Congress Announces Candidates for Mizoram Elections; Rahul Gandhi Kicks Off Campaign

Aizawl: The Congress party has unveiled its list of 39 candidates for the forthcoming Mizoram elections. Mizoram Congress chief Lalsawta's name is prominently featured, as he has been selected as the candidate for Aizawl West-III. The announcement coincided with party leader Rahul Gandhi's two-day visit to the state to campaign for party candidates.

Mizoram is gearing up for single-phase elections on November 7, with the vote count scheduled for December 3, alongside Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Telangana, and Rajasthan.

Lalsawta, the chief of the Mizoram Congress Committee, has been fielded from Aizawl West-III (ST). The Congress party's other nominations include Lalnunmawia Chuaungo for Aizawl North-I (ST), Lalrindika Ralte for Hachhek (ST), Lalhmingthanga Sailo for Dampa (ST), and Lalrinmawia for Aizawl North-II.


On Monday, Congress MP Rahul Gandhi embarked on a visit to poll-bound Mizoram after a brief stopover in Tripura.

"Rahul Gandhi arrived in Mizoram from Delhi via a chartered flight. After a brief meeting with party leaders at the airport lounge, he headed to Aizwal for the election campaign in Mizoram," stated Congress Working Committee (CWC) member Sudip Roy Barman in Agartala.

"During the meeting, Rahul ji inquired about the situation of the people in Tripura and provided organizational recommendations. He will visit the state after the conclusion of the assembly elections in five states - Madhya Pradesh, Mizoram, Telangana, Chhattisgarh, and Rajasthan," he explained.

In Aizawl, Rahul Gandhi initiated a padyatra that drew enthusiastic crowds.

Upon arriving in Mizoram's capital, the Congress leader began his march from Chanmari junction, traversing the city's winding streets while being greeted by Congress supporters waving party flags. He waved at people on both sides, engaged in handshakes, and interacted with those who came to meet him.

His walk was slated to culminate at Raj Bhavan, covering a distance of approximately 4-5 kilometers, where he would address a rally near the governor's residence.
