president and his counterpart would be in poll-bound Mizoram on Tuesday to boost their parties chance in the November 28 election.

sources said Monday 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.

He would come to Aizawl from Vairengte and release the BJP's manifesto/vision document for the state before leaving for Delhi.

leaders said Monday that 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 November 28.

Mizoram is the only state where is in power in the North-East at present and hence its great challenge for the party to defend its fort.
