Aizawl, Sept 25: Former Health Minister and MNF Vice president R. Tlanghmingthanga today hit out at Congress accusing the latter of buying votes for the upcoming MDC polls to Lai Autonomous District Council (LADC) by offering employment on muster roll basis.
Speaking to media in a press conference at Mizo Hnam Run today, R. Tlanghmingthanga dig at Congress by underlining the various fouls and misconducts committed by the ruling party under the government of LADC.
He alleged that the ruling Congress ahead of the MCD polls to LADC has been offering muster roll employment under the government which was apparently done to buy votes for the forthcoming election slated for November next.
“Despite being no necessity under the LADC government, Congress has offered employment in the area as a result of which over 192 muster roll employees have been recruited so far. The recruitment was done apparently for buying votes for the upcoming polls”, he said, adding that the fake muster roll recruitment which State Finance Minister Lasawta had once said that they will keep a check on it within Aizawl is now shifted to Lawngtlai by the same government.
R. Tlanghmingthanga also accused the ruling Congress government of conducting wrongful recruitment for a Middle school in Lai district council involving crores of rupees. He pointed out that some of the recruited teachers when investigated were found to be variedly aging 2 – 9 years. “They are the youngest employees ever recruited under Mizoram government. The matter has been referred to ACB and is now under trial in a judicial court”, Tlanghmingthanga said.

MNF Vice president alleged that the costliest school building in Mizoram has been constructed in Lai district council by Congress. According to him the state government has sanctioned money from NLCPR fund for the construction of 8 Middle Schools and 12 Primary Schools with an estimate of Rs. 22,65,000 for one school building. Most of the buildings were constructed smaller than or not in relation to the plan for which it is likely that about Rs 1,50,00,000 is going to be lost from now without any result .
R. Tlanghmingthanga further alleged that many constructions under LADC government which involved crores of rupees were missing without the actual construction being happened. He said that the work order for various contracts that worth crores of rupees were issued without indicating the specific location where to be built. “Where are the constructions made or at which location they are built”, R.Tlanghmingthanga questioned.
