Yesterday BJP sources said that Shah would arrive at the Lengpui Airport near Aizawl and visit southernmost Mizoram’s Lawngtlai, Myanmar-border Champhai and Assam border Vairengte by helicopter where he would address public rallies.
Congress leaders said Monday that Rahul Gandhi would land at the Lengpui Airport by a special flight from where he would go to Champhai to address an election rally and return to Aizawl to address a public meeting later.
Police said that security was beefed up in view of the visit of the two leaders who are both classified as ‘Z-plus category’.Election to the 40-member Mizoram Assembly is scheduled for 28 November.
Mizoram is the only state where Congress is in power in the North-East at present and hence its great challenge for the party to defend its fort.
