Imphal: Shiv Sena Manipur unit has strongly condemned ‘the practice of divisive policy carried by some community on their vested interest’ which could affect territorial integrity of Manipur.
Vice-president (administration), Shiv Sena Manipur state unit, M. Tikendra Singh expressed the political party’s reaction during a media interaction, here on Sunday.
He said Manipur is a small state of around 8,621 square miles settled by around 35 ethnic communities including Meitei and Meitei Pangal. However, some communities are allegedly carrying the practice of divisive policy which could affect territorial integrity of Manipur.
Besides people across the state are facing frequent issues and problems from economic blockade and bandh carried along national highways of Manipur by some communities or organisation in order to get their demands, he added.
Imposing economic blockade or indefinite bandh along the national highways has been becoming a main factor of price hike in essential commodities. In Manipur it is hard to reduce price once it is increased, Tikendra said.
The 75th years of Indian Independence is celebrating across the country but some assembly constituencies in Manipur are still not getting political rights. More than eight assembly constituencies in the state are not getting candidature rights but they can cast their votes, he added.
Tikendra said the state party president has departed for Mumbai to meet the central party leaders for discussing of the upcoming local body election. The state party president will be arriving Imphal on Thursday next and he will be announcing whether the party would contest in the local body election including ADC election.
