Mizoram Assembly serves show cause notice to MLA

Aizawl, September 24 (PTI): The Mizoram Assembly on Thursday served a show-cause notice to an independent MLA following demands for his disqualification by the ruling MNF which alleged that he joined the opposition Zoram People's Movement (ZPM) violating the Constitution and the anti-defection law. Assembly Secretary H Lalrinawma told PTI that a show-cause notice was issued to independent legislator Lalduhoma, asking him to clarify why he should not be disqualified from the House.

Lalduhoma, who was elected as an independent from Serchhip constituency in the last Assembly polls held in November 2018, said that he did not violate the Constitution nor breached the anti-defection law. Since Tuesday, altogether 12 Mizo National Front (MNF) members have written to Speaker Lalrinliana Sailo demanding cancellation of his membership claiming that he had joined the ZPM, which was manifested by his actions.
