Senior Mizo National Front (MNF) adviser and Deputy Chief Minister Tawnluia on Friday claimed that his party is different from others.
Addressing a meeting at the MNF office here, Tawnluia said the MNF belonged to the entire Mizo nation and is different from other political parties because it is the party of Mizos.
Founded by former chief minister late Laldenga in 1961, the party now celebrates 60 years of its existence, he said.
“Together with the pioneers, who started the MNF to safeguard and uplift the Mizo tribes and fought for their freedom and dignity, we will strive to strengthen the party,” he said.
He said the MNF did not care party affiliation when it comes to the interest of the Mizos.
Party adviser and excise minister Dr. K. Beichhua also claimed that the MNF party was anointed by God to face hard times and adversities.
“Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, many projects have been implemented under the leadership of chief minister Zoramthanga and other leaders,” he said.
During the function, Tawnluia inducted at least nine student and Congress leaders into the party.
