The People’s Representation for Identity and Status of Mizoram (PRISM), the newly floated political party in Mizoram on Saturday forged an alliance with two other ‘not so significant’ regional political parties for the ensuing Assembly elections in the State stated for later this year.
The other two political parties are Mizoram Chhantu Pawl (MCP) or Save Mizoram Front and Operation Mizoram.
Operation Mizoram convener, Vanlalhuma Kawlni, while interacting with media at the PRISM office in Aizawl on Saturday said the three parties have agreed upon working together for the upcoming Assembly polls.
Kawlni said if voted to power, the alliance would work to bring back the entire state under the Sixth Schedule to protect the State as a tribal area.
He asserted that it would be ‘politically and socially unsafe’ for the people if the entire State is not brought back under the Sixth Schedule.
He also said the alliance would resolve the long-pending inter-state boundary dispute with Assam on priority basis.
He further asserted that the the constitutional boundary declared by the Union Home Ministry and the Assam government in 1933 is not acceptable.
He said that the actual and constitutional boundary of Mizoram was the one declared by the British as Southern Frontier of the Cachar district, notified in 1875 under the Bengal Eastern Frontier Regulation of 1873.
He said this boundary was declared as Lushai territory according to the Inner Line Reserved Forest Declaration in 1877.
He also asserted that the three-party alliance would take all possible steps to flush out illegal migrants from the State if voted to power.
