K Sapdanga, working president of the Zoram People’s Movement (ZPM), said on Thursday that his party is committed to bringing changes to the state’s political arena by building a new system.
He said that the state has been rotated between the Mizo National Front (MNF) and the Congress for more than 30 years, but no changes could be seen under their regimes.
Sapdanga said that the new political system is all about new ideologies and principles and however, which were never seen during the MNF and Congress governments.
Moreover, they will not adopt the MNF and Congress’s strategy of monetary distribution in the name of development.
He claimed that the MNF and Congress’s ‘distribution’ systems had only served to corrupt the people’s minds, which had a negative impact on the state’s entire political structure.
It should be noted that Congress gave Rs 1 lakh in financial support to eligible individuals under its flagship program New Land Use Policy (NLUP), which was later merged with New Economic Development Policy (NEDP), throughout its ten-year administration from 2008 to 2018.
During the 2018 election campaign, the MNF vowed to provide Rs 3 lakh in cash support to eligible households under its flagship program Socio-Economic Development Policy (SEDP).
However, after forming the government in December 2018, the MNF stated that the support will be provided on a project-by-project basis rather than in “cash.”
Sapdanga stated that his party will not utilize the money to entice the voters under the pretext of development.
The ZPM leader also expressed optimism about his party’s chances of retaining the Tuirial seat.
Meanwhile, ZPM leader Lalduhoma urged people to vote for the party in the impending by-election for the Tuirial assembly seat in order to make the party’s policies a reality.
He asked party members to adhere to the party’s philosophy and agenda of creating a new political system in the state.
The by-election for the Tuirial seat, which was necessitated by the death of incumbent MLA Andrew H. Thangliana in August, is scheduled for October 30 and the counting of the votes will be held on November 2.
