Aizawl, August 06, 2012: The remark of Mizoram home minister R Lalzirliana to "forgive" Hmar Peoples Convention-Democratic (HPC-D) Chairman, H.Zosangbera who was arrested from Delhi Indira Gandhi International Airport on July 17, has attracted criticisms from other political parties in Mizoram.

On Monday, Zoram Nationalist Party (ZNP) leader R Lalawia said only the President of India can forgive a criminal officially.

The Mizoram home minister had given a statement in the state assembly recently.

R Lalzirliana said that the HPC (D) leader and his outfit will be forgiven any time they come back to the mainstream and even said that even the criminals can be forgiven.

Reacting to this comment, the ZNP leader it is surprising and embarrassing over the remark of Lalzirliana and said that it is not the state government and even not the Home minister who has the authority to forgive the criminals; it is only the President of India who can forgive the criminals.

"There is always the limit, and it is really a matter of shame that leaders of the state often speak of what is beyond their power," said the ZNP leader.
