By Chin Sian Thang

The following is a gist of the campaign speech made by Chairman of the Zomi National Congress (ZNC) Pu Chin Sian Thang through the Voice of Myanmar and the Myanmar Television Programme today.

He said that his party’’s four major policies are to refer to the Chin as Zomi, to work for the emergence of a genuine democracy, to practice free economic system and to raise the Panglong spirit.

He declared that historically, the Zomi nationals lived in their own land in their own way and customs as a sovereign entity. They have been independent and lived in their own way. Also in those days they called themselves Zomi, he added.

In modern history, he said, the Zomi became British slaves four years later than other Union nationals. Also in those days the referred themselves to as Zomi and not Chin. The word, “Chin,” is not part of the Zomi lexicon. Neither is the term found in the dialects of Paletwa, Matupi, Thantlang, Haka or Falam-Tedim dialects, he asserted.

He said the term, “Chin,” was given to them by colonialists behind their back. In other words, it is a term they got after becoming slaves. It is not their original name. Yangon has always been Yangon even before 1824. Just we as you do not want Yangon to be called Rangoon, we do not like to be called Halkha instead of Haka, Tiddim instead of Tedim, Siyin instead of Sihzang and Sun Pek instead of Con Bik. To call ourselves by our original name of Zomi instead of Chin is our first policy, he said.

He went on to said that their second policy was emergence of a genuine democratic government. Everybody shouted, ‘democracy. ‘democracy’. Why? Because democracy accepts the concept of equality. Every body is equal before the law. So everyone gets equal rights. These are the right to live, the right to think and create, the right to freedom of expression and assembly and the right to pursuit of happiness. There are our birthrights of basic human rights. These rights can be granted only by the genuine democratic government, he explained.

What is a genuine democratic government? He asked. It is a government of the people by the people and for the people. In other words the people have the most power. The power obtained from the people or the power freely given by the people is people’s power or democratic power or genuine democratic government, he answered. Therefore, the Zomi National Congress has a responsibility for the emergence of a genuine democratic government.

Our country, he said, is full of natural recourses. In our country like this only the government should not be permitted to develop the country. If qualified citizens are permitted to freely engage in businesses, development will be quicker. So the third policy of ZNC is adopt Free Market Policy to make competition possible in trade and commerce.

The Zomi nationals were the first sign the Pang long Agreement. We did this of our own free will. We could have attained statehood at that time. But since we supported the formation of the Union so much, we had chosen to remain simply as a special division. When the Union was on the brink of disintegration after we regained our independence and when it was called the Yangon Government, the Zomi nationals were a race that the protected the Union with our lives and our blood, recalled the ZNC Chairman.

The raising of the Panlong spirit for the perpetuation and steadfastness of the Union which was formed with the heart is the fourth policy of ZNC, he concluded.
