Aizawl, Mar 9 (UNI) The Mizoram unit of the Congress has wrested power from the incumbent Mizo National Front (MNF) in the just-concluded Chakma District Council elections in the state.
The Congress has won 10 seats against MNF's six seats, while one seat is likely to go for a re-poll due to some alleged irregularities, sources said.
''The results of the Chakma District Council elections reflect the downfall of the ruling MNF in the entire state. Now, people have realised how corrupt the MNF has been and they denounce it with their votes. The Chakma polls predict the forthcoming state Assembly polls,'' Congress MLA Zodintluanga observed.
The previous Chakma council was headed by the MNF.
The Congress Legislature Party, which held a meeting today, appointed Kali Kumar as Chief Executive Member (CEM) and Satin Kumar as the Chairman.
