Our leaders blessed MNF more than us, says Mizoram BJP chief

first_imgThe BJP’s Mizoram unit president, Professor J.V. Hluna, said on Wednesday that his party’s central leadership “blessed” the Mizo National Front more than the its own candidates in the State.The MNF had downplayed its association with the BJP through the North East Democratic Alliance, an anti-Congress front, to return to power after a decade by winning 26 seats in the 40-member State Assembly.“We expected five-seven seats but ended up with one. One of the factors was that our central leadership did not bless us properly and gave attention to the MNF. They dictated us instead of consulting us,” Mr. Hluna told The Hindu.Mr. Hluna, who forfeited deposit in the Tawi Assembly constituency, attributed the BJP’s poor show to Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla’s “manipulation” of the church and influential social NGOs.“Mr. Lal Thanhawla used the [former Chief Electoral Officer S.B.] Shashank issue to mobilise opinion against us. He made it seem like the BJP was behind everything that happened,” the State BJP chief said.Mr. Shashank was replaced by Ashish Kundra midway through the electoral process after a coordinated body of church-backed NGOs demanded his ouster for removing a Mizo IAS officer over alleged interference in the enrolment of the minority Bru voters. “Lal Thanhawla also mobilised the church against us. Church leaders made it seem that supporting the BJP was like converting from Christianity to Hinduism,” Mr Hluna said.last_img read more
