Kamalanagar: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Mizoram’s Chakma Autonomous District Council‘s (CADC) one of the only two remaining MDCs Kusum Lota Chakma has left the party and joined the ruling Mizo National Front (MNF) on September 9, Wednesday.

Chakma’s exit has reduced BJP’s representation to just one, with Shanti Jiban Chakma now left alone as the only BJP MDC in the 20-Member Chakma Council.

In her joining letter submitted to the party president, Chakma expressed willingness to join the ruling MNF party for the welfare of the people of CADC in particular and the nation as a whole.

A press release issued by MNF Media Cell said that the BJP began to wither away in the Chakma Council when six out of its eight elected members had tendered their resignations from the party and merged with the MNF on March 27, 2021, citing a “failure of the Central BJP leadership to fulfil any of their promises made to the people of Chakma Autonomous District Council.”

Kusum Lota Chakma is the lone elected woman member in the 10th Chakma Autonomous District Council. She was elected from 2-Borapansury-II MDC Constituency.
