On the 29th of June, we had published an article highlighting endemic corruption in Mizoram’s roads sector. Well, there is an update on the matter now. The CM’s brother, who had been accused of owning shares in a company getting road contracts, has finally responded. In a meeting yesterday with Congress party workers, he said he did not know he had shares in the company. That he got to know from the Scroll article.
Out today, our story on his defense.
ps: today, incidentally, is a personal milestone. ten years now, of quitting business reporting for development journalism.
