PM arrives in Mizoram today

By Correspondent

AIZAWL, Nov 15 � Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will arrive here tomorrow as the star campaigner for the Mizoram Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC). He is expected to reach the Lengpui Airport around 12 pm from where he will fly in a helicopter to the Thuampui Helipad. From there, he is expected to drive down to the Mualpui Stadium to address a Congress poll campaign meeting.

The Opposition parties have criticised the Prime Minister�s forthcoming visit as an election stunt. �He never visited our State as the Prime Minister, but only found time to come here on an election campaign. This is not expected of a Prime Minister of a country,� said a youth leader of the Mizo National Front (MDF) and seconded by the Mizoram People�s Conference (MPC).

AICC president Sonia Gandhi is scheduled to arrive here on Monday. She will go straight to Lunglei district for an election speech. AICC vice president Rahul Gandhi is also slated to visit the State next week, official sources said. It may be mentioned here that the AICC president�s last visit here was greeted with black flags carried by MNF youths who lined up the main thoroughfares of the city leading to the Mizoram Congress Bhavan.
