Congress Parliamentary Party chairperson Sonia Gandhi last Wednesday had appealed to the people of Mizoram to elect her party in the November 7 assembly polls, saying this is no time for experiments and a vote for the Congress is one for peace, progress and prosperity in the northeastern state.
Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge on Sunday appealed to the people in Mizoram to vote for his party, saying while the Congress had helped bring peace and stability to the state, the BJP and the RSS were “hell-bent on destroying” the Mizo culture and its way of life.
