Zoramthanga Ready To Broker Peace if Any Group Wants?

Aizawl, Oct 16 : Former Mizoram chief minister and opposition Mizo National Front (MNF) chief Zoramthanga today said that he was ready to broker peace with any government and insurgent group, if they wanted so.

Addressing a press conference here, former underground leader Zoramthanga said that he had recently held discussion in Delhi with former UK Premier Tony Blair's 'Intermediate group' engaged in brokering peace deals across the globe.

He said that members of the Intermediate group, headed by Blair's right-hand man Jonathan Powell was interested in the time-tested and most successful historic Mizo Peace Accord signed between the Indian government and the erstwhile underground MNF on June 30, 1986.

Zoramthanga had been involved in the Naga peace talks and also in the peace deal with the Garo insurgent group ANVC (Achik National Volunteer Council), which recently signed an accord with the Centre in Delhi.

He was sent to Bangkok to meet NSCN (I-M) leaders Isak Swu and Th. Muivah and also ANVC top leaders including Washington.

The former chief minister said that he did not rule out mid-term poll in Mizoram as the Congress government led by Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla has been facing severe financial crisis and the state was apt for declaration of financial emergency under the constitution.

He alleged that the Thanhawla administration has miserably failed in financial management resulting in severe financial problems.
