Aizawl: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) announced the candidacy of 23 individuals for the upcoming state elections. This announcement was made through the party’s official Twitter platform during a special programme hosted at the BJP general headquarters in Aizawl on Wednesday.
Among the BJP’s candidates is former Speaker of the Mizoram Legislative Assembly and MNF MLA Lalrinliana Sailo, who will contest from the Mamit constituency. Sailo’s seasoned political background and leadership experience are expected to make this constituency a keenly contested one.
Another prominent figure, former Social Welfare Minister Dr. K Beichhua, has been nominated to contest from the Siaha constituency. Dr. Beichhua’s track record of consecutive victories in this constituency adds an intriguing dynamic to the upcoming elections.
While the three leading parties in Mizoram, namely MNF, Congress, and ZPM, have nominated two women candidates each, the BJP has put forward a slate of four women candidates.
