The meeting also witnessed the appointment of Rev. Lalnghakthang Hmar by vote as the new secretary of the organization.

Zo United’s primary objective is to bring together Zo-ethnic brothers and sisters residing in Manipur under one banner. The organization’s formation follows the unanimous decision made during the NGO Coordination Committee meeting in Mizoram, chaired by the President of the Central Young Mizo Association, on September 6, 2023. The organization hopes to address the core issues affecting the Zo community in Manipur, such as political representation, cultural preservation, and social welfare.
