Mizoram Home Minister R Lalzirliana Resigns, a Major Setback for Congress

Mizoram Home Minister R Lalzirliana Resigns, a Major Setback for Congress

Mizoram senior leader and state home minister R. Lalzirliana resigned as the member of the Lal Thanhawla cabinet.

This move has come as a major setback for the Congress party in Mizoram where the election approaches at the end of the year.

This decision of Lalzirliana comes after he was served a show cause notice by the MPCC (Mizoram Pradesh Congress Committee) accusing him of confusing party workers on September 11. Though Lalzirliana was the vice-president of the MPCC, he was served the notice over reports that he could join a rival party.

The show cause notice was served on Lalzirliana on Wednesday asking him to furnish his reply within Friday after he made statements about offers from various parties to join them and reports about him being in the list of official candidates of opposition Mizo National Front (MNF) for the upcoming election.

The 69-year-old, who represents Tawi seat in Aizwal, also held the charge of power and electricity, rural development and excise and narcotics portfolios and was the second most powerful person in the cabinet headed by chief minister Thanhawla.
