Mizoram: Mizo National Front rules out electoral alliance with any party

Assembling elections are around the corner in Mizoram and political parties are in full elections mode. Polls will be held on Nov 28 in Mizoram and the result will be declared on 11th December.

The Mizo National Front (MNF) President Zoramthanga has ruled out the possibility of MNF forming an electoral front with any party in the upcoming Assembly elections.

When asked whether MNF will form an alliance with any party, Zoramthanga said that MNF is fighting against Congress as well as other small parties. He said he is confident his party will get over 25 seats in the 40-member Assembly.

“The Congress, which has been ruling the state for the last 10 years, is crumbling and is ravaged by an exodus of senior leaders,” he added.

“All churches, NGOs and the civil society here want a ban on alcohol, which the Congress government had lifted in 2014, after 17 years of prohibition. if we are voted to power, we will have a Mizo-type prohibition on the sale of liquor. Liquor sale is harming the social fabric and leading several families into a financial mess,” Zoramthanga said in response to a query on whether he will impose Bihar-like liquor ban.

Meanwhile, MNF senior VP Tawnluia has said that there is no chance of any post-poll alliance or coalition with the BJP as they are ‘ideologically completely different’. MNF has been believed to be close to the BJP as it is a constituent of the BJP-led North East Democratic Alliance.

Zoramthanga also said that BJP has no appeal in the Christian state. While he ruled out having an understanding with BJP, he expressed the possibility of aligning with the NDA if they have an MP in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
