After Sunday's debacle, Congress hopes for the best in Mizoram
Aizawl,Dec 9: Congress party, which was badly beaten in all the four states where vote counting took place yesterday, looks for some relief in Mizoram.

Vote counting began in Mizoram on Monday morning.

In the Northeast region,Mizoram, Manipur, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya and Assam have Congress-led governments while Nagaland and Sikkim are UPA supporters.

Only Tripura has a non-UPA Left Front government.

Mizoram could provide solace tomorrow unless former chief minister Zoramthanga of Mizo National Front (MNF) beats the incumbents. One may reckon there may be pressure on the state Congress unit for this consolation prize. Lal Thanhawla, state chief minister, however, denied that there is any pressure.

"We are so insignificant that no one bothers us and we are in our own world so there was no pressure at all," said Lal Thanhawla. Mizoram poll is getting little coverage in electronic media.

If the Congress manages to make an edge in the state, the party will have a much-needed consolation.
