Zoramthanga denies secret pact with BJP

Aizawl: Mizo National Front (MNF) president Zoramthanga on Monday denied secret pact between the MNF and BJP.

The Congress and other political parties have accused MNF of having secret tie with the BJP for the upcoming polls.

Addressing a meeting at the MNF office here on Monday, former Mizoram chief minister said that the Congress and other political parties were spreading false propaganda because they are jealous of the MNF as it is likely to win the upcoming assembly polls.

Mizoram will go to polls on November 28 and results will be announced on December 11.

Zoramthanga said that his party has fielded 40 seats and the BJP has nominated 39 candidates for the assembly polls, which manifested no link between the regional and national parties.

He said that his party would not need to work with either the BJP or other political parties because it would win simple majority in the polls.

The former rebel leader alleged that the Congress has been working with the BJP.

“Even though congress president and chief minister Lal Thanhawla had said that they had withdrawn from the BJP led Chakma Autonomous District Council (CADC), the Congress is still working with the BJP in the council,” he alleged.

The CADC government was run by the United Legislature Party (ULP) of the BJP-Congress combine.

Congress claimed that it had withdrawn from the ULP on 29 October due to the activities of the incumbent Chief Executive Member (CEM) of the CADC and leader of BJP Legislature Party Shanti Jiban Chakma, which went against the interest of the party and the people.

Zoramthanga said that when the Congress is deserted by its senior leaders and workers, the MNF is fortunate to recruit thousands of new voters.

He reiterated that the MNF would impose total prohibition in the state, if it comes to power.

The MNF leader also said that his government would re-instate the old school timing as students and parents alike were badly affected by the new school timing introduced by the Congress government.

He added that his government would set up centre for drug addicts, review life time vehicle tax, would give special concern to government employee and work for the augmentation of state’s economy through its Socio-Economic Development Policy (SEDP).
