The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will contest in all the 40 seats for the upcoming Mizoram Assembly polls scheduled to be held on November 28 polls.
This was announced by BJP national president Amit Shah on Wednesday while addressing a huge gathering at Dengthuama Hall in Aizawl.
Addressing the kick-off function of Mizoram Pradesh BJP in Aizawl, Amit Shah snowballed allegations of corruption against the Congress Government in Mizoram, saying that “Lal Thanhawla-led Government has plundered crores of rupees granted by the (Narendra) Modi Government”.
“The BJP will contest the polls alone. We will neither form alliance with the MNF nor with any other regional parties. We will contest in all the 40 Assembly seats,” said BJP chief Shah.
Claiming that the saffron party will form the next Government in Mizoram, Amit Shah told the gathering: “I promise you that Mizoram will observe the coming Christmas under the rule of the BJP.”
Amit Shah said that the saffron party has made their presence known in all the seven States of Northeast except Mizoram, and that the next elections would tell a different story. “BJP will make a new Government in Mizoram which will usher in development and turn it into a corruption-free State,” Shah said.
Shah also said that the Congress party in Mizoram is in dilemma as its leaders have been leaving the party.
“Congress rule is by default a rule of corruption. Mizoram is different, the chief minister had taken the entire share and that makes his Cabinet angry. The leaders are leaving the party one by one,” Shah alleged.
Stating that the saffron party has done away with corruption in all the other States of the Northeast, he appealed to the people of Mizoram to give BJP a chance so that Mizoram could also be developed like other States of the country.
“The Chief Minister of Mizoram, Lal Thanhawla, has put on hold several schemes launched by PM Modi for the uplift of the poor, because he is afraid that the credit will go to Modiji,” Shah added.
“The corrupt policy of Lal Thanhawla’s NLUP has become a question and fearing backlash, he has renamed it as NEDP,” Shah said.
Amit Shah also alleged that Lal Thanhawla has squandered Rs 4400 crore which the Centre has allotted for the development of Mizoram. “Where has the fund gone? This is my question for the Chief Minister of Mizoram,” Shah added.
