Former Speaker says BJP government treats opposition MLAs as enemies
Pothashang News Service: Imphal, December 28, 2018: Former Manipur Speaker and Congress MLA Th. Lokeshwar Singh alleged BJP-led N. Biren Singh government of treating the opposition MLAs as enemies.
Present government needs to give cooperation to the works carried out by the opposition MLAs from the government funding. However they have been treated as enemies, which is very unfortunate, Lokeshwar said.
The MLA was speaking to media persons on the sideline of the inauguration ceremony of Sinam Multipurpose Community Hall and Sinam Youth Development Club, Sinam at Khundrakpam constructed under the MLA Local Area Development Fund, here today.
“If a local MLA of the opposition, Zila Parishad and those from the Congress and close to the Congress are barred from participating at the so call ‘Go To Village’ programme by treating them as enemies, what is the purpose of the programme?”, the MLA questioned.
MLAs are people’s representative to avail the benefits of schemes to people and respect their rights. The present Biren government is extremely bias in nature and he warns the state employees not to cooperate with the opposition MLAs, which is very unfortunate, added the former speaker.
“Use of slang words by Kishorchandra Wangkhem in his viral video is condemnable. However, he might have said it out of anger but his words doesn’t seems to disturbed the national security, neither will create a war or communal riot. Detaining a reporter under NSA without any condition is a kind of dictatorship rule,” Lokeshwar said.
“There will not be any press if there are no reporters. Reporter is very important for a state and must be given high respect. They are the people who can help reach informations and people’s voice throughout the state,” he added.
He said his aim is to make the Sinam village a model village and appeals not to give any disturbance which can hinder the development works in the constituency. He sought cooperation from all section of public for the development of the constituency.
