NEDA Member Mizoram’s Mizo National Front (MNF) would not support BJP in any case at the centre and in the state.
Despite ruling Mizo National Front (MNF) in Mizoram is a member of the BJP led North East Democratic Alliance (NEDA), Mizoram CM and MNF President Zoramthanga made it clear that his party had never supported and would not maintain an alliance with the BJP in any issues.
Mizoram’s lone Lok Sabha member C. Lalrosanga said that he would offer issue-based support to the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance Government headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“The MNF had never supported the BJP and would not maintain an alliance with the party. The MNF had come under severe criticism by rival parties during 58 years of its existence,” an MNF spokesman said.
According to the MNF, over 1,000 party cadres and leaders had died during the secessionist movement between 1966 and 1986.
Zoramthanga said: “We entirely rely on our motto ‘For God and our Nation’. The Almighty has saved us despite violence unleashed by rival political parties who tried to destroy us. Unlike other political parties, the MNF has never changed its name and would never do that in the future.
The Chief Minister had also skipped the recent swearing-in ceremonies of the BJP led governments at the centre and in Arunachal Pradesh.
