TIL Desk/National/Aizawl/ Mizo National Front, a constituent of the BJP-led NEDA, dismissed saffron party chief Amit Shah’s remarks that the party will rule India for the next 50 years if it wins the 2019 general elections, saying he is not a God and the prediction is an exaggeration.
The principal opposition party in Mizoram is, however, confident that the Congress or the UPA will not come to power at the Centre in the next year’s general elections. Former chief minister and MNF chief Zoramthanga told in an interview that his party and the BJP can never be allies in the hill state because of the saffron party’s Hindutva politics.
“I doubt. He (Shah) is not a God. He cannot predict that in politics. Even Modi cannot predict that. That is his wishful thinking. Nobody can predict that,” he said, when asked about Shah’s claim of BJP ruling for the next 50 years. The Congress is not coming to power again in 2019 at the Centre and nobody can predict how many decades it will take to form the next government, the veteran politician from the north-east said.
