NLD reopens party offices in Chin state


The offices of the National League for Democracy (NLD) in Chin state are being reopened to rejuvenate the party in Burmese politics after being suppressed for a long time under military rule.

The offices reopened are in Teddim, Ton Zang, Falam, Mindat, Kanpetlet, Than Tlang, Hakha, Matupi and Rih, sub-town in Falam, Chin state from the first week of last month, said Pu Van Lian, Chairman of the Chin state NLD.

The party is trying to reopen its office in Paletwa Town of Southern Chin state and the members of the NLD there are gearing up to open their office, said Van Lian.

Political activities of the Chin state NLD came to a standstill in 2003 under the oppressive Burmese military dictatorship, but now, the Chin state NLD is being rejuvenated after the central NLD became involved in Burmese parliamentary politics.

“We are organizing youths in the region of Matupi Township to take interest in our movement. But only a few Hakha youths are working for our party as most have left the town and some are busy with their jobs.

A prayer programme was conducted by the Chin state NLD yesterday in Hakha to celebrate the landslide victory of NLD in the Burmese by election held by the Burmese government.

The most representative seats were won and four constituencies were won by Chin state NLD in the 1990 Burmese general elections in 13 constituencies in the state. Khonumthung news
