Aizawl: State BJP president Vanlalhmuaka on Tuesday blamed the Mizo National Front (MNF)-Congress coalition government in Mara Autonomous District Council (MADC) and said it was an ‘insult’ to the Mara people.

“The Mara people have no longer trusted the MNF or Congress. The people gave their mandate as per which the BJP won the largest seats. Giving the post of Chief Executive Member (CEM) to the Congress, which won only a few seats, against the will of the people, indicated that both parties (Congress and MNF) run for only power,” Vanlalhmuaka said while addressing a political session in Aizawl. 

The BJP president also called the MNF and Congress power hungry. “Every party has its own reasons for existence and establishment. But these two parties (Congress and MNF) have no principles, proper rules and regulations and they are power hungry,” he said.

Vanlalhmuaka claimed that BJP is making progress and many youths in Aizawl have joined the party because of their thirst for development.

He said that both the MNF and Congress had massively attacked the BJP during the election campaign. 

“MNF workers have been told to vote for Congress if they cannot vote for their own party candidate. Similarly Congress workers have been asked to vote for MNF if they cannot vote for their own party candidate during campaign for the MADC polls,” he said.

BJP’s lone MLA Dr. BD Chakma said that the Congress-MNF coalition government in MADC would not last long because the two are rival parties in the state. 

The MNF and Congress on Monday forged a post-poll alliance to form an executive body in the MADC.

As per the agreement, the Chief Executive Member (CEM) post and three Executive Member (EM) posts will go to the Congress besides one nominated seat, while the MNF will have the Chairman, Deputy CEM, Deputy chief whip and the remaining EM post besides two nominated seats. 

Earlier, the BJP had staked a claim to form an executive body for being the single largest party. Sources said that the MNF and BJP on Tuesday filed nominations for the Chairman post. 

Election of the chairman post will be held on Wednesday.
