Aizawl, Oct 28: Mizoram Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) chief Lalsawta on Saturday said that his party will come to power in the forthcoming assembly polls slated for November 7.
Addressing a public meeting at Maubawk within Aizawl West-III constituency in the southern part of Aizawl where he is contesting, Lalsawta said that as per a report of the party’s progress he received from different parts of the state, it is very clear that the Congress will come to power in the upcoming assembly polls.
“Looking at the reports we receive from different parts of the state the Congress will certainly come to power with the help of God and the people,” the 77-year-old Congress leader said.
He said that the BJP should be immediately unseated in the country.
The Congress president alleged that India is in a position of being completely destroyed because of the BJP policy to establish a Hindu kingdom.
He said that the RSS and Bajrang Dal are key associates of the BJP.
He also alleged that the ruling Mizo National Front (MNF) is an ally of the BJP.
MNF is part of the BJP-led North East Democratic Alliance (NEDA) and an ally of NDA at the Centre.
But the party doesn’t work with the BJP in Mizoram.
Lalsawta said that the Congress will create 1 lakh jobs for unemployed youths if it comes to power.
If it comes to power, the Congress government will also provide health insurance cover of Rs 15 lakhs to each family for cashless treatment in hospitals, given that they do not have a member who is a regular government employee, he said.
Besides, the Congress government promised to make a budgetary provision of Rs 5 crore every year, for providing assistance to patients undergoing treatment for cancer and other serious ailments.
As mentioned in party, Lalsawta said that the Congress, if it comes to power, promised to provide an old-age pension of Rs 2,000 per month, and LPG cylinders at Rs 750 for Antyodaya Anna Yojana and Priority Household and Below Poverty Line families headed by women and assistance of Rs. 2,000 per month to widow and disabled persons under National Social Assistance Programme.
