BJP promises good roads in Mizoram

By CORRESPONDENT

AIZAWL, Nov 18 - Of the many needs of Mizoram, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh found road connectivity as a sector that needs immediate attention.

Singh, who visited two district headquarters � Siaha in southernmost Mizoram and Mamit in western belt and Chakma autonomous district council headquarters Chawngte on Friday, said Mizoram will have proper roads within six months if the BJP comes to power.

�The BJP, if elected to power, will build highways and mend roads in the State within six months. The poll-bound State probably has the worst road infrastructure in the country even after a decade of Congress rule,� Singh said.

Singh also accused the Congress of giving step-motherly treatment to the Northeastern States, including Mizoram for so many years. �The BJP is keen to develop the region and the BJP-led government has been taking utmost efforts to do so,� he said.

Addressing public rallies at Siaha, headquarters of Mara autonomous district council, and Chawngte, headquarters of Chakma ADC, the Union Minister also promised that the Centre would ensure passage of an amendment to the Sixth Schedule of the Constitution, providing more power to the autonomous district councils of Mizoram.

�If the two BJP nominees in the Mara Autonomous District Council (MADC) are elected to power, the BJP-led NDA Government at the Centre will be able to push for an amendment to the Sixth Schedule of the Constitution to ensure more autonomy to the district councils,� he said.

Under the Sixth Schedule, the Constitution gives special provisions to the administration of tribal areas in the four Northeastern States of Assam, Mizoram, Meghalaya and Tripura.

BJP has fielded veteran politicians Hiphei and S Vadyu in Mara-dominated constituencies of Palak and Siaha respectively. Hiphei, Assembly Speaker in the incumbent Congress Government, resigned early this month and joined the BJP.
