KS Thanga former Congress minister joins ZPM

Aizawl: Former Mizoram agriculture minister and senior Congress leader KS Thanga, who quit his party in June, formally joined the Zoram People’s Movement (ZPM) on Thursday, sources in the ZPM camp said.

He was inducted into the ZPM during a campaign kickoff programme for the assembly polls held at Vanapa Hall here, sources said.

Thanga resigned as a primary member of the Mizoram Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) on June 9.

He was a member of Congress’s Political Affairs Committee (PAC), which was recently dissolved by Lalsawta.

In his resignation letter, Thanga had pointed out seven reasons for his resignation as the primary member of Congress.  He criticised Lalsawta for allegedly not following the party constitution and acting unilaterally.

He had also accused Lalsawta of forcing Lal Thanhawla to resign as the party chief in 2021 before the expiry of his term.

Thanga joined the Congress in 1994 and was elected for two consecutive terms between 2008 and 2018.
