Repeated attack to MPCC office is like inviting war: Ranjit, FIR lodged against BJYM leaders
Imphal: Congress MLA K.Ranjit Singh on Friday drew attention of chief minister N. Biren Singh in the Assembly on ‘repeated violent act’ by Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) Manipur towards Manipur Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) office.
The opposition MLA said exercising unwanted act repeatedly by state president of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha towards state Congress party could be taken as inviting a war against a political party.
Ranjit informed the House by taking the advantage of zero hour of the ongoing second session of 12th Manipur Legislative Assembly.
The attack of state BJYM led by its state president at the main gate of Manipur Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC), located in the heart of Imphal city, shows lack of discipline which needed to be avoided by a political party.
In a democratic country every citizen has right to perform democratic form of agitation. Kicking the gate of a political party office, threatening it’s security personnel on duty at MPCC office by using abusive words should be avoided. In a democratic form of government if the major political party can excerise any form of power then it could be taken as inviting a war, Ranjit said.
There are rules of law and even Union ministers are sent to jail for violating laws, he added.
He said BJYM led by its state president also conducted similar act in front of MPCC office on January 6 showing condemnation against the agitation carried by farmers regarding ‘farm law’ towards Prime Minister, Narendra Modi at Punjab.
The city Police station has registered an FIR, on Thursday, in connection with the complaint report submitted to City Police by MPCC leaders.
In the FIR the accused persons are named as Manipur president, BJYM, Manoharmayum Barish Sharma; Robarth Oinam; Suraj Waikhom; Tomthin Moirangcha; Bimol Moirangcha; Dexter Gurumayum, their other associates and other unknowns.

After the submission of the complaint report to City Police station on Thursday, one of spokesperson, MPCC expressed to media that if the complaint report failed to register as FIR by 2.45 pm of Friday, MPCC will complain at High Court of Manipur or relevant authority against Manipur Police.
