MNF wants to end favouritism, if voted to power
Aizawl: To put an end to nepotism, opposition Mizo National Front (MNF) has promised voters that recruitment for all government jobs would be made through employment exchanges, if the party is voted to power in the forthcoming Assembly Elections to be held on November 25.
MNF leaders said on Tuesday that they would stop the practice of recruiting youths for government service on the basis of recommendations made by politicians and government officials.
The MNF leaders, former ministers R Lalthangliana and Liansuama and former legislator Lalchhandama Ralte, also assured voters that Lokayukta, an anti-corruption authority at the state level, would be set up which would be empowered to investigate government employees and public servants, including Chief Minister and ministers.
The party, they said, would also work for unification of the ethnic Mizos and apologised for the resolution passed in the Assembly for fencing the Mizoram-Myanmar international border during MNF rule.
The opposition party also promised to scrap the existing `life-time payment` of vehicular road tax being imposed by the present Congress government which, they said, was a "heavy burden" on vehicle owners and the common man.
