Union sports minister Kiren Rijiju arrived in Mizoram on Wednesday to launch the campaign for the upcoming elections to 25-member Lai Autonomous District Council (LADC) slated for December 4.

Accompanied by BJP national spokesperson and Nagaland MLA Mmhonlumo Kikon, the Union minister arrived at Lengpui Airport and left for Mizoram’s southern most Sangau village in the afternoon.

“Reached Sangau in Lawngtlai District in the Southern most part of Mizoram to begin election campaign for the Lai Autonomous District Council election,” Rijiju tweeted.

Addressing a rally at Sangau, Rijiju said the BJP would make massive efforts to win the LADC polls.

He said the saffron party is giving equal importance to every election from the rural or local body to the parliamentary polls and is making massive efforts to win every poll.

“We will also make an all-out effort to bring a flying colour for the saffron in the upcoming LADC polls,” he said.

Party sources said the Union minister also visited several villages in Lawngtlai district on Wednesday.

He will witness the induction of a BJP-led government in Mara Autonomous District Council (MADC) in Siaha and address a function at the party office in Lawngtlai on Thursday, sources said.

Rijiju will leave for Delhi in the afternoon, the sources added.
