MNF-Cong coalition loses no-confidence motion in Mizoram ADC
Aizawl, Nov 25 (PTI) The Mizo National Front-Congress coalition in Mara Autonomous District Council was voted out of power in a no-confidence motion on Friday, an official said.
The no-confidence motion was moved by BJP member L Prisila on the last day of the three-day session, MADC Information and Public Relations Officer Beirokhu Beita said.
The council, one of the three ADCs in the southern part of the state, is headed by Congress member H Malvin as chief executive member (CEM).
While 15 members voted in favour of removal of the MNF-Congress combine, nine were against it, he said.
