Lalduhoma’s story begins as an Indian Police Service (IPS) officer posted in Goa. His journey took a turn when he assumed the responsibility of then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s security in New Delhi. Transitioning into politics, he secured an MP seat for Mizoram in 1984 under the Congress banner. Later, he founded the Zoram Nationalist Party (ZNP) in 1997, becoming a vital player in Mizoram’s political landscape through ZPM.

Lalduhoma faced political turbulence in 1988 when he became the first parliamentarian disqualified under the anti-defection law. In 2020, a similar fate befell him in the Mizoram Legislative Assembly. Despite setbacks, he triumphed in a by-poll from the Serchhip assembly seat in 2021. In the 2018 Mizoram polls, Lalduhoma was designated as the CM candidate for the ZPM coalition.

Ahead of the vote counting, Lalduhoma participated in a special prayer at the Mizoram Presbyterian Church in Aizawl. Reflecting on the early lead, he expressed confidence, stating, “I am not surprised; this is what I expected.” The full results are awaited as the counting process unfolds.

The political journey of Lalduhoma, from his IPS service to navigating through controversies and emerging as a prominent CM candidate, adds a dynamic dimension to Mizoram’s current political landscape.
