Thangliana entered active politics in the year 2017 at ZPM party under the leadership of Lalduhoma.

During the 2018 assembly polls, a political novice Thangliana was named as the official candidate of ZPM for the Tuirial seat but had to contest as an Independent as the ZPM was yet to obtain party registration at that time.
