice.
