Aizawl: At a political session held at the Mizo National Front (MNF) headquarters on Friday, Lalruatkima, MNF Adviser and Rural Development Minister, delivered an address touching upon the essence of Mizo nationalism and expressing gratitude for the collaborative efforts in conducting free and fair elections.
Lalruatkima accused the ZPM party of attempting to emulate the Soviet Union Communist government by establishing a politburo through the Val Upa Council. He likened their approach to the formation of communist-aligned parties in central India with non-Congress and non-BJP support, which he said, emphasised their primary goal of upholding communism.
During his speech, Lalruatkima also spoke on the pivotal role of Mizo nationalism, asserting that the MNF’s commitment to it prevented Mizo women from tending to the children of non-Mizos. Drawing parallels to the Biblical narrative of the children of Israel, he underscored the need to uphold the principles initiated by Laldenga.
The Rural Development Minister extended gratitude to election officials, the Mizoram Peoples Forum, churches, and NGOs for their cooperation in ensuring a transparent electoral process. Anticipating favorable results, he thanked the public in advance for their support.
Addressing speculations about a hung assembly, Lalruatkima dismissed the notion, asserting that such predictions had never materialised in past elections. He stated, “There has never been the need to form a post-poll alliance,” expressing confidence in Chief Minister Zoramthanga’s potential re-election in his constituency.
