Imphal, October 27, 2017 (DIPR): Chief Minister N. Biren Singh has said that his Government has reaffirmed not to compromise with the territorial integrity of the State and oneness of its people at any cost.
Speaking to media persons at the sideline of Beti Bachao Beti Padhao Spot Painting Competition at DM College Multipurpose Hall today, the Chief Minister informed that the resolution of reaffirmation was taken during a meeting of Ministers and MLAs of coalition partners held some days back.
In order to strengthen this stand, an all-political party meeting would be held tomorrow at 4 pm at CM’s Secretariat, he said while adding that apart from taking a firm decision, an all-political party delegate would visit New Delhi to inform the Central leaders about this stand and ground reality if necessary.
Responding to a query regarding Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh’s assurance to Assam Chief Minister Sarbanand Sonowal regarding the former’s assurance of not altering Assam’s territorial boundary, Biren said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Rajnath Singh and BJP National president Amit Shah had already made the same promise to Manipur as well during campaigning of the last Assembly election.
The Chief Minister also said that he has trust in the leadership of the current Union Government.
However, the State Government would directly approach the Central Government if any suspicious move surfaces in the coming days, he added.
