Aizawl: Mizoram chief minister and Mizo National Front (MNF) president Zoramthanga on Tuesday took a dig at Congress over the party influence in the entire country.
Addressing a function to celebrate 58th birth anniversary of MNF, Zoramthanga said Congress’s political surge is waning in the country as well as in Mizoram.
“The Congress has completely lost its ground almost every where. Despite forming a search committee the party failed to find a competent leader to head it and out of desperation it has renominated Sonia Ganddhi for the party president,” he said.
Taking a dig at state Congress headed by Lal Thanhawla, Zoramthanga said it is living at the mercy of the party at the Centre. “The influence of Congress is waning in the state as the party at the centre is declining,” he said.
He said the Congress has ruled Mizoram for many years but never worked for the state with a sense of ownership.
The three-time chief minister also said that main opposition Zoram People’s Movement (ZPM) is facing internal crisis due to its transformation into a single political party.
The MNF on Tuesday celebrated its birth anniversary in different parts of the state.
The main event was held at the party office in Aizawl in the presence of party president and chief minister Zoramthanga.
Zoramthanga said that his party will continue to shine with the help the almighty.
He said that his government has began implementing state flagship programme –Socio-Economic Development Policy (SEDP).
