BJP Manipur Pradesh president A Sharda Devi said that Congress MPs during the previous government were just for namesake in Parliament and could not even raised their voice on many issues of the state while stating that the present two BJP MPs of Manipur are playing a proactive role in presenting issues of the state in the house

Sharda stated this while attending the inaugural of BJP Thongju Mandal office as chief guest on Friday. She said that no political party has brought development unlike the BJP-led government in the state. The present government has taken up many flagship programmes and brought immense positive changes in just nearly five years.

People do not realise that there is an MP seat for Manipur in parliament as representatives of the state before this government always remained mum. However, the significance of having MPs came into notice after MP RK Ranjan was appointed as Union Minister of State for External Affairs and Education. Due to his experience and leadership qualities, such a portfolio was given, she added.

She criticised that the claim made by Congress that Kangla Fort was saved from Assam Rifles is not acceptable as various movements and agitation launched by women of the state has made the Assam Rifles leave the fort. The women folks should react against the false claim of Congress.

Sharda also alleged that during the Congress regime, encroachment of state’s land was started, but on the contrary, they blame it on the present BJP-led government. Moreover, people had lost their lives in the movement demanding implementation of ILP in Manipur during the Congress government.  Later, ILP was implemented when BJP came into power.

The programme was also attended by RD and PR minister, Thongam Biswajit; BJP Manipur Pradesh general secretary (Org), Abhay Giri; BJP Imphal East president, P December; and BJP Thongju Mandal president, L Tomba Singh as special guest, guests of honour and president respectively.
