Chief Ministers Of Meghalaya, Mizoram Meet Rajnath Singh, Urge Scrapping Of Citizenship Bill

All coalition partners from Meghalaya are against the Citizenship Bill, said Conrad Sangma.

New Delhi: 

As the northeast stands united against the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill 2016, two chief ministers from the region met Home Minister Rajnath Singh today to urge the centre to scrap the controversial bill. Conrad Sangma, who is heading the government in Meghalaya in alliance with the BJP, and Mizoram’s new Chief Minister Zoramthanga said there should not be any dilution of the 64-year-old Citizenship Act.

“We have expressed our concerns over the bill. All coalition partners from Meghalaya are against the amendment. We have urged the centre to reconsider its decision and not to go forward with the Bill,” Mr Sangma said.

All northeastern states are unhappy, and the Meghalaya cabinet has even passed a resolution opposing the bill, he added.

“It (amendments) should not be there. Let it be as it is. Let it not be amended as it is proposed. That’s what we want,” Mr Zoramthanga told reporters.

Mr Sangma said that the Home Minister has assured them that he will look into it and that he will also call a meeting with all chief ministers from the northeast.

Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh has already made it clear that the coalition government in the state led by the BJP will not support the passage of the Bill unless there is a provision for protecting the indigenous people of the northeast.

Several allies of the BJP have also made their opposition to the “discriminatory” bill known to the ruling party, but it maintained that the “bill is not any state or region specific, it is for the entire country”.

“We’re reaching out to our alliance partners who have expressed concerns over the bill, we’ll reassure them that interests of each and every state will be taken care of. We’re confident that those who have left will come back,” BJP’s troubleshooter and general secretary Ram Madhav, said referring to the Asom Gana Parishad’s (AGP) exit from the NDA over the bill.

Even though Mr Madhav accepted that some of the concerns are valid, he accused those opposing the bill of spreading misinformation.

The Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, which has triggered massive protests in the northeastern states, was passed in the Lok Sabha on January 8. The Bill seeks to amend the Citizenship Act, 1955 to grant Indian citizenship to the Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Pakistan who entered India before December 31, 2014.

In Mizoram, Women Voters Outnumbered Men. But Not A Single Woman Minister

Ms Lalhlimpui Mizoram’s first ever woman minister.


58-year-old Lalhlimpui was Mizoram’s first woman minister since it became a full-fledged state 31 years ago, under Laldenga.

In an interview to NDTV, Ms Lalhlimpui said, “When I took to politics, I was the only woman and till now not too many women have joined active politics. I think it’s in the mind of the women here that they are still not ready to be involved much in active politics.”

During the recent high voltage election season, what went unnoticed is that not a single woman candidate won in Mizoram, where female voters outnumbered the male.

In Mizoram, out of 209 candidates who contested in this election, only 16 were women and the state has had only had two women ministers in the last 31 years.

“First of all if we look at Mizoram, it’s a male dominated society and even in the church they play a key role, so the role of women is more on social issues on how to make the society better, then try out in politics,” said H Lalzuitluangi, political analyst from Aizawl.


Role of women is more on social issues, said political analyst H Lalzuitluangi.

The new Mizoram assembly will be an all-male affair as none of the women candidates won. Moreover, it seems that there is not much encouragement for them to join the Mizo National Front (MNF), the party that won the polls without a single woman candidate.

A young female student, who voted for the first time, said, “In my opinion, it is because our culture since we follow patriarchy and even in our society, a men are ranked higher than women in general, In the countryside, women are still thought to be only fit to be housewives.”

Another college student said, “Most Mizo people favour men. I think men are stronger and can take better decisions.”

Zoramthanga To Take Oath As Mizoram Chief Minister On Sunday

Zoramthanga had served as the chief minister from December 1998 to December 2008.


Mizoram Governor Kummanam Rajasekharan on Wednesday formally invited MNF president Zoramthanga to form the government in the state. He will be sworn-in as the chief minister at the governor house at 12 noon on Saturday, the local administration informed. It is not clear if his council of ministers will take oath with him.

Two-time Chief Minister Zoramthanga’s party stunned the ruling Congress as it bagged 26 seats in the 40-member assembly.  

The MNF is back in power after 10 years and its victory is being considered an early Christmas by party workers.

“I had predicted over 29 seats for MNF and less than 10 for Congress. My prediction has come true. Voters were fed up of the mismanagement of the Congress. The liquor issue also turned the church and civil society against them. Mizoram is a Christian state and we are a compact society so there is no space for BJP ideology,” MNF chief Zoramthanga told NDTV on Tuesday.

Zoramthanga had served as the chief minister from December 1998 to December 2008.

Exit polls that had indicated a hung assembly were also proved wrong and the old poll arithmetic of change of power every 10 years won.

The BJP opened its account for the first time in the state by bagging a seat while the Congress managed to win five seats in the assembly polls held on November 28.

While Congress sees gains in three of the five states where polling was held, its last bastion in the northeast crumbled like a pack of cards. Five-time Chief Minister Lalthanhawla also lost both the seats he contested.

