ZPM’s Chief Ministerial candidate, Lalduhoma, is planning to meet the Governor to stake a claim for government formation, promising to address the state’s financial crisis through necessary reforms.

He added that financial reform is essential and that a resource mobilisation team will be formed for the same. The team will also focus on anti-corruption measures and will give consent to the CBI at the earliest.
