MPCC observes Jawaharlal Nehru’s death anniversary

IMPHAL,27th May: Manipur Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) Saturday observed the 53rd death anniversary of India’s first Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru at Congress Bhavan here. Speaking at the occasion, MPCC president TN Haokip recalled the developmental initiatives taken up by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru for developing India and observed that without these contributions India would not be where it is today. Alleging Prime Minister Narendra Modi of failing to carry out his government’s 100-day programmes, he advised the BJP led coalition government in the state to refrain from repeating the same blunder.

Replying to posers from media persons regarding defection of some Congress MLAs to BJP, TN Haokip said that the party will never encourage defection. However, it could not keep such MLAs on hold if they are determined to desert the party for their own benefits. At the same time, the party is not losing hope because of such incidences as hardships lead to the path of happiness. TN Haokip and former CM O Ibobi led Congress MLAs and party leaders in paying floral tributes to the portrait of Jawaharlal Nehru.
