Aizawl: K. Sapdanga, working president of Mizoram’s main opposition party, Zoram People’s Movement (ZPM), stated on Wednesday that if the ZPM comes to power, their top priority will be to uplift farmers in the state.
Addressing party workers in the Hrangturzo assembly constituency, Sapdanga also emphasised their commitment to youth development.
“Our first priority will be to lift the farmers. We also give due importance to youth development,” he said.
He mentioned that supporting farmers not only benefits them but also vendors, taxi drivers, and traders. Sapdanga highlighted the concerns of government employees and youth affected by drugs due to government failures.
“Government employees want to see new government. They want to see a new government, which can release salary in time,” he said.
