Mizoram Elections 2013 Result

As Predicted the Congress part won the Assembly Elections in Mizoram, here are a few statistics on the results.

  • Age: Average age of Candidates is 54.46, The youngest 39, the Oldest 74
  • Wealth : 62% of the candidates have assets of 1 crore or more.
  • Education: 80% of the elected candidates are Graduates and above which could hopefully result in better legislation. Almost 30% of the Candidates have Masters degree and above.
  • Criminal Cases: 0 % of the candidates have have criminal cases which could be a record to emulate in India.

The Congress Party has put in their Manifesto very important Objectives, among which there are important Infrastructure Projects that  the people of Mizoram would expect them to accomplish within the next 5 years.

1. Tuirial Hydel Project- Even though the Project is not completed, it is in progress and is expected to be completed in 2015. They have initiated other Hydel Projects like Tuivai Hydel Projects, Kolodyne Hydel Projects etc which are yet to start groundwork.
2. Medical College- Work is not yet initiated, the MNF party made major subcontracts to their own party men which left it with substandard Infrastructure. Also application for Medical College is a tedious process requiring approval from MCI etc. However they have completed the building for the Nursing College.
3. Education- There have been issues with delay in receiving Salary which could be due to fiscal mismanagement. Some grant in aid schools have been closed. They have initiated an Education commission with noble ideals but much is to be implemented. IIMC has established in Mizoram University. NIT is still running in a rented place in Chaltlang waiting for their campus to complete construction near Lengpui Airport. The Law College building is also still in a rented place and construction of campus in Luangmual is yet to be completed. Universal Elementary Education.
4. Roads - The Roads are in bad condition, mostly due to Monsoon as well as due to road widening. Poor road conditions would be one of the weak points of the congress government, of which the portfolio is being held by the CM.
5. Railways- The railway line from Bairabi to Sairang is yet to start due to compensation issues. 
6. Aizawl Convention Centre
