AIZAWL, Aug 30: The opposition Zoram People’s Movement
(ZPM) in Mizoram announced that it will fight the assembly
elections in the state in an alliance with the Hmar People’s
Convention (HPC).
An agreement was signed between the two parties in
Sakawrdai village in the northeastern part of the state on

The HPC will extend full support to the ZPM in the assembly
polls, due to be held later this year, without fielding any
candidates on its own to ensure that the ZPM candidates are
elected to the state assembly, the agreement said.
Both the parties will also work together for the Sinlung Hills
Council (SHC) elections, which will be held next year, it said.
The ZPM will take steps to implement the Memorandum of
Settlement signed between the Hmar People’s Convention-
Democratic or HPC(D) and Mizoram government in April 2018 if
the party comes to power after the assembly polls, the
agreement said.
ZPM vice president Kenneth Chawngliana said HPC had signed
such agreements with several parties in the past but none of
them fulfilled the promises made.
HPC president Rohringa said that Hmar-dominated areas in
Mizoram have been deprived of development.
He urged party workers to give their best to ensure that the
alliance becomes fruitful. (PTI)
