He said that the people of Mizoram has lost trust in the Congress government in the state.
Lalzirliana said that during the clash along the Assam-Mizoram border earlier this year, the Mamit Deputy Commissioner imposed Section 144 CRPC under the order of Chief Minister Lalthanhawla and he was not informed about it, even though he was the State’s Home Minister at that point in time and hence was thinking of quitting the party.
It may be mentioned that Lalzirliana had resigned from Lal Thanhawla cabinet on September 14, three days after he was served a show-cause notice by the party High Command because of alleged anti-party activities.
He was expelled from the party on September 17. Lalzirliana also resigned as a legislator on Friday and finally decided to join the MNF.
