Mizoram People’s Conference (MPC) president Lalhmangaiha Sailo said his party will merge with newly floated People’s Representation for Identity and Status of Mizoram (PRISM) to bring a political change in the state.

Speaking to reporters at a press conference in Aizawl on Thursday, Sailo said both the parties have similar ideologies and agendas which led them to get united and merge together into a single political party.

He said the merger agreement will be inked on October 6 during which the first office-bearers of the new party will be appointed for an interim period.

Sailo said the name of the new political party will be named during the signing of the merger agreement.

He added that the main policies and programmes of the party will be six basic needs advocated by his late father Brig. T. Sailo, who founded the MPC in 1975.

PRISM president Vanlalruata said his party has been cheerising the policies and steps taken by T. Sailo to develop the state.

He thanked the MPC for finally agreeing to merge with PRISM into a single party.

Vanlalruata also said that the party would make massive efforts to bring real development in the state and fulfill the aspirations of the people.

The former anti-corruption watchdog, PRISM was registered as a political party in 2018.
