According to the JD(U), the Mizoram chief minister had called for “unification of Zo areas”. The JD(U) said it was a direct challenge to the unity of Manipur. The JD(U) termed the reported comment of the Mizoram chief minister as “unfortunate and irresponsible”.

 

A media report said that Mizoram chief minister Zoramthanga, during a meeting of Mizo National Front (MNF), had reportedly said that, “while any state government cannot directly interfere in the internal affairs of a state like Manipur, the unification of all the contiguous areas inhabited by Zo tribes has been one of the main objectives of the founding leaders of the MNF.”

Ksh Biren then alleged that the MNF meeting in Mizoram was also attended by one of the “Kuki-Chin” MLAs of Manipur.
