During his visit, Shah also inducted Buddha Dhan Chakma, a ruling Congress former minister who resigned from the state assembly on Tuesday. Moreover, the BJP office was also inaugurated by the national party chief, in the presence of BJP election in charge of Mizoram Himanta Biswas (Finance Minister of Assam), Nagaland deputy chief minister Y. Patton and other leaders.
At present, Mizoram is the only state in the Northeast region where Congress is in power. After the recent historic wins in Assam and Manipur elections, leaders of the BJP have been asserting that they would make all efforts to remove it from the power from the state to paint the whole North-Eastern states with the saffron colour.
Mizoram will go polls along with the northern state of Madhya Pradesh on November 28.
