An umbrella organisation of major civil societies and students’ associations in Mizoram on Monday decided to boycott the April 11 election to the lone Mizoram Lok Sabha seat and organise a State-wide indefinite bandh from April 8, sources said.

The NGO Coordination Committee said that a decision was taken earlier to boycott the parliamentary poll if special polling booths were established at the Mizoram-Tripura border Kanhmun village.

“The NGOCC opposed the special polling stations for Bru refugees at Kanhmun,” an NGOCC statement said.