The age-old party fell behind the newly floated Zoram People’s Movement (ZPM) that won eight seats. The BJP opened its account with a lone seat from a non-Christian seat.

“I don’t know what went wrong. I am disappointed. I think I underestimated the ZPM,” Lal Thanhawla told NDTV.

Zoranthanga Says, Prohibition On Liquor, Better Roads Are Priority In Mizoram

Will implement the Socio-Economic Development Programme, Zoramthanga said.


After leading the Mizo National Front (MNF) to power in Mizoram, chief minister-designate Zoramthanga today said he would impose total prohibition in the state as promised by his party.

Total prohibition was imposed in this highly-literate and Christian-majority state since February 20, 1997 by the then Congress government. However, it was lifted in early 2015 by enforcing the Mizoram Liquor Prohibition and Control Act, 2014. Following this, wine shops were opened in the state from March 16, 2015.

Speaking to reporters after his party won a landslide victory in the election to the 40-member state legislature by bagging 26 seats, Zoramthanga said his government would also ensure better roads and implement the Socio-Economic Development Programme (SEDP) the flagship programme of the party, to lift the state’s economy.

In the run up to the polls, liquor was a major political issue. While the Congress was against total prohibition, the MNF wanted a complete ban.

The BJP had taken a middle path by proposing to ban the liquor coming from outside the state and encourage only locally produced ones.

Election Results 2018 Ex Congress minister Buddha Dhan Chakma won single BJP seat in mizoram

Mizoram Election Results 2018: इस पुराने कांग्रेसी नेता ने रखी बीजेपी की 'लाज', मिजोरम में पहली बार खोला खाता

बीजेपी के लिए इकलौती सीट जीतने वाले पूर्व कांग्रेसी मंत्री बुद्ध धन चकमा (Buddha Dhan Chakma)

खास बातें

  1. मिजोरम में खुला बीजेपी का खाता
  2. पूर्व कांग्रेस के मंत्री ने जीती सीट
  3. कांग्रेस के मंत्री भी रह चुके हैं बुद्ध धन

नई दिल्ली: मिजोरम विधानसभा चुनाव परिणाम 2018 (Mizoram Assembly Election Results 2018) में मिजो नेशनल फ्रंट (एमएनएफ) ने कांग्रेस को पटखनी देते हुए बड़े अंतर जीत हासिल कर ली. एमएनएफ (MNF) ने बहुमत हासिल करते हुए 26 सीटों पर कब्जा किया और सरकार बनाने का दावा ठोका. जबकि कांग्रेस बुरी तरह से हारी और सिर्फ 5 सीटों पर ही जीत हासिल कर सकी. 10 साल बाद आई एमएनएफ पार्टी को 21 सीटों का फायदा हुआ, जबकि कांग्रेस ने 29 सीट गवाएं. इन सबमें सबसे चौंकाने वाली बात यह रही कि पूर्व कांग्रेस नेता बुद्ध धन चकमा (Buddha Dhan Chakma) ने पार्टी से इस्तीफा देकर बीजेपी ज्वाइन किया और फिर जीत हासिल करते हुए भाजपा के नाम एक ऐतिहासिक जीत दर्ज करवाई. जी हां, बीजेपी ने पहली बार मिजोरम राज्य में खाता खोला है.

बीजेपी के ‘चाणक्य’ अमित शाह को ऐसे मिला ‘चौथा झटका’, कांग्रेस मुक्त भारत का सपना हुआ चकनाचूर!


मिजोरम में भारतीय जनता पार्टी (BJP) के एकमात्र विजेता बुद्ध धन चकमा (Buddha Dhan Chakma) ने टुईचॉन्ग (Tuichawng) सीट से 11419 वोट प्राप्त किए. उन्होंने बहुमत हासिल करने वाली पार्टी मिजो नेशनल फ्रेंट (Mizo National Front) के नेता रसिक मोहन चकमा को 1594 वोटों से हराया. रसिक मोहन ने 9825 वोट हासिल किए थे. वहीं निवर्तमान रूलिंग पार्टी के नेता कलि कुमार टोंगचान्ग्या तीसरे नंबर पर रहे और चौथे स्थान पर नेशनल पीपुल्स पार्टी के डोयमोय देवेंग चकमा को सिर्फ 250 वोट मिला. कुल मिलाकर देखा जाए तो चकमा समुदाय में अच्छी पकड़ की वजह से बुद्ध धन चकमा को फायदा मिला.


बीजेपी में दो महीने पहले आए बुद्ध धन चकमा ने 16 अक्टूबर 2018 को कांग्रेस पार्टी से अलविदा लिया था. मिजोरम की बीजेपी ईकाई के अध्यक्ष प्रो. जॉन वी हलुना ने बताया था कि बुद्ध विधानसभा चुनाव में टुईचॉन्ग (Tuichawng) सीट से चुनाव लड़ेंगे, क्योंकि यहां उनकी दावेदारी ज्यादा मजबूत है. बुद्ध धन के बारे में बात करें तो उन्होंने 21 अगस्त, 2017 को मंत्रिपरिषद से इस्तीफा दे दिया था, क्योंकि चकमा समुदाय के कुछ छात्रों संग देशभर के मेडिकल कॉलेजों द्वारा प्रवेश के लिए भेदभाव किया गया; जबकि राज्य कोटा के अनुसार वह सभी एमबीबीएस के लिए योग्य थे.

