Aizawl, Sep 5 : The Zoram Nationalist Party’s (ZNP) ‘Save Mizoram Long March’ campaign concluded on Tuesday at Lunglei in Mizoram after having covered 175 km. The march was flagged off on August 26 from at Vanapa Hall, Aizawl.
The purpose of the march was to save Mizoram from its bondage, to heal the wounds that cripple the state, to free the state from corruption. The concluding function was held at Art & Culture Auditorium, Lunglei.
Addressing the programme, Zoram Nationalist Party (ZNP) chief Lalduhawma asked the people to make their choice between two options. He said, the people of Mizoram are dissatisfied with the performance of the past successive governments in the state.
"Now is the time to make a bold decision to choose between the good which will rescue the Mizos and the bad which will lead to extinction.”
Addressing the people at various places during the 9-day march, ZNP Vice President K. Liantlinga said Mizoram has several illnesses, and “we are encircled by a number of miseries.” "Thus, Mizoram needs to be saved. It has to be saved from poverty, corruption, malpractices and injustice. People have to be delivered from these bondages and our land should be saved from recession", he said.
The Chief Minister according to K. Liantlinga is constantly talking about Mizoram as a served state and that the people are sluggish. "But he is wrong, we are not a sluggard, instead we are not getting equivalent shares and profits", he said.
"Political parties who ruled the sate played party politics and vote bank politics. Instead of doing good deeds and making a remarkable treasure for the country, they only cared for their career. They exercised nepotism ignoring the qualified and talented one. We have to liberate Mizoram from this defective political system", asserted K. Liantlinga.
He further added that ZNP would not follow ‘Disbursement Policy’, but rather “follow the policy of reaping the fruit of hard work’. The disbursement of New Land Use Policy (NLUP) according to Liana is a mere fool. "As soon as people receive it, it comes to smoke and people remained at the same precarious state without making any progress. Therefore, free gift brings no good result", he added.
