Speaking at the induction service, Chhuanawma welcomed the 9 MDC for joining the ZPM party saying, “We induction you into Zoram People’s Movement party to join in the development of a corrupt free state.”

“When ZPM won the 2023 MLA General Election, and LADC was then not in a situation to form a solid government, our party could have easily formed a government. Since we do not want to repeat precious government’s misuse of power in District Councils, we refrained from such activities,” he added.

W. Chhuanawma also called on the people of Lawngtlai to vote for Zoram People’s Movement party in the upcoming By-election and Village Council Election saying, “If ZPM gets elected in the upcoming VC and By elections, we will form a reliable and steady government in the Lai Autonomous District Council.”
