The Political Landscape

Mizoram has traditionally been a stronghold of the Congress party, with the Indian National Congress (INC) enjoying a long-standing presence in the state’s political arena. However, the 2018 Assembly elections saw the Mizo National Front (MNF) make significant inroads, raising questions about the party’s ability to maintain its grip on the state’s electorate.

Factors Behind the ZPM’s Victory

  • Strong Grassroots Network: The ZPM’s extensive grassroots network and its ability to connect with voters at the local level played a crucial role in its electoral success. The party’s focus on addressing the immediate concerns of the people, such as economic development and social welfare, resonated strongly with the electorate.
  • Effective Campaigning: The ZPM’s campaign strategy was well-crafted and targeted, effectively communicating the party’s vision and addressing the key issues that mattered to the voters. The party’s leadership also played a pivotal role in mobilizing support and building a strong connection with the people.
  • Anti-INC Sentiment: The INC’s perceived arrogance and lack of understanding of local issues created an anti-INC sentiment among the voters, which the ZPM was able to capitalize on effectively.
    Consolidation of Traditional Voter Base: The ZPM’s ability to maintain its core voter base, including the rural population and traditional supporters, contributed significantly to its electoral triumph.

Implications and the Road Ahead

The ZPM’s victory in Mizoram’s 2024 Lok Sabha elections has significant implications for the state’s political landscape and the national political scenario. The party’s dominance in the state strengthens its position as a major force in Indian politics, setting the stage for further consolidation of power at the national level.


Mizoram’s 2024 Lok Sabha elections have once again demonstrated the importance of local issues and grassroots politics in determining the outcome of elections. The ZPM’s triumph, driven by its focus on addressing the immediate concerns of the people and its effective campaigning, has sent a strong message to the INC and other national parties. As the party looks to the future, it will undoubtedly build on this success to further strengthen its presence and influence in Indian politics.
