Thenphunga Sailo, also known as Brigadier Sailo, formed a political party known as the People's Conference on April 17, 1974. In May 1978, a year after the Chhunga ministry resigned, the second general election for the Mizoram Assembly was held.The People's Conference (PC) won 22 seats out of the total 30 while the independent candidates and the Mizoram Congress Committee (MCC) shared 4 seats each. Brigadier T. Sailo was crowned as the second Chief Minister of Mizoram. The PC party, however, suffered from a major split in October 1978 when the ministry was capsized by 8 discordant MLAs who withdrew their support from the CM. According to Sailo loyalists, the split occurred due to the personal ambitions of the rebel MLAs, as they were dissatisfied for being including in the ministry. It was decided to form an alternative government of the PC and Mizoram was soon under President's Rule. N. P. Mathur was the then governor.
