No anti-Congress wave in Mizoram: Lal Thanhawla
Thanhawla said that AAP played the spoilsport for the Congress in Delhi.

Mizoram Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla said that he was confident he will get majority in the 40-member state assembly. The Four times Chief Minister also discussed on a varirty of issues including the anti-Congress wave in the country, the presence of AAP and the Mizoram elections.

Here is an excerpt from the interview:

CNN-IBN: Sir, your views as a veteran Congressman about the anti-Congress wave we have seen in the other states?

Thanhawla: There is no anti-Congress wave in Mizoram at all, there is a pro-Congress wave. Except in Rajasthan, there is not much of an anti-Congress wave in any other state. In Delhi, AAP played spoilsport for the Congress.

CNN-IBN: The MNF is confident that they are going to win about 22 seats, your views on that?

Thanhawla: They have their right to be confident, I have nothing to say about that.

CNN-IBN: In Mizoram, it is usually a very clean verdict, but for the first time I think we are in a situation where the Congress might not be able to make it.

Thanhawla: I can tell you that I am going to form a government again.

CNN-IBN: Do you think Rahul Gandhi's leadership has not really translated to votes for the Congress?

Thanhawla: This is just the first time he is being trained, I am not going to compare him to Narendra Modi, because he just started taking the mantle. It's yet to be tried, we shall follow him.
