Crime spurt in NE under BJP: O Ibobi
BPR, 10th Apr: The flag hoisting ceremony of Oinam Nabakishore, who is the Congress candidate for Inner Manipur Parliamentary Constituency in the 17th Lok Sabha election, was held at his Ningthoukhong ward no. 7 residence on Wednesday.
During the ceremony, former CM and CLP leader O Ibobi, who attended as chief guest, alleged that there has been drastic increase in criminal incidents such as killings and corruption in the North Eastern states since the BJP came to power at the Centre.
Ibobi pointed out that the contents of the Framework Agreement which was signed between the government of India and NSCN (IM) when Narendra Modi became the Prime Minister are yet to be made public, thus creating a cloud of suspicion amongst the public. Forgetting that India is a secular country, BJP has indulged in many communal activities. In Manipur also, in two years of BJP rule their greatest achievement is raid at the MU and harassment of teachers and students, he claimed. Ibobi pleaded that instead of giving vote to such a party which does not respect public sentiment, public vote for the Congress. Andro Block Congress Committee also organised a political conference at Azad Higher Secondary School, Yairipok. Addressing the gathering, Ibobi Singh said that people are witness to division of different communities based on religion during the five-year rule of BJP at the Centre and two years in the state and party has no respect for other religion except Hindu. If BJP comes to power again, CAB would be passed and people will be forced to follow Hindu to convert India a Hindu only country, he said while maintaining that people of Andro did not elect Shyamkumar to support BJP’s Hindutva agenda. He then urged people of the constituency to teach a fitting lesson to Shyamkumar in the upcoming election.
While alleging that BJP is a political party excelled in unleashing propaganda but inefficient in work, O Ibobi Singh said that giving vote to BJP will not only face problem for the state but also pave way for extinction of indigenous people. Both events were also attended by MPCC president Gaikhangam, party MLAs and former legislators.
