Church Urges Parties Not To Use Insurgents in Mizoram Polls

Aizawl, Sep 30 : Presbyterian Church of Mizo Synod today asked political parties in Mizoram not to use insurgent and armed groups during campaign for the ensuing polls in the 40-member assembly in the state.

In a message, the largest church in the state also urged all political parties, candidates and campaigners not to indulge in character assassination, baseless allegations against political opponents and use muscle and money power to get elected.

The church also asked voters not to support candidates indulging in purchase of votes, criminal intimidation, threats and character assassination.

"Candidates living beyond their means and having movable and immovable asset disproportionate to their known sources of income are to be regarded as greedy people with corrupt mind, unfit to rule the state and the people," the message said.