Live Election Results 2018 Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Telangana, Chhattisgarh, Mizoram: Voting To Begin Shortly

Rajasthan, Telangana, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Mizoram Election Results Live Updates: Counting To Begin At 8 AM

Results 2018: Exit polls suggested a tough competition between Congress and BJP in Chhattisgarh

New Delhi: 

The results of assembly elections 2018 , which are seen as the semifinal before 2019 general election, will be announced today. The counting of votes will begin at 8 am. High voter turnouts were recorded in the five states – Rajasthan, Telangana, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Mizoram – that went to polls. An aggregate of exit poll results suggests that it would be a neck-and-neck contest between the Congress and BJP in Madhya Pradesh. In Rajasthan, it could be a decisive victory for the Congress, the exit polls said. In Chhattisgarh, the exit polls predicted a hung assembly. The Congress is likely to lose Mizoram and K Chandrashekar Rao’s TRS will retain Telangana, the exit polls say. After the exit poll predictions came out, political parties went into a huddle to devise strategies for post-election negotiations. On Monday, the BJP’s overture for alliance got shot down by Mr Rao’s party. The assembly polls 2018 were hard-fought elections, in which all the major political parties ran intense campaigns. In Madhya Pradesh, the fight is between Shivraj Singh Chouhan, the three-time Chief Minister, and the Congress team of Jyotiraditya Scindia, Kamal Nath and Digvijaya Singh. While Mr Chouhan talked about his government’s performance during campaign, the Congress leaders slammed him over the alleged Vyapam scam. In Telangana, the Congress-TDP partnership seeks to unseat K Chandrasekar Rao, the first Chief Minister of the state. Congress president Rahul Gandhi called Mr Rao’s party the B-team of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

In Rajasthan, the team of Sachin Pilot and Ashok Gehlot has led the fight for the Congress. It has attacked the BJP-led government for allegedly not developing the state. The BJP has pinned its hopes on Chief Minister Vasundhra Raje. In Chhattisgarh, the Congress hopes to unseat Raman Singh, the Chief Minister who is seeking his fourth term. The main issues here were Maoism, tribal welfare and development. Mizoram seems fated for a hung house, with exit polls predicting that the Mizo National Front (MNF) will trump the ruling Congress by a slim margin but fall short of the majority mark of 21 in the 40-member state assembly.

The elections in the states were fought on the national level as well. For the Congress, Rahul Gandhi campaigned extensively, attacking the BJP over the Rafale jet deal. Whereas the BJP, led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party chief Amit Shah, slammed the Nehru-Gandhi family, alleging it didn’t do much for the country.

While it’s great to see women voters coming out to vote more than ever before, it is sad to see the number of women candidates. It doesn’t represent the situation on the ground at all: Prannoy Roy

For the past two decades, Rajasthan has unseated the ruling party. Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje, who led the campaign for the BJP, would hope to change that. During campaign, the Congress had said that there was high anti-incumbency against Ms Raje’s government.

The exit polls have predicted a hung verdict in Chhattisgarh. If this happens, the Mayawati-Ajit Jogi alliance would become crucial for the formation of government in the state.

Chhattisgarh is witnessing a three-way battle, with the ruling BJP facing the Congress and the Ajit Jogi-Mayawati-led alliance. The Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party has fielded candidates in 66 of the state’s 90 constituencies.

The Congress, which dubbed the Madhya Pradesh polls a “make or break election”, claims it will win 140 seats. If they win, the Rahul Gandhi-led party will have to face the issue of who will be the Chief Minister of the state. Its three key leaders, Kamal Nath, Digvijaya Singh and Jyotiraditya Scindia, have earlier been at odds, though in this election they have projected a united front.

Rajasthan has not voted the same party to power for two consecutive terms in the last 20 years. The exit polls have brought good news for the Congress as most of the poll agencies predicted a win for the party.

In Chhattisgarh, Chief Minister Raman Singh is hoping for the fourth term. But the exit polls have predicted a hung verdict. The BJP will get 41 of the state’s 90 seats, while the Congress will win 42. The Ajit Jogi-Mayawati alliance will get 4 seats, the poll of exit polls said. The majority mark in the state is 46.

In Madhya Pradesh, the exit polls predicted a neck-and-neck fight between the BJP and its challenger Congress. The poll of exit polls said the BJP will get 110 seats in the state, while the Congress will get 109 seats. The halfway mark is at 115. Mayawati’s Bahujan Samaj Party will get 2 seats.

Exit polls results predicted a worrying outcome for the BJP in three heartland states, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan. An aggregate of exit polls shows the BJP’s winning streak is set to end in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, both heading for hung verdict.
