Mizoram Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla is facing allegations of being involved in corruption. In the list, one more allegation is made by the ZNP party and now it is demanding resignation of the CM.

Thanhawla owned a plot of land in Kolkata

The opposition Zoram Nationalist Party (ZNP) of Mizoram on Saturday demanded the resignation of the Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla.

The party claimed that the Chief Minister has a plot of land in Kolkata, but he is failing to give information about owning it.

ZNP Youth president Lalmuanpuia Punte told reporters that Lal Thanhawla owned a plot of land in Kolkata where he is constructing a building.

Punte alleged that while Lal Thanhawla registered the land in his name on August 30, 2013, he failed to mention it in the affidavit while filing nominations for the 2013 state assembly polls.

“The chief minister, while filing nominations on November 8, 2013, failed to give information about owning a plot of land in Kolkata which contravened section 125 A of the Representation of the People Act, 1951,” he said.

Lal Thanhawla could be disqualified for concealing information and should resign before the EC disqualifies him, Punte added.

This is not the first time when CM Lal Thanhawla pointed out for the alleged corruption he has done.

Before this, the Peoples Right To Information and Development Society Of Mizoram(PRISM) has accused CM of having disproportionate assets.

The Anti-corruption watchdog PRISM now a political party of the state has revealed shocking data that proves the claims right.

As according to the data collected by Peoples Right To Information and Development Society Of Mizoram(PRISM) the Chief Ministers’ total assets recorded before the 2003 assembly elections were 99 lakhs and three motor vehicles.

Later, his assets suddenly showed an increase of 123 lakhs as before the 2008 assembly elections his total assets were 222 lakhs and five motor vehicles.

The list does not end up here, as before the 2013 assembly elections his total assets has been astonishingly shot up to 669 lakhs.

In the same year, he became the ninth richest Chief Minister of the country. This sudden increase in a number of assets of the CM raised the question of him being involved in corruption.
