In an apparent dig at the local parties, particularly the MNF, Mizoram PCC Campaign Committee chairman Zodintluanga said people of Mizoram have lost faith in these parties.
Zodintluanga, considered as the most successful among the ministers of Lal Thanhawla government, is of the opinion that these parties have been rejected by the people and will never return to power.
Recalling history of Mizoram elections, Zodintluanga said local political parties in Mizoram once overthrown from power, have been ‘buried’.
Since union territory days, once overthrown no political party from Mizoram has ever returned to power. He cited the examples of the Mizo Union, the first political party of significance, the Mizo People’s Conference which never came back to power in Mizoram.
Citing history Zodintluanga said that the MNF, an organization formed because of the bamboo flowering of 1966 has already dug their grave during the 2006 bamboo flowering. “No political party from Mizoram has returned to power, the MNF will not,” Zodintluanga predicted.
Addressing to a Congress rally at Thenhlum village of Thorang AC in southern Mizoram Zodintluanga also said the MNF party has never won the sentiments of the people of Mizoram. He accused MNF of having no principle and objective.
“They don’t have anything to offer. They just went on telling lies and refraining that no party made a hat-trick in Mizoram. This is the only principle they have. The people of Mizoram want to see a concrete objective from the MNF, which they do not,” Zodintluanga said.
Zodintluanga, the incumbent sports minister is aiming for his fourth state assembly seat from Thorang AC. He is up against Lalrinzuala of Zoram People’s Movement, R Rohmingliana of the MNF, Lalhuliana of the NPP and Joseph Lalzawmliana of the BJP.
