    BJP is negligible in Mizoram as it only had 0.37%. Fight is between Congress and MNF. Stop posting irresponsible articles. BJP is only in power in Assam ( coalition) and Tripura. In Arunachal it stole The mandate as it did in Manipur.. In Meghalaya it only has 2 seats. It does not hasn’t mandate
