Among all the five states in polls, Mizoram is the only Congress-led state with party leader Lal Thanhawla as the Chief Minister. While the party has been in power for two consecutive terms, it is striving for a third successive term against a predominant challenge from the Mizo National Front, headed by former Chief Minister Zoramthanga. Mizoram, is the last remaining bastion for the Congress in the Northeast. The state went to polls on November 28.
The election campaign in Mizoram, has always been a low key affair compared to rest of India or say even the Northeast. Known for free and fair elections, the Election Commission of India declared Mizoram a ‘Model State’ in 2013. But, this time things are slightly different. Political mudslinging is at its peak. And it is all centered on BJP and the NEDA
With the assembly elections, the final countdown to the 2019 Lok Sabha elections has begun. The results of the assembly polls in all five states, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Telangana, Mizoram and Chhattisgarh will profoundly determine the national mood.
Results for all 5 states will be declared on December 11
