Unexpectedly, arch rivals Congress and BJP formed alliance to rule the CADC.

After days of speculation, on 2nd May, the Governor of Mizoram invited the traditional rivals the BJP and the Congress to form government in the Chakma Autonomous District Council (CADC) in Mizoram. Governor Lt Gen (retd) Nirbhay Sharma invited the United Legislature Party (ULP), an alliance of the BJP and the Congress, to form the executive committee and appointed ULP leader Shanti Jiban Chakma of the BJP as the Chief Executive Member of the Council.
