How Congress unraveled in Mizoram, its last bastion of power in Northeast

  • The Congress’ defeat in the Mizoram assembly elections in November 2018 saw the party losing its last bastion in the Northeast.
  • In the two years before that, the Congress had faced defeat in Assam, Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Manipur and Tripura too.
  • The drubbing in Mizoram, at the hands of the Mizo National Front (MNF), also proved to be a precursor of sorts to the party’s subsequent loss in the three tribal autonomous councils of the state — the Lai Autonomous Development Council (LADC), Mara Autonomous Development Council (MADC) and Chakma Autonomous Development Council (CADC).
  • These councils exist under the sixth schedule of the Constitution, which grants special safeguards to tribal areas.
  • Prior to this defeat, the Congress was the sole centre of power in Mizoram’s politics for half a decade, occupying a stunning 85 per cent of the assembly seats and holding the reins in all three autonomous district councils.
