Congress MP Rahul Gandhi while attending a public gathering at Lunglei district of Mizoram asserted that voting for Mizo National Front (MNF) or Zoram People's Movement (ZPM) is like voting for the BJP.
Addressing the gathering, Rahul Gandhi said, "BJP knows if either of the party rules Mizoram their work can continue in the state."
Rahul Gandhi urged the people of the state to realize that BJP works for the long term. Hence a vote to the MNF is actually a vote to the BJP and it is the same as these parties will deal with the saffron party.
