today said that would be freed from the Congress' grip when the state goes to polls during the later part of this year.'

Madhav said is the only northeastern state where BJP is yet to have its share of power.

Addressing a press conference here, he said the saffron party was preparing its rank and file in to face the upcoming polls and a massive election campaign would be launched from August, after the monsoon gets over.

When asked if the BJP would forge pre-poll alliance with regional parties as was done in other northeastern states, he said the BJP has the (NEDA), an alliance of all regional parties in the region, in which the Mizo (MNF) is also a constituent.

"Even as the NEDA is more of a 'development alliance', it can be an electoral alliance - which time will tell," he said.

Former state minister and Meitei Nationalist Party (MNP) had earlier held that his party would not forge any pre-poll alliance but face the election to the 40-member state legislature on its own.
