Mizo Church panel appeals for Godly candidateMizarom, February 13, 2013: A church panel in Mizoram has appealed to the people to pray fervently so that a candidate “chosen by God” is elected in the upcoming assembly bye-elections in Chalfilh constituency of the state.

The Mizoram Kohhran Hruaitute Committee (MKHC), a committee comprising leaders of the 13 major churches of the state, has issued the appeal.

The MKHC appealed to all candidates and political parties to ensure a free and fair election by refraining from using militant groups, weapons, intimidation, and money and muscle power.

The conglomerate of church leaders also urged the campaigners not to canvass in such a way as to create enmity among the ethnic Mizos and among different church denominations.

“We should not indulge in mudslinging on individuals and opposing political parties, which could result in a law and order problem,” the message said.

Of the 29 polling stations, 13 stations in the Chalfilh constituency were declared sensitive and elaborate security arrangements were made, while security was beefed up in the border areas with Myanmar and Manipur.

C. Zorammuana, deputy inspector general (Northern Range), said that Assam Rifles, deployed along the northeastern border areas, have already been alerted to seal the border so that unwanted elements cannot enter the state.
