AIZWAL: The Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) is examining alleged malpractices in the lottery being run by the Mizoram government, officials today said.
The exercise was slated to be completed within two months as important documents had already been collected from the agency, Institutional Finance and State Lottery (IFSL), officials in the Principal Accountant General's office here said.
Opposition Mizo National Front (MNF) has alleged that crores of rupees were lost annually due to malpractices by government employees.
MNF had also alleged that Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla had accorded undue favour to a lottery agent after overruling the decision of the Mizoram State Lottery Committee (MSLC).
Lal Thanhawla has said there is nothing wrong in the state government running lotteries and expressed hope that the inquiry would bring out the truth.
