Mizo National Front Walks Out During Governor Address

Aizawl, Mar 13 : Opposition Mizo National Front (MNF) and its ally the Mara Democratic Front legislators on Tuesday staged a walkout during the address of the Mizoram governor Vakkom Purushothaman.

About 10 minutes after the governor began his customary address and was talking about the success of the New Land Use Policy, the flagship programme of the ruling Congress, R Lalthangliana, leader of the opposition group and other party legislators stood up and objected.

Lalthangliana said while the state government claimed that the NLUP fund allocation was from the Prime Minister's Special Package, in reality it was made from the state plan fund.

He said the 'diversion' of the plan fund was detrimental to a number of developmental projects in the state.
