GUWAHATI: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is self-assured to fight all the 40 Assembly seats in Mizoram, but might forge an alliance with like-minded parties in a post-poll scenario.
Talking to the reporters on Wednesday, BJP general secretary Ram Madhav observed that the saffron party has been making concerted efforts to win the State, after having formed governments on its own or joining hands with allies in all other Northeastern States.

Madhav, who is the party in charge of the Northeast stressed that the BJP would field candidates in all the 40 Assembly seats in the State where elections are due in December.
Meanwhile, Madhav accused the ruling Congress, headed by Mr. Thanhawla — in power for 10 years — of being corrupt and inefficient. The Thanhawla regime did not develop any basic infrastructure during the last decade though the Centre initiated and funded several developmental projects, Madhav said.
It must be mentioned here that currently, Mizoram is the only State under the Congress in the Northeast.
