In poll-bound Mizoram, with an aim to win absolute majority and form the government there, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)’s campaign will being on October 17.

Mizoram is the final frontier for the BJP to claim and fulfill its target of a Congress mukt Northeast. On October 17, the BJP president Amit Shah will inaugurate the party office at Aizawl and address booth-level workers on that day to prepare them for the ensuing polls scheduled for November 28 next. Sources from the BJP informed that around 1500 booth-level workers are expected to attend the meeting.

BJP has decided to contest the elections on its own and not form a pre-poll alliance with any party. However, sources say that if the party falls short of the adequate number of seats required to form the government, it can form an alliance then with the party that may claim to form the government.

Meanwhile, The opposition Mizo National Front (MNF) which is a member of the BJP-floated platform of non-Congress parties –– the North East Democratic Alliance –– has announced that it will not have any electoral understanding or seat-sharing arrangement with the BJP.

On the other hand the Mizoram Congress will have at least 10-12 new and young faces in place of its sitting MLAs as party candidates. Sources informed that almost 30 per cent of the sitting MLAs may not get tickets as the Congress there is looking to build a young team.

It is worthy to be mentioned here that for the first time in Mizoram, the Congress is selecting candidates in two stages. In the first stage, the nomination committee will prepare a list of probable candidates and in the second stage, the screening committee will select the names of the final 40 candidates.
