Mizoram BJP organisational election cancelled due to bickering

Aizawl: Intra-party squabble forced the Mizoram unit of the BJP to cancel its organisational election, which was scheduled to be held on Friday.
General secretary of the Mizoram unit Chhanhima said while the present vice-president Chalngura Jahau was the most likely winner among four contenders, leaders from outside the state tried to install Prof John V Hluna as the state unit president without polling.
BJP members protested against this amidst slogan-shouting and said they want organisational election following which the polling officials left for Assam this morning.
Chhanhima said that no future schedule has been fixed as a detailed report of the developments would be sent to the party headquarters in Delhi.
Earlier, BJP national executive member Tapir Gau, who was appointed as returning officer and observer, failed to appear. (PTI)
