Congress party, CADA react to court verdict, suspect foul play in acquittal of former ADC chairman

In a quick reaction to the judgment of the Special court (ND&PS), Manipur, where former chairman of Autonomous District Council (ADC) Chandel district Lhukhosei Zou was acquitted from the infamous the 2018 multi-crore drug seizure case, the Congress party in Manipur alleged that there is a big question mark on the BJP-led coalition government’s ongoing “war on drugs”.

Talking to reporters during a press conference here on Thursday, Manipur Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) spokesperson MLA K Meghachandra alleged that the verdict of the court had reduced the government’s war on drugs to a joke. He further alleged that, in the case, not only some high ranking officials of the police department but high profile politicians were involved.

Many civil society organisations have launched various forms of protests demanding justice in the case. Despite all these, the ADC chairman has been acquitted, the MPCC leader added.

Also, Coalition Against Drugs and Alcohol (CADA) strongly reacted to the verdict of the court while urging the government to appeal the order to a higher court.

In a statement, CADA alleged that people are now suspecting on how the main accused has been released after being acquitted.
