KAMALANAGAR- The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJ ) in Mizoram’s Chakma Autonomous District Council has suffered another staggering blow as one of the only two of its remaining MDCs Mrs Kusum Lota Chakma has left the party (BJP) and joined the ruling Mizo National Front ( MNF ) on 8th September, Wednesday. Mrs Chakma’s exit has reduced the saffron party’s representation to just 1 (one), with Mr Shanti Jiban Chakma now left alone as the only BJP MDC in the 20-Member Chakma Council.
In her joining letter submitted to the party president, Mrs Chakma expressed willingness to join the ruling MNF party “for the welfare of the people of CADC in particular and the nation as a whole”.
“The BJP’s lotus began to wither away in the Chakma Council when six out of its eight elected members had tendered their resignations from the party and merged with the MNF en masse on 27th March, 2021, citing failure of the Central BJP leadership to fulfil any of their promises made to the people of Chakma Autonomous District Council”, a press release issued by MNF Media Cell said.
Mrs Kusum Lota Chakma is the lone elected woman member in the 10th Chakma Autonomous District Council. She was elected from 2-Borapansury-II MDC Constituency. [Ends].
