Mizoram Debate

Aizawl, Nov 01: The Mizoram People’s Forum (MPF) and the Local People Forum (LPF) of Aizawl North-III (ST) Assembly Constituency recently organized a crucial debate ahead of the forthcoming Mizoram assembly election. This event brought together the six candidates vying for the Aizawl North-III Assembly Constituency, providing a platform for them to present their party’s agendas to the electorate.

Each candidate was given a 15-minute slot to share their political manifesto and vision with the audience. F Lallura, Chairman of the Local People Forum common platform Aizawl North-III (ST) Assembly Constituency, highlighted the uniqueness of this event, emphasizing that it allowed direct communication between candidates and voters.

Union Minister of Earth Sciences, Kiren Rijiju, expressed his confidence in the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) securing victory in the upcoming Mizoram elections scheduled for November 7.

He believed that the BJP’s presence in the legislative assembly would significantly contribute to Mizoram’s development and progress. Additionally, Rijiju pointed out that a BJP win in Mizoram would result in a “double-engine government,” both at the central and state levels, which he believed would be beneficial for the state.

On October 30, the Congress party, aiming to regain power in the northeastern state, pledged to introduce a new Bill aimed at safeguarding land, forests, and tribal rights during the first session of the new Mizoram Legislative Assembly. This announcement signalled the party’s commitment to addressing important issues and concerns in Mizoram.
