AGARTALA, November 11, 2018: Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Saturday night reaffirmed that there will be no government formed in Mizoram in upcoming election without BJP whatever might be the formulation of political equation by the pundits.
Speaking to the media, Deb said political landscape of Mizoram has been changing very fast and everyday there is a major development but BJP did not want to get into such cheap politics. However, BJP will play the role of catalyst this time in forming government in Mizoram leaving aside all campaigns against it.
“In the history of Mizoram this is for the first time Speaker of the existing assembly Hiphei left Congress and joined in BJP. The Home Minister Lalzirliana had resigned form the ruling congress and joined in opposition Mizo National Front (MNF), which is also a part of part of the North East Democratic Alliance (NEDA), a BJP-led conglomeration of anti-congress parties of Northeast,” Mr Deb underlined.
He pointed out that faced with large scale desertions; anti-incumbency and the growing influence of BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, congress has been trying hard to retain power in its last bastion in the Northeast but this will not happen this time.
“BJP is a new entry in Mizoram and in earlier occasions it was a game of two parties – congress and MNF along with some local party. If anyone desert the Congress had to be in MNF or vise-versa but now they all choice BJP only because of the leadership of Amit Shah and Narendra Modi,” Mr Deb argued.
The people of Mizoram must have realized by that time how fruit of development is reaching to Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Meghalaya, Nagaland and Tripura. In eight months old BJP-IPFT government in Tripura made the people believe after 25 yrs of communist rule there is governance and government is highly sensitive to people’s cause.
Whatever development programs and schemes have been launched by Narendra Modi government in last five years is highly beneficial for northeast region.
Unfortunately, the previous state governments of the region could not able to harness the potentials but now BJP ruled states trapping them systematically where Mizoram could also be a part, he added.
