Delhi 10.08.2023: Ruling Mizo National Front is deeply hurt over the condition of the Zo ethnic people in strife-torn Manipur, Lok Sabha MP Lalrosanga said

The Mizo National Front (MNF), a National Democratic Alliance (NDA) partner, has decided to back the no-confidence motion moved by the Opposition alliance in Parliament against the BJP-led government at the Centre. 

Mizoram’s lone Lok Sabha member C. Lalrosanga August 10, told journalists that he would support the Indian National Developmental, Inclusive Alliance (INDIA) during the voting. 

“We are extremely unhappy with the way the BJP government has dealt with the situation in Manipur, where our brothers and sisters are badly affected and in distress,” he said. 

The MNF, which rules Mizoram, is also against the proposed Uniform Civil Code (UCC), he said. 

The Mizos, who dominate Mizoram, are ethnically related to the Kuki-Zomi people caught in the conflict with the majority Meitei community in Manipur. 

Mr. Lalrosanga said the no-confidence motion was discussed with the party leadership, including Mizoram Chief Minister Zoramthanga. 

The State’s lone Rajya Sabha member, K. Vanlalvena, has also vowed to oppose the UCC and the Centre’s handling of the Manipur violence in the Upper House. 

The two Mizoram MPs had skipped the meeting of their NDA counterparts, which was addressed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi. 

Mr. Zoramthanga, also the MNF president, said his party had not taken a call on pulling out of the NDA ahead of the Assembly election scheduled for December. The Mizoram House has 40 seats.
