Chaoba blames Ibobi for wasted oranges
IMPHAL | Feb 16
“Ibobi flied to Tamenglong, ate a scrumptious meal there and carried back one orange by helicopter, doing nothing to preserve the orange product of the district, which is rotting away in the absence of a cold storage,” Thounaojam Chaoba, convener of BJP State Election Management Committee said today.
Addressing the flag hoisting ceremony of Nameirakpam Dwijamani Singh, BJP candidate of Uripok constituency at the candidate’s residence Chaoba said the government must have built a cold storage to preserve the oranges after the festival.
“Farmers harvested all the oranges for the annual orange festival. As all the products did not find buyers most of the rotted because of no arrangement for preserving it,” he claimed.
Chaoba alleged that the Congress during its 15 year long rule turned a deaf ear to the plight of people, as the government is interested more in corrupt practices resulting in more bandh. Manipur experiences the highest number of bandhs and blockades in the country during the past 15 years.
“Tripura which was once a poor state is now developed one because of proper use of resources and fund without corruption. But for our state there is no sign of creation of any resource and development since the entire fund had gone to the pockets of the ministers’ pocket.” said Chaoba.
Stating even a child knows who 10 per cent is, he dubbed Ibobi government as the “most corrupt” not only in India but the whole world.
Chaoba claimed education of a child will remain futile as long as Congress government rules the state.
He assured the people that if BJP comes to power such a government will bring a bandh and blockade free state along with development in the state.
“It is high time for the people to act against this corrupt government by giving your valuable votes to BJP,” added Chaoba.
Uripok constituency is having a triangular contest. The other two candidates are sitting Congress MLA Laishram Nandakumar Singh and National People’s Party candidate Yumnam Joykumar Singh, former director general of police.
