Mizoram: CM advised to congress worker 'Be silent on the liquor policy'

Posted on 18th Jul 2015 05:17 am by rohit kumar verma

On friday, In Aizwal CM said in weekly political session at congress bhavan that “Prohibition has already been lifted, so from now on we should remain silent on the issue. Let it go on as it is and if it creates problems, then our leaders can always review it,”. The CM's statement comes after the next day when the two top congress spokesperson quit as the publishers party's, after controversial mouthpeice questinnaire that that targeted pastors over the state’s liquor policy, Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla instructed all party workers to be silent over the government’s lifting of prohibition.



However, by the resources report the Church and the Congress government in Mizoram have collided over the lifting of 18 years of prohibition, but it has been community-based organisations and neighbourhood groups who have been at the forefront of a movement to not allow the opening of liquor retail outlets across various towns and parts of Aizawl city.



While Congress leaders, including the CM himself have occasionally targeted the Church over it’s stated opposition to liquor sales.



However the CM and the congress leaders occasionally targeted the church over its opposition, regards liquor sales. This matters opens up more fire when party mouthpiece published the statement that immediately caused heated public discussion — the questionnaire asks readers to name pastors who have been criticising the Congress government over the lifting of prohibition.




It also leaves space to mark the pastors’ current place of posting, and also carries seven options where readers can mark where and at which platform the pastor made adverse comments against the party or the government. Two top party spokespersons quit from their posts as publishers of the mouthpiece on Thursday saying publishing the questionnaire was not a decision taken by the party but by those handling the mouthpiece’s publication.
