Centre slammed on appointment of Governor
Aizawl, March 16 - Mizoram Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla today slammed the Centre for its alleged high-handed attitude in axing and appointing State Governors.

�Our opinions might not be accepted, but the Centre, in those days had consulted or informed the State CMs on removal or appointment of Governors,� he said.
