AIZAWL, Jan 24 (Newmai): Barely a week after a government servant, who filed criminal complaint against Mizoram chief minister Lal Thanhawla over “false affidavit” controversy, the ruling Congress on Wednesday posed counter attack against him saying the allegation was politically motivated.
Speaking to reporters at a press conference here, Congress Media department chairman, James Thanghmingmawia said the complainant Lalhriatrenga Chhangte alias Hriata Chhangte, deputy controller of mines in India Bureau of Mines, was motivated by personal grudges against the chief minister Lalthanhawla because the latter had defeated Chhangte’s elder brother, Senior Advocate C. Lalramzauva, three time in the state polls from the Serchhip constituency. He also accused Chhangte of making baseless allegation against the chief minister to distort the latter’s image.
Thanghmingmawia said that Chhangte had filed complaint with the ECI accusing the chief minister of violating Representation of People’s Act, 1951.
Rejected by the ECI, Chhangte again filed criminal complaint against Lal Thanhawla at a local court in central Mizoram’s Serchhip town and hired his brother Lalramzauva as his personal advocate.
Despite filing a case in a law court and not patient enough to wait for the verdict, Chhangte faced media in a press conference which means he has vested political interest to distort the reputation of Lal Thanhawla. It was with a motive to let his brother, who is likely to contest, win next assembly elections that Chhangte rains huge attack on Lal Thanhawla, Thanghmingmawia alleged.
Denouncing the allegation leveled by Chhangte that Lal Thanhawla filed “false affidavit” by concealing information about his land ownership in Kolkata, at the time of filing nomination for the 2013 election, Thanghmingmawia reiterated that the chief minister did not declare in his affidavit about owning a plot of land in Kolkata as he has not yet obtained full ownership over the land while filing the nomination.
He claimed that the chief minister obtained legal ownership of the land only after the assembly polls and that he did not file false affidavit.
Chhangte has been accusing Lal Thanhawla of concealing information about him owning a land in Kolkata, where he is constructing a multi-storey building, in his affidavit while filing nomination for the 2013 assembly polls.
Following this Chhangte filed criminal complaint with chief judicial magistrate at Serchhip district court on January 17.
