|Days of Congress in the country numbered: MNF|
AIZAWL, May 19 - Opposition Mizo National Front (MNF) chief Zoramthanga, today welcomed the results of the Assembly polls in the five States and said the days of the Congress in the country are numbered. The results were welcomed by the MNF as it clearly showed the people’s opinion, which is “anti-Congress”, Zoramthanga said.
The former Mizoram Chief Minister said he has already sent congratulatory letters to designated Chief Ministers – Sarbananda Sonowal of Assam, Mamata Banerjee of West Bengal and Jayalalitha of Tamil Nadu. Ruling Congress’s media department leader David M Thangliana opined that Congress’s debacle in Assam was purely due to anti-incumbency as the party had ruled for 15 years.
“It would rather be a miracle if Tarun Gogoi retained power for the fourth consecutive term,” Thangliana said, adding that different States have different priorities and situations which could not be compared to the political scenario in Mizoram. Mizoram Assembly polls are due in the later part of 2018. – PTI
